Spring Valley linebacker Channing Tindall won’t play in next week’s Shrine Bowl.
Tindall has been bothered by a shoulder injury late in the season, which forced him to miss a playoff game against Conway.
Tindall is the second Midlands player who will miss the game because of injury. Wyatt Campbell had knee surgery last month and won’t play.
Tindall is the No. 24 recruit in the 2018 class, according to the 247 Composite. He’s rated as the top outside linebacker and top player in the state. South Carolina, Georgia, Auburn and Florida are reportedly the top four vying for his commitment.
Dillon linebacker and Appalachian State commit Zareon Hayes will take Tindall’s spot in the game.Hayes had seven tackles and ran for two touchdowns in the Wildcats’ 3A state championship victory Saturday.
Dorman’s Jordan McFadden and Bluffton’s Jermaine Patterson also won’t play in the game. McFadden was injured near the end of Saturday’s Class 5A championship against Dutch Fork. Patterson won’t be playing because of playing basketball.
Chapman receiver Patrick Phongsat is one of the replacements. Phongsat caught nine passes for 126 yards in Saturday’s Class 3A championship game. For the year, he caught 66 passes for 1,078 yards and 17 touchdowns.
Greenville’s Ty Hellams will be the other replacement. Hellams caught 61 passes for 1,017 yards and 14 TDs.
The Shrine Bowl is Dec. 16 at Wofford College.
