High school football season in the Lowco is starting early this year.
A group of eight area public and private schools will compete in a special seven-on-seven tournament Thursday at Beaufort High, giving fans a stellar preview of this fall’s gridiron stars. Hosted by the South Coastal Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Beaufort High School, the event will feature Hilton Head High, Bluffton, Beaufort High, May River, Whale Branch, Wade Hampton, and defending SCISA 1A and 2A state champions Thomas Heyward and Hilton Head Christian Academy.
The tournament will kick off beginning with pool play at 9:30 a.m. on Beaufort High’s stadium and practice fields, and will finish by 3 p.m.
