The postseason accolades began to roll in for the Beaufort Academy football team Wednesday.
Senior linebacker Edward McCormick was named SCISA 8-Man Region 1 Defensive Player of the Year and junior running back De’Shaun Epps earned region Offensive Player of the Year honors for the second consecutive season.
Offensive lineman Daniel Richards, quarterback Dawson Coleman, receiver/kicker William Tumlin, and defensive lineman Elijah Fess joined McCormick and Epps on the all-region team.
McCormick has piled up 130 tackles (13 for loss) and 11 sacks to anchor the Eagles’ defense, and Epps has rolled up 1,952 rushing yards, 201 receiving yards, and 41 total touchdowns.
The duo has led BA to a school-record 7-2 mark and the No. 2 seed in the playoffs. The Eagles will host Richard Winn in the first round of the SCISA 8-Man playoffs at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
