Coach of the Week

Congratulations to last week's winner: Mickey Wilson of Myrtle Beach.

Here are this week's nominations:

Reggie Shaw, James F. Byrnes

Sometimes you’ve got to make an in-game adjustment. Shaw put in his backup quarterback with the game tied midway through the fourth quarter to give his team a spark. It worked. The backup ran for the go-ahead touchdown and Byrnes won.

Wayne Farmer, Calhoun County

Blackville-Hilda hadn’t lost a game all season. Not anymore. Farmer’s squad was obviously ready because the Saints walloped Blackville-Hilda 34-7. Calhoun County is now 7-1.

Shaun Wright, Cross

The Trojans opened the season with a loss to Calhoun County. They haven't lost since then. Cross walloped Military Magnet to improve to 7-1.

Tony McGeary, Thomas Heyward Academy

The Trojans beat Beaufort Academy and former coach Nic Shuford 41-28. Thomas Hayward is now 5-3 overall and 2-0 in conference play.

Jason Winstead, Goose Creek

Goose Creek lost five of six games in a brutal non-region schedule. But the Gators are 2-0 in region play, including Friday’s 29-25 win over Cane Bay.

Patrick Martin, Green Sea-Floyds

The Trojans are starting to make strides under their first-year coach. They beat Mullins 37-22 in region play and are now 2-6. Green Sea-Floyds won just one game last season.

Richard Bonneville, May River

May River downed Colleton County 42-28 to snap a four-game losing streak and keep the Sharks’ playoff hopes alive.

Ron Peduzzi, Hilton Head Christian

The Eagles have won five in a row after an 0-2 start. On Friday they whipped SCISA 3-A defending state champion Pee Dee Academy 38-0.

Tyler Boyd, Williamsburg Academy

Boyd is a first-year coach who inherited a state championship team. Nothing has changed. The Stallions beat Orangeburg Prep and former coach Don Shelley for their 19th consecutive win. Williamsburg is now 7-0.

Stephen Burris, Lamar

The Silver Foxes have won five in a row after a 1-3 start. They beat Hannah-Pamplico 48-20 on Friday.

Jason Tone, T.L. Hanna

The Yellow Jackets won a region showdown 36-33 over previously unbeaten Hillcrest by utilizing a powerful running game. T.L. Hanna is now 8-1.
