Rebels win NC State tourney

The Byrnes football team continued its summer success last weekend, winning a 7-on-7 tournament at North Carolina State University.

The Rebels picked up their first tournament victory of the season earlier this month at Auburn University.

Byrnes was undefeated in the recent tournament finishing 7-0 overall.

Riverside picked up five 7-on-7 victories last Friday at a tournament at the J.B. “Red” Owens Complex in Easley. Head coach Phil Smith said he has seen some positive things from his squad this offseason.

Warriors showing improvement

Riverside football coach Phil Smith said he was pleased with his team’s showing at a 7-on-7 tournament at Easley High School last Friday.

The Warriors walked away with five wins and Smith said his team will use that as momentum as they continue summer workouts.

Looking to dish out some hard hits in his senior season, Blue Ridge linebacker Eric Diaz said he is ready to lead the defense.

Diaz to anchor young defense

As one of the few returning starters on the Blue Ridge football defense, Eric Diaz knows he is going to have to step up and lead.

The senior linebacker said his team has managed to fill in holes so far this offseason, and expects nothing less heading into the fall.
