We’ve already given you a sneak preview of some of the top names to listen out for on the offensive/defensive side of the football. Today we would like to give you a quick rundown on some of the guys that got it done on special team this past season.
Berkeley’s DJ Chisolm made opposing teams pay on last season, when they opted to kick the football in his direction.
First off, we’d like to start out with some of the area’s most dangerous return men. Your best bet is to play it safe, and kick the ball away from this group below. You’ve been warned!!!
DJ Chisolm: The dangerous return man out of Berkeley High School fielded 6 punts for 209 return yards (34.8 average), and took 3 of them back for scores. He also had 335 yards while handling kick return duties on this past season.
Darius Taylor: A serious threat on special teams for Hemingway this past season. Taylor scored 4 times (3 punts / 1 kick-off) on special teams for the Tigers last fall.
Sterling White: Teams rarely made the mistake of kicking to the Hilton Head star this past fall, but whenever they did, he simply made them pay for it. White is without question, one of the state most electrified players with the football in his hands.
Toronto King: Opposing teams had to find out the hard way, that kicking the ball to King was an absolute no-no. If you don’t believe us, check out the first three clips on his highlight reel, where it shows the Carvers Bay star taking them back to the house.
Kickers/Punters to watch
Lance Calcutt: The junior out of Colleton County High School averaged 43.7 yards a punt, and pinned his opponents inside the 20-yard line on 9 occasions. Calcutt had a career long punt of 72 yards on this past season.
Jonathan Orr: A name that we’ve been familiar with for about three seasons now. The 6-3, 205-pound kicker/punter out of Hilton Head Island HS has been holding things down for the Seahawks since his freshman season.
Andrew Weil: The Wando kicker was 28 of 28 in PATs for the Warriors this past season, while nailing a couple of fields 45+ yards.
Alex Lazik: The Ashley Ridge kicker was perfect in field goal attempts completing 7 out of 7, including a 40-yarder for the Swamp Foxes.
