The Berry Academy all-purpose threat racked up 280 combined yards and four touchdowns, including a pair on special teams, in the Cardinals' 44-6 non-conference victory on Friday. Hopper, who has verbally committed to Clemson, scored on a 97-yard kick return and 68-yard punt return in the first quarter to lead Berry to a 15-0 advantage one quarter into the Cardinals' first game as a 4A program.
"He's a special kid, and I've been saying it since he was a freshman," Berry coach Andrew Howard said. "That's probably why he's going to Clemson."
