State rematch: Hounds vs. Southern Columbia


Fifteen of the Greyhounds’ players are seniors and they will be taking the field for the final time in their high school career.


“It feels kind of surreal,” said first-year Wilmington coach Brandon Phillian of his team advancing to Hershey for the second straight season.


Gaige Garcia, a 5-10 junior running back/linebacker, leads Southern Columbia in rushing with 1,907 yards on 185 attempts with 35 touchdowns.


Fleming has “30 to 40 Division I offers”, according to Roth, including three from this year’s college football playoff field – Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame.


Cameron Marett, a 5-foot-8, 160-pound senior running back/safety, is Lawrence County’s leading rusher, boasting 1,751 rushing yards on 200 carries.


The pregame show with Ryan Briggs starts at noon both days, followed by the games with Mark Slezak and Bob Greenburg calling the action.
