Greenbrier's new head football coach, Scott Chadwick, is getting his players and coaches up to speed on his new system during North Augusta's Summer Passing League.
New assistant coach Kevin Hunt is very familiar with the offense. It is the same system he ran as the head coach at Cross Creek last season. Hopefully Greenbrier's Nick Richards can run the offense like All-State quarterback Donald Hudson did for the Razorbacks a year ago.
Rumor has it that former Greenbrier star Eric Marshall's recovery from last season's ACL tear is right on schedule.
Marshall was on pace for a possible All-Conference-caliber year before the injury.
Expect him to have a monster senior season for Wofford this year. The 6-4 guard is one of the top returning guards in the Southern Conference.
Also, I might not have given enough recognition to a Columbia County duo who helped lead Georgia College & State University to a huge season in Division II baseball.
With all the success of our local kids on the high school level and the tremendous seasons by several county players at University of South Carolina Aiken, Michael Newman's incredible year might have gone unnoticed.
Well, it shouldn't have. Newman was sensational for the Bobcats this spring, 11-2 with an ERA of 1.78.
The sophomore right-hander walked only 11 batters, yielded only 16 earned runs and picked up eight saves in 81.6 innings.
Former Evans standout Seth Newsome also turned heads in Milledgeville. The junior was 5-0 with an ERA of 3.90 with 61 strikeouts in 64 innings of work.
This duo helped GC&SU to an amazing 52-13 record this season. Great job, guys.
