Super soph wins most promising offense award

Ledger Sports Editor

It’s unusual that a sophomore wins the most promising offense award at the Gaffney High football team’s annual award banquet.

But Kelvin “Peanut” Kirby is not your usual sophomore.

Kirby led the Indians with 1,233 rushing yards, averaging nearly seven yards a carry.

Another underclassmen, junior Quez Smith, won the defensive most promising award.

Offensive lineman Dashun Tate, who played in the North- South All-Star Game, received the Tomahawk Award, while fellow offensive lineman Jack Coleman won the Spirit of the Spear Award.

Wideout Tamerio Phillips received the offensive coaches award.

Cam Rice took home the coaches award for defense, while linebacker Daylon Littlejohn received the Tomahawk Award for defense.

Defensive lineman Hunter Decker won the Ultimate Warrior award for the second year in a row for his exploits in the weight room.

Center Klayton Randolph won the Academic Award and punter Richard Sealy took home the special teams award.

Awards for the Gaffney jayvee program were handed out, too. Those winners were: outside linebacker Satron Mc- Dowell for most promisting defensive player; Undrea Lindsay for most promising offensive player; cornerback/ wideout Malyke Hollis for coaches award and Matthew Easler for the top offensive lineman.

The ninth-grade award winners included: Tyler Hames for top offensive lineman; A.J. Littlejohn for most promising defensive player and Dontae Watkins for most promising defensive player.
