With the Dillon/W Hampton game tomorrow, Dillon will be playing in their 17th out of the last 18 lower state championship games. I didn't realize it was that many. The JV team hasn't lost a game in about 10 years!!!

Check out this article from HSSR.....
Class AAA Lower State - Wade Hampton (10-2) at Dillon (11-0)

This game highlights a pair of head coaches who are no stranger to state championship success. Wade Hampton’s Jerry Brown has won five state titles at three different high schools (Spring Valley, Berkeley, Batesburg-Leesville) while Dillon’s Jackie Hayes has won six championships, including five of the last six years.

Dillon is the defending state champion and has not been challenged during the first 11 games. The Wildcats boast a balanced, explosive offense while the defense gives up very little in the way of points or yardage.

Offensively, junior quarterback Jay Lester has thrown for more than 1,700 yards and 16 touchdowns, while backs Nemo Squire, Ty King and Nigel George have combined for more than 2,000 yards and 27 touchdowns. Dillon averages 250 yards rushing and 185 yards passing per game.

Receivers Ahmari Huggins-Bruce and Corrian Wright have combined for 74 catches and 1,250 yards.

Wright has five interceptions defensively while end Shamar McCollum and linebacker Dray Thompson are the leaders defensively.

Much of Wade Hampton’s success is in the running game where Brown features senior Pernell Maxwell, who the coach calls the best he’s ever coached. Maxwell shoulders the load in the running game, totaling 2,192 yards and 30 touchdowns through 12 games. He topped 1,700 yards as a junior.

Quarterback Quayshon Williams has been effective when the Red Devils throw, completing 11 touchdown tosses this season.

HSSR Prediction: Dillon 35, Wade Hampton 23

that's an awesome stat. happens when talent meets great coaching. dillon is nothing short of a dynasty at this time. Congrats on the run, i'm hoping things change in Rebel territory and we can be competitive with quality teams again.

Dillon/WH will not be close. They have approx 30 players on the roster, the qb cannot throw the ball. A well coached, fundamentally sound defense will shut them down. They beat my Rebels at home by 14 but that's the type of team we would have destroyed years ago.

Dillon 49
WH 14

Good luck this week and in the state title game.

The Red Devils (10-2) will take on defending state champion Dillon, a 38-2 winner over May River, next Friday for a spot in the Class AAA state title game in Columbia.

Brown, who has more than 260 victories on his resume, including five state championships, said Maxwell is in a class with two of his favorite former players – Berkeley High School’s Andre and Bruce Ellington – who helped lead the Stags to a Class AAAA state championship.

Both Andre and Bruce Ellington went on to play at Clemson and South Carolina, respectively, and eventually made it to the NFL. Bruce Ellington is currently playing for the Detroit Lions as a wide receiver.

“This kid dominates the game just like Andre and Bruce did when I was back at Berkeley,” Brown said. “He’s just as good as those guys were and hopefully, he’ll be another one that makes it to the NFL. He’s that good.” Over the past two seasons, Maxwell has rushed for more than 4,000 yards and scored 60 TDs. Yet, he was left off the rosters of the Shrine Bowl and the North-South All-Star games.

“It’s disgraceful,” Brown said. “I don’t know what more this kid could have done to get picked for one of those games. He dominates every game he plays in, just is like he did tonight.”
