Several local football stars have been selected to play for the South Carolina Lowcountry squad in the second annual Blitz Border Bowl, an all-star football game pitting the top players from the Lowcountry against the stars of the Georgia Coastal Empire.

The second annual game will be played Jan. 12 at Bluffton High School. 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.
