Capsule look at Greer vs. Travelers Rest

Published on Friday, September 21, 2012


Kickoff 7:30 p.m.

Last week: Greer lost its Peach Blossom Conference 3A opener to rival Greenville, 24-21. In a game of inches, Greer failed on a field goal attempt, had perfect coverage on Greenville’s winning football catch only to see it grabbed away with 1:04 remaining in the game, and was called for the unusual penalty for aiding Brook Chapman across the goal line that cost a touchdown. Chapman, it should be pointed out, is the one usually carry opponents across the goal line. Greenville’s late score was set up by quarterback Clark Scolamiero who zigged and zagged for valuable yardage in the fourth quarter until he needed to deliver the TD pass.

“We’ve got to get Quez (Nesbitt) into the second level so he can make things happen. We’ve lost tough ones before and we bounced back.” – Greer Head Coach Will Young.

Let’s be honest. This is another Greer game that you can name the score. And by the way, when’s the last time Greer was playing to get out of the cellar of its region? Nesbitt should find it a little easier to maneuver, Josh Gentry will be looking for some consistency throwing the ball to his receivers, not high pop ups, and Brook Chapman said last week he likes playing offense and defense. If you want to focus on one player on defense, check out John Hicks. Wherever the ball is, Hicks will be there, too. Greer’s defense has been stout and is a positive constant. Travelers Rest has lost two straight sandwiched around a bye. Greer has an axe to grind.
