OCT 30, 2015

Troy Pride (5) has Kevon Jones of Blue Ridge in his crosshairs as Greer running back Adrian McGee watches intently for the block to send him on his way.
 

Greer stepped onto the football field at rival Blue Ridge Friday night with its unbeaten record on the line and left with a 32-7 victory over the Tigers and another slice of history for itself.

The Yellow Jackets, ranked No. 3 in the state in Class 3A, recorded back-to-back undefeated seasons for the first time in the nearly 100-year history of Greer football and will carry a 10-0 mark into the Class 3A playoffs for the second straight year.

“It's absolutely amazing to go undefeated two times in a row with your brothers is just amazing,” Greer linebacker Brodie Wright said.

Sammons, of Blue Ridge, sets 4th-best receiving record in prep history
OCT 26, 2015

Jason Sammons acknowledges a historic night with 434 yards receiving on 15 catches. Four receptions resulted in touchdowns.
 

Blue Ridge wide receiver Jason Sammons stood in Head Coach Shane Clark's office on Monday afternoon and signed his name to a records form bearing the National Federation of State High School Association's letterhead.

It was his signature on a game for the ages.

Sammons vaulted into the national record books, catching 15 passes for an eye-popping 434 yards and four touchdowns in last Thursday’s varsity football game against Chapman. It is an unofficial state record since the South Carolina High School League doesn’t maintain a records database.

His yardage is the third most in a single game in U.S. high school history.

OCT 1, 2015

Blue Ridge's Vonta Jenkins’ 87-yard return of the opening kickoff set up his own 1-yard touchdown run in the first quarter.
 
 

Emerald’s inaugural visit to Blue Ridge’s Tiger Stadium was everything the Vikings needed and wanted.

Spurred by big plays in the ground game from running backs Willie Reynolds and KeShawn Settles, who ran for three touchdowns apiece, the Vikings got their first road win of the season with a 49-28 victory over Blue Ridge.

“We knew they had all kinds of speed coming in here and it was going to be tough for us to match up there,” Blue Ridge Head Coach Shane Clark said.
