Four area football stars from four different schools were named to the South roster for the 2019 Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Bowl to be played Dec. 14 in Myrtle Beach.
Commonly known as the North-South all-star game, the Touchstone Energy Bowl features some of the top high school seniors from throughout the state.
Among the all-stars on the 44-player South roster are Battery Creek defensive end Brandon Wilson, Beaufort High running back James Dagin, May River defensive back Terry Fields, and Bluffton wide receiver Rakim White.
Wilson has been a disruptive force for a Battery Creek defense that has dominated during the Dolphins’ current three-game winning streak. He is second on the team in tackles (33) and leads the team in sacks (7), tackles for loss (5), and fumble recoveries (2).
Dagin leads the Eagles with 557 rushing yards and four touchdowns on 70 carries, an average of 7.96 yards per carry, and has added 16 receptions for 205 yards, which ranks third on the team.
Fields has recorded 31 tackles, six pass breakups, two interceptions, and a forced fumble during the Sharks’ 6-1 start. He also has a punt return for a touchdown and serves as the Sharks’ punter, averaging 37.1 yards per kick.
White has caught 37 passes for 800 yards and eight touchdowns, and he is one of the state’s most dangerous kick returners, averaging 35.77 yards on 22 kickoff returns, including an incredible five touchdowns.
