Online Exclusives

The local football season provided another highlight at the Blitz Border Bowl at Savannah’s Memorial Stadium.

The contest between senior all-stars of the Lowcountry and Coastal Empire was a tightly contested game, with the Lowcountry prevailing 14-13. 

The Lowcountry was paced by Wade Hampton’s Jamian Risher (MVP) who caught a 59-yard touchdown pass and threw the go-ahead 36-yard touchdown pass to Jayden Gilliam of Hilton Head High.

The winning score came on a reverse as Risher rolled left and fired to Gilliam.

The go-ahead extra point was booted by Hilton Head Prep’s Trevor Weldon. 

The Lowcountry rallied from a 13-0 deficit. 

Risher was recently named to the prestigious 2021 South Carolina Football Coaches Association Palmetto Champions Team with Alvin Wilson and coach Bryce Lybrand of Beaufort High.
