Pinewood Prep notes: The Panthers arent just about basketball anymore. With the arrival of Pinky Guerard as head coach last season, the Summerville-area school has become a player on the SCISA football scene. The former long-time assistant to John McKissick is finding talent turning up at his doorstep, such as the case of two former Summerville players that have transferred in receiver LaQuan Gilliard and quarterback Bruce Haynes The long-suffering Panthers went 6-6 last season in Guerards first season at Pinewood, and the future appears very bright.
Game notes: The Skyhawks have two straight SCISA Class 3A titles, winning 25 of 26 games The veteran offense figures to be very potent with the return of Cliff Ayers at quarterback, Brad Meredith at running back, Aaron Walters, Kyle George and A.D. Briggs at receiver. Chase Loveless moves over from defense to anchor a young, priming offensive line On defense, blue-chipper Will Patterson move from end to linebacker. The other top veterans include linebacker Bradford McGillivary and defensive backs Robert Simmons and Taylor Smith.
