The Greer Post 115 senior legion team will begin its quest for another state title this week, hoping to repeat its success from 2019.
The Byrnes football team wrapped up its 7-on-7 with a trip to Hoover High School in Alabama earlier this month.
The tough competition capped summer workouts for Rebel skill players, who begin practice next week.
“We didn’t have a great tournament, but we got a ton of good reps in,” head coach Reggie Shaw said.
He’s the only remaining member of Post 115’s 2019 state championship team, and Brody Fowler is ready to do it again.
Now committed to UNC Greensboro, Fowler has taken on more of a leadership role during his 2021 run with the Warhawks.
A top-ranked football prospect is leaving Greer High School.
Jaleel Skinner will transfer to IMG Academy for the fall season, according to team officials. Skinner, a class of 2022 tight end, is being recruited by Florida State, Miami, Clemson, Alabama and Texas.
