Football returns to the Lowco on Saturday night when the Hilton Head Sharks host the S.C. Gators in the inaugural Lowcountry Championship Bowl.
Meet the 2022 All-Lowco Football Team, SCISA edition!
The All-Lowco Football Team presented by LowcoSports.com honors the top high school football players from the South Carolina Lowcountry, including Beaufort, Jasper, Colleton, and Hampton counties.
More than three months after Rodney Summers stepped down as head football coach at May River High School in the wake of the Sharks’ first-round playoff loss to Myrtle Beach, the program is moving toward finding its next coach after a two-month delay.
A Lowcountry coaching legend is stepping down, but he’s sticking around to help the next guy add to his already impressive resume.
It took 612 games and countless hours in the car, sometimes sniffling through a cold in the stands, but Jimmy Searson finally saw the Beaufort High School football game he so desperately wanted to witness. His beloved Beaufort Eagles are state champs.
The coaches who missed on Kacy Fields better hope they aren’t on the opposing sideline when they finally see it.
Bryce Lybrand and the Beaufort Eagles never forgot the feeling of coming up short. From the moment his former mentor snatched the crown away in 2021, Lybrand’s mind was set on taking that last step. Twelve months, thirteen wins, and one masterpiece of a season later, the feeling at the final whistle was pure joy.
Kacy Fields dominated with 219 rushing yards and three touchdowns plus one more on a 93-yard kickoff return, Colton Phares added 198 yards on the ground with two scores, and the Eagles topped Powdersville 41-31 without attempting a pass at Benedict College on Thursday to capture the SCHSL 3A state championship and bring home Beaufort County’s first public school football state title since 1945.
If you’re new around here, the juggernaut Bryce Lybrand has built at Beaufort High might have you thinking it’s old hat for football teams from the Lowco to make the trek to Columbia (or Clemson, in different times) the week after Thanksgiving and try to bring home a state title. Not so much.
