An old rivalry will offer a new twist Friday night when Greer High kicks off the 2015 football season at Clinton.
As the high school football season officially gets underway Friday night, two rivals will once again be battling for bragging rights.
Riverside flexed its muscles against Eastside last season, leaving no doubt during a 31-7 week one victory. This year, however, it could be a different story.
His team was barely clinging to a two-point advantage, but when Byrnes wide out Chavis Dawkins caught a screen pass late in the fourth quarter, he knew just what to do.
“I had to get to the end zone,” he said. “That’s it. That’s all I was thinking.”
The Little League World Series is over for South Carolina, but the boys from Northwood did not go down without a fight.
The Blue Ridge football team will open its 2015 campaign at home against Wade Hampton Friday night.
The Tigers were undersized during the matchup last year, but still came away with the week one victory on the road.
If history repeats itself, Byrnes’ Friday night matchup at T.L. Hanna should be a walk in the park.
The Rebels pummeled Hanna in week one last season, scoring early and often in route to a 50-0 win.
The Greer Touchdown Club kicks off Thursday, Aug. 27 at Greer First Baptist Church.

Lunch during each meeting will be catered by The Clock Restaurant and will open at 11:45 a.m. The program will start shortly after noon.
