Several local football stars will play for the South Carolina Lowcountry squad in the second annual Blitz Border Bowl all-star football game at noon on Saturday, Jan. 12, at Savannah’s Memorial Stadium. The Lowcountry stars will take on the top players from the Georgia Coastal Empire. The game originally was scheduled to be played at Bluffton High School but was moved to Savannah. 

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.

The Georgia all-stars won the inaugural game 15-3 at Pooler’s Community Stadium last January. 

The Lowcountry team will include Battery Creek’s Jordan Gwyn, DeNarol Brown, and Gabe Singleton; Beaufort High’s Dexter Ratliff and Ky’Yea Little; Beaufort Academy’s Edward McCormick; and Whale Branch’s Dequan Griswold, Kyshon Hipp, and CJ Brown.
