Bluffton quarterback CJ Frazier and wide receiver Marquis Webber, along with Whale Branch wide receiver Dee Delaney, have been selected to compete for the South squad in the 64th North-South All-Star Football Game to be held Dec. 8 in Myrtle Beach.
Frazier has completed 125 of his 202 passes this season for 1,956 yards and 30 touchdowns. He has thrown just two interceptions. He also has four rushing touchdowns.
Webber is the Bobcats' second-leading receiver with 37 receptions for 596 yards and 11 touchdowns. He has also rushed 24 times for 318 yards -- a 13.25 average -- and three more touchdowns and has an interception on defense.
"Both are three-year starers, both have been here since I got here," Bobcats coach Ken Cribb said. "They're hard workers, playmakers and well-deserving."
Cribb said he felt the Bobcats should have gotten some recognition earlier.
"I was disappointed," Cribb said. "I was hoping one or two would be selected for the Shrine Bowl, and that would have opened up some more room on the North-South roster for a couple more of our kids."
The Bobcats (10-0), No. 4 in Class 4-A, travel to Summerville on Friday for the regular-season finale. The winner takes home the Region 8-AAAA championship.
Delaney has just 25 catches for the season, but the Warriors, who are a run-first team, have only 36 as a squad. And Delaney has made the most of them, amassing 723 yards -- 28.92 yards per catch -- and 10 touchdowns. He also has 21 tackles, five passes broken up, and two fumble recoveries on defense.
Whale Branch head coach Jerry Hatcher said Delaney is the key to the Warriors' offense.
"He's the guy that makes it go," Hatcher said. "Even when we're not trying to get the ball to him, they have to respect his ability."
Hatcher said he doesn't know why Delaney hadn't gotten more attention from the Shrine Bowl, as well as NCAA Division I schools.
"I think Dee is big-time overlooked," Hatcher said. "I've got two starting on defense at South Carolina that I coached and another on scholarship at Clemson. He's just as good as they are. I think he's a D-I talent all the way. I've been at this 24 years, and he's as good as I've ever seen in the open field. If he catches the ball, I've been watching him long enough, I know the first man is going to miss.
"He's a good kid, he's got the ability. I think he's as good as there is in the state."
