Vote for the SBLive Sports Athlete of the Week

Congratulations to last week's winner: Grayson White of Camden.


Here are this week's nominees:

Justin Welch, Dutch Fork, Football

The junior kicker booted a 39-yard field goal with eight seconds left, lifting the Silver Foxes to a dramatic 31-30 win over J.L. Mann in the 5-A Upper State championship game. Welch made his game-winning kick despite being iced twice with J.L. Mann timeouts.

Mondo Domenech, White Knoll, Football

Domenech had a key, fourth-quarter interception to set up a touchdown in the undefeated Timberwolves’ 21-14 win over Summerville in the 5-A Lower State championship game.

J.J. Davis, Mullins, Boys Basketball

Davis scored 30 points as the Auctioneers edged Camden 84-82. The 5-foot-9 senior is averaging 22 points in the Auctioneers’ first three games.

B.J. Montgomery, Gray Collegiate Academy, Football

Montgomery had a rushing touchdown and returned a kickoff 88 yards for a touchdown as the War Eagles knocked off defending 2-A state champion Abbeville 27-12.

Justin Joe, South Florence, Football

It’s rare for an offensive lineman to score a touchdown but Joe did so Friday night and it was crucial. The 6-foot-1, 285-pound senior picked up a teammate’s fumble and ran 17 yards for a touchdown, giving the undefeated Bruins a 21-7 lead over Irmo. They ended up winning, 28-21.

Joyce Edwards, Camden, Girls Basketball

The South Carolina commit had 23 points, 14 rebounds, 4 steals and 3 blocks in a 46-34 win over North Augusta. Edwards is a 6-foot-2 forward who averaged 28.5 points last season while leading the Bulldogs to the 3-A state championship.

Malik Shippy, Johnsonville, Football

Shippy ran for a pair of touchdowns and threw for another as Johnsonville rallied from 10 points down to top Bamberg-Ehrhardt 20-10 in the 1-A Lower State championship game.

Kolton Chapman, Daniel, Football

The Lions’ quarterback ran for two touchdowns and threw a touchdown pass in a 28-23 win over Belton-Honea Path in the 3-A Upper State championship game. Chapman was 15-of-25 for 144 yards and had 82 yards rushing on 15 carries.

Grayson White, Camden, Football

The quarterback who has the size of a lineman continues to shine on the big stage. White was 21-of-27 for 309 yards and had 4 rushing touchdowns as the Bulldogs beat Brookland-Cayce 46-30 in the 3-A Lower State championship game.

Aiden Manavian, Oceanside Collegiate Academy

The freshman quarterback threw four touchdown passes as the Landsharks beat Hampton County 42-21 in the 2-A Lower State championship game.
