|Sunday, November 19, 2017, 9:39 AM- -|
South Pointe (SC)’s Clemson commits both did their part to advance the 13-0 Stallions on in the 4A playoffs.
Derion Kendrick, a Tigers receiver commit, connected on 11-of-17 passes for 93 yards and a touchdown – and added eight rushes for 61 yards and two more touchdowns in a 48-0 win over Eastside:
Placekicker/punter B.T. Potter knocked eight touchbacks into the end zone on kickoffs, and he also saved a potential safety on a snap into the end zone by tracking it down and switching to a left-footed punt (which wasn't the first time this season he's done that).
Potter has logged 99 touchbacks in 106 kickoffs this season and also made 11-of-15 field goals (long of 45 yards).
Kendrick is approaching 1,000 yards rushing (913) and 2,500 passing (2,317) with a 71 completion rate, 25 touchdowns to five interceptions and 14 rushing scores.
South Pointe is ranked No. 5 nationally by USA TODAY.
Trevor Lawrence – 5-star Cartersville (GA) QB
Lawrence’s high school career wrapped under constant pressure from visiting Blessed Trinity (Ga.), which scored late to end Cartersville’s 41-game winning streak with a 21-17 victory of their own.
Lawrence was sacked four times, connecting on 16-of-29 passes for 148 yards and one touchdown. It was Lawrence's only non-multi-score game this season.
The 6-foot-6 prospect passed for 41 touchdowns to one interception as a senior, with 3,296 passing yards at a 69.1 completion rate.
His high school state records finished at a little under 14,000 yards passing (13,908) and over 160 passing scores (161).
