South Carolina commit Zacch Pickens showed off his running skills again and quarterback commit Luke Doty had a hand in all three of Myrtle Beach’s touchdowns Friday night.

Pickens, a five-star defensive line commit, had a 79-yard run and also had a 1-yard TD run in TL Hanna’s 60-22 win over Wade Hampton. The 79-yard run was Pickens’ longest of his career. The 6-foot-5, 265-pounder capped off the drive with a 1-yard run for his 10th touchdown of the season.

Pickens’ 80 total yards also was a career-high. On defense, he had three tackles and a sack.

Doty, the junior and Class of 2020 commit, was 24-of-37 passing for 268 yards and two touchdowns and also ran for 45 yards and a score in the 21-0 win over Marlboro County.

Class of 2019 quarterback commit Ryan Hilinksi threw for 245 yards and a pair of touchdowns and ran for one in the 56-21 loss to JSerra on Saturday. The game was moved to Saturday because of heavy rain and lighting in Southern California on Friday night.

Hilinski now has 25 touchdown passes on season.

Northwestern receiver Jamario Holley had the game-winning touchdown for the second straight week. Holley’s 11-yard catch from Dustin Noller with 8:42 left was the difference as Northwestern defeated Nation Ford, 21-20 for its second straight win.

Holley finished with two catches for 18 yards.
