Two days after pledging his services to South Carolina, Damiere Byrd continued to put up huge numbers for Timber Creek (N.J.).
The senior speedster accounted for 200 total yards in a 42-24 win over Eastern (N.J.). He rushed for times for 95 yards and an 80-yard touchdown and caught six passes for 105 yards and a 40-yard score. That’s 18.2 yards per touch.
Perhaps Timber Creek coach Rob Hinson summed it up best when he said earlier this season that Byrd is “absolutely electrifying.”
Byrd has rushed 54 times this season for 615 yards (11.4 per carry) and nine touchdowns. He has 18 receptions for 257 yards (14.3 per catch) and two scores.
