After a dismal showing against Byrnes, Greer is going back to the drawing board before traveling to Boiling Springs this Friday night.
Time was a factor in Byrnes’ 49-13 crushing win over Greer on Friday night. The Yellow Jackets picked a bad time to play the Rebels when they were shifting into high gear. Andrew Stevens had eons of time to throw the ball. There were scads of TV time outs. Greer threw untimely pass interceptions and didn’t take time to collect a kickoff.
Byrnes High’s James Oates was named The Greer Citizen/Owens Insurance Defensive Player of the Week; Greer High’s Chris Hall was named The Greer Citizen/Owens Insurance Offensive Player of the Week and Paden Armstrong was named The Greer Citizen/Owens Lineman of Week 2..
Garrett Hall is a 6-foot-3, 260-pound senior offensive lineman at Byrnes who is one of the premier talents in the trenches for the Rebels.

For the Greer Citizen
If there were ever doubts about the intensity of the Byrnes-Greer rivalry, those were silenced Friday night before the Rebels and Jackets even kicked off at Dooley Field.
