HSFB: Lowcountry Stars Picked For 2nd Blitz Border Bowl

The Blitz Border Bowl, an all-star football game pitting the top players from the South Carolina Lowcountry against the stars of the Georgia Coastal Empire, will return for a second year.

The second annual game will be played Jan. 12 at Bluffton High School. May River’s Rodney Summers will serve as the head coach for the Lowcountry all-stars, whose roster will feature nine players from Summers’ Sharks, as well as standouts from Battery Creek, Beaufort High, Beaufort Academy, Bluffton, Colleton County, Hilton Head High, John Paul II, Ridgeland-Hardeeville, Wade Hampton, and Whale Branch.

Summers is working to compile his coaching staff, which will include assistants from his May River staff as well as coaches from other area schools.
