A baker’s dozen area private-school football stars were selected to play for the South All-Stars in the 2020 SCISA North-South All-Star Football Game tonight at Heathwood Hall in Columbia.
Thomas Heyward coach Nic Shuford will serve as head coach for the South squad after leading the Rebels to a third consecutive SCISA 1A state championship.
Shuford will have five of his own players on the roster — OL/DL Therion Cannon and John Hewlett, QB/DB Peyton Bennett, RB/DB JR Patterson, and ATH Bruzza Pusha — as well as a quartet of stars from SCISA 2A champion Hilton Head Christian Academy — QB/WR/DB JP Peduzzi, WR/DB Cameron Strickland, DL Liam Sirgo, and LB Troy Chisolm.
Beaufort Academy WR/LB Elijah Fess and RB/DB Ja’Sean Lawson are also on the roster, along with Hilton Head Prep RB/WR/DB Tommy Stauffer and John Paul II QB/DB Jeremiah Young.
The game is set to kick off at 6 p.m. Friday.
