Screen Shot 2015-11-12 at 8.06.24 AMOmar Cummings makes a lot of things look easy. Touchdowns are one of them. In last week’s game against Berkeley, which was a must-win for Beaufort HS in order to qualify for the playoffs, Omar scored every touchdown. All eight of them setting a new Beaufort High School record. And BHS needed each one.

Cummings performance ranked as one of the best single-game offensive performances in South Carolina high school football history. The Eagles, under the direction of head coach Mark Clifford, won without 1,000-yard rusher Wyatt Sherpensky who is out for the season.

Cummings stats for the game were:

• 35 carries for 404 yards total

• Eight touchdowns of 2 yds, 42 yds, 58 yds, 64 yds, 13 yds, 22 yds, 16 yds & 15 yds.

With the hard-fought win over Berkeley, Beaufort High evened its record to 5-5 and qualified for the state playoffs. Beaufort is a No. 4 seed and will face No. 1 seed Midland Valley (6-4) on the road in the opening week of the postseason this coming Friday, Nov. 13th. Beaufort High and Midland Valley have not met since 1989.
