2008 Team to Watch: Byrnes

PrepNation.com continues to look ahead to the 2008 high school football season. We're still a few months away from the start of our expanded preseason national rankings release, but it's not too soon to whet your appetite with mini-previews of teams that are likely to figure very prominently on the national scene this season.

Of all the teams we have looked at so far early this preseason, perhaps no team has a better looking resume for the preseason No. 1 national ranking than South Carolina power Byrnes.

In his debut season as head coach, Chris Miller led the Rebels to their fifth state champion in six years. It was a perfect 15-0 season capped off by a convincing 48-9 rout of once nationally ranked Summerville in the 4A/Division I final.

Seventeen starters return (9 offense, 8 defense) from that team including all five offensive linemen and the team's top offensive playmakers. Senior receiver Ricco Sanders has sub-4.5 speed and caught 58 passes for over 900 yards with 13 touchdowns. Marcus Lattimore might be the nation's top running back recruit next season. He ran for more than 1,800 yards, had over 400 receiving yards, and scored 30 touchdowns as a sophomore. Junior quarterback Chas Dodd returns under center after passing for 3,208 yards and 32 touchdowns in his rookie season.

Byrnes will continue its tradition of playing a fantastic out-of-state schedule. The Rebels face Florida powers Pahokee (on ESPN) and Tallahassee Lincoln along with traveling to last year's Georgia 5A runner-up North Gwinnett (Suwanee).


Byrnes Rebels (Duncan, S.C.)
Coach: Chris Miller (15-0, 1 year at Byrnes)

2007: 15-0, Class 4A/I state champion, No. 10 National Prep Poll ranking

Top returning players: WR Ricco Sanders (6-0, 175, 58 receptions for 908 yards, 13 TDs), RB Marcus Lattimore (6-0, 209, Jr., 2,229 combined rushing/receiving yards, 30 TDs), CB Riyahd Richardson (5-9, 165, 6 INTs)

Key losses: DL Everett Dawkins (Florida St.), DB Cartier Rice (Kentucky), WR Randall Hawkins (South Carolina St.)

All systems go: Overall experience, offensive line, defensive line

Questions must be answered: Special teams

Toughest games: @North Gwinnett, Ga. (Aug. 29), vs. Tallahassee, Fla., Lincoln (Sept. 19), @Gaffney (Sept. 26), vs. Pahokee, Fla. on ESPN (Oct. 3), @Dorman (Oct. 24).

    VERY GOOD ARTICLE!! BYRNES HAS HAD SOME GOOD TEAMS BUT, THIS YEARS TEAM WILL BE THE BEST WE HAVE EVER HAD! REMEMBER THIS WE DID WHAT WE DID LAST YEAR LEAD BY TWO PLAYERS QB AND RB THAT SHOULD HAD BEEN ON THE JV TEAM AS 10TH GRADERS. THEY ARE SO GOOD NOT ONLY DID THEY START AND GO UNDEFEATED THEY BROKE 4 SCHOOLS RECORDS! THIS WILL BE OUR TOUGHEST SCHEDULE ALSO! NEXT YEAR WE WILL TRAVEL TO TEXAS STADIUM TO PLAY A TEXAS TEAM. XAVIER FROM OHIO NEEDS TO TRAVEL TO SC TO PLAY US NEXT YEAR. WE HAVE BEEN UP THERE TWICE AND WE ARE 2-0 AGAINST TWO GOOD OHIO TEAMS. LET'S SEE HOW THEY WILL DO IF THEY TRAVELED. BYRNES REBELS SHOULD GO 15-0 THIS YEAR ALSO AND BE RANKED #1 AT THE END OF THE YEAR ALSO!! BYRNES HAS TO PLAY AT GAFFNEY IN THEIR NEW STADIUM THIS YEAR. THE ONLY TEAM TO BEAT US IN THE PAST 5 YEARS.

    You played two extremely average teams from Ohio. Let's call a spade, a spade. The Centerville team you beat last year in overtime was absolutely SMOKED by X 31-6. It was 31-0 at half and almost the entire X varsity roster saw playing time in the second half. In 2006, you were lucky to squeak out an extra point mishap and a missed field goal to beat what ended up as a 5-5 Moeller squad. X smoked that team too, 21-0. The OHSAA has travel restrictions outside of contiguous states. One time per interscholastic season provided that no school time is lost. Since there are no breaks (labor day weekend is the Herbie) in football season, there is no way to loop around this rule. You might think you want Xavier this year after graduating 18 starters, but I don't think you'd want them either.

    The story on Byrnes is you left out the fact there is a small 3A school just 30 miles away from Byrens that has beat them seven times out of eight several years back. Byrnes has turned down even scrimmaging the small school numerous times must less wanting to play them again. The small 3A team holds a 4 game win streak on their on Nixon field. Did I mention that the school I am talking about is the Clinton Red Devils of South Carolina. This small school has been winning an average of ten games a season for over thirty-five years. OUTSTANDING feat I might add. So, I challenge the Byrnes Rebels to come get you some, the Red Devils are ready and back down from no team. The way to beat Byrnes is to interrupt their timing, bump the ends and WR's and knock the running backs on their butts.

    The last time Byrnes played Clinton was in 1981(27 years ago)not just "several years back". I think Byrnes will have a good year, dispite the tough schedule.

    btango said...

    Obvious the Byrnes fan that initially posted stirred the pot and showed his ignorance on the subject but I think Byrnes is an elite national program and I have seen many of the best in the US play in person.

    St X was loaded last year to say the least! Byrnes improved dramatically but I do not think they could have handled St X.

    I don't think comparing the 2006 scores with Moeller proves much. Byrnes traveled by plane and stayed in a hotel which is a big deal for high school kids. St X did the expected.

    Centerville was a long bus ride but I agree Centerville has a great record in the regular season and then gets pastedin the D1 playoffs, the best in the US probably.

    I give Byrnes their due and expect them to be extremely impressive this year.

    St X should find a way to make it happen. Skip the challange next year and travel to play Byrnes. The way I see it, put up or shut up! We have alot of RESPECT for all of Ohio teams. Xavier is the best of Ohio. Byrnes is the best of SC. After this year we will have played 4 teams from Fla., 2 from Ohio, 1 from Tenn., 1 from Ga.,and 1 from La.(loss). Byrnes has shown that they will play anyone and will travel. The dream game would be Xavier vs Byrnes in Duncan SC. To the Clinton fan,27 years ago? Remember this Byrnes is 83-4 since 2002. Against some top teams. The past 4 years Clinton is 44-10!? Against weaker teams. How many state championships have you won in this decade? We have 5. I cannot beleive after all that Byrnes has done that you think that you all can beat us. Good luck this year. GO REBELS!!!

    17 returning starters off a state championship team is unreal.The Rebels of Duncan,SC will get my vote for preseason #1.

    Anonymous said...

    True it has been since 1981. Why? Because they are scared to play the little 3A team because of some point system thing. But I say if they (Byrnes) is so damn good,and they(Byrnes) say they are going to win it all, points shouldn't matter. But the truth be known it's the butt kicking they take from the Might Red Devils. The Nation of High School football should know the truth and that is the Rebels will not even scrimmage the Red Devils of Clinton, S.C. Bobby Bentley turned down three invitations just to scrimmage the Devils. The Rebels may can bragg about beating out of state teams and brag about being on a win streak in state, but one thing they cannot brag about and that is beating the Mighty Red Devils of Clinton S.C. Fork Byrnes, Clinton did. The record stands at 7 wins for the Red Devils and one win for the Rebels between the two teams.They should add one one color to their uniforms and that is a YELLOW streak down the back of the jersey's.

    All i have to say is one thing. The guy from clinton is on crack!!!!!!!!!

    driving48 said...

    I think he better get out of the 70's and 80's generation! It is anew ball game now.Byrnes would walk through clinton like muddy water.We would not waste our time or gas to play a team like clinton.All i can say is you need a head doctor.

    once again good luck against small teams. We do play a 3A school Greer. They are next to us. If you can not win a 3A state championship how could Clinton beat Byrnes? Oh yea that's right you have the answer. You may want to share it with Summerville. They could not stop us and have you ever heard of their coach? Sounds like you may be a coach your self. So good luck with your pee wee team.Remember to tell them to check the WR and hit the RB. Don't be a hater! Be glad that Byrnes can represent our state as well as we have, it shows OUR state has good high school football teams.

    Anonymous said...

    Sounds like the guy from Clinton has a legitimate complaint. Why don't you play them? Is it true they dominated Byrnes in the past? Why not start a new rivalry between the two schools. Are you really afraid to play them? I did do some research, Clinton Red Devils seem to be a team to contend with year in and year out. Why not? You don't have anything to lose but your pride. It does kinda look like the Byrnes Rebels are running from the Devil. Just wondering, what's the real truth as to why you will not play them?The Nation eally wants to know.

    Anonymous said...

    Are you serious? Clinton hasn't won a state championship game in over 20 years. Byrnes seeks out the best competition in the land. How can he possibly have a point, other than on the top of his head.
    I'm not saying Clinton is bad, they are a decent team, but they can't muster a national ranking, and only one appearance in a state title game in over 20 years. Now as for all this chatter about playing I've heard of no official offer to play a real regular season game. That's most likely more garbage. I could care less whether we play Clinton or not, but its not the deal he makes it out to be. Besides if you wanted to be the best inthe land would you play Clinton or Pahokee?

    Anonymous said...

    Let's see Byrnes is striving to be the top ranked in the nation. Clinton has a hard time winning local. When you start talking about top teams in the nation you do not mention Clinton. ESPN knows good teams. This will be the third time we have been on that channel. We are looking forward to this season. Playing at North Gwinnet HS in Ga. at home against Lincoln HS from Fl and on ESPN against Pahokee Fl. We will be playing the only team to beat us in the last 5 years in their new stadium Gaffney HS. They will try to protect that new field. They also will have a jumbotron like ours but a little bigger they say. The rebels of Byrnes HS will be attending the Nike 7 on 7 passing in Oregon this summer. Go Rebels!!

    Anonymous said...

    Thanks to Jamie for the foresight of the talent returning to this team. Byrnes will be loaded with RB Marcus Lattimore (predicted top RB in the nation his Sr Season) setiing more school records. With QB Chase Dodd with him to throw the ball they will be hard to stop. Do not over look that Trey Bailey is as good as Chase. He will be a Sr. Also 4 of the 5 starting O-Line will be Sr this year. We have 3-4 D1 players this year and about 5 for the next. Look out Texas next year here we come!

    Anonymous said...

    Looks like the Byrnes Rebels still aviated the question. At one time I heard that Byrnes was everyone's Homecoming game, so they too have been at the bottom. Just recently have they been playing decent games and winning. Are you really running from the Clinton Red Devils? I have heard of the Clinton Red Devils for many years, just lately have I ever heard of Byrnes Rebels and I live in Georgia.

    Naughts said...

    Hats off to Byrnes and playing 3 out-of-state teams this year and doing it year in and year out... As a Dreadnaught we appreciated the extra support by your players in Cincy... forget St. X... it will never happen... END OF DISCUSSION! Now, I know a certain team 'wink-wink' that would definitely entertain an invitation so if you have the ability, put the word out! Please keep in mind that a Florida team can only travel outside the state once per year... We had an invitation to play South Panola, MS this year but Coach Castle had to turn them down in favor of the PCC game in WVa., so he passed along the info. to one of his former assistants who took the challenge!

    Anonymous said...

    I live in SC and let me tell the prep nation the truth about Clinton. Clinton has a good ball club and program. But! Clinton is not even close to being on Byrnes Level. Clinton is not even the 20th best team in SC. SC teams that are better than Clinton are: Byrnes

    Gaffney,Dorman,Rockhill,Northwestern,Daniel,Southpoint,Union County,Marlboro County,Sumter,Berkley,Conway,Beaufort,Myrtle Beach,Cheraw,Blythewood,Blue Ridge,Richland Northeast,Wilson,Westside,Dillon,Summerville and thats not all. All of these teams are better than Clinton or they would be hard pressed to find a win out of all these teams. I just scratch my head wondering why a Clinton fan thinks Byrnes is scared to play his team.

    Anonymous said...

    Byrnes has declined three invitations to play or scrimmage Clinton. Byrnes would surley lose to Clinton as they have in the past.The Clinton Red DEvils has the highest winning percentage in the state of South Carolina. Byrnes has just had a few years of winning were as Clinton wins an average of ten games a year and has been doing it for over thirty-five years. They have 7 State Titles, 17 Upper Sate titles and over 35 Region titles. Did I mention that THe Clinton Red Devils of South Carolina has a seven to one game lead over Byrnes and that the Clinton Red Devils of South Carolina holds a 4-0 record on Byrnes own home field. Thanks,Bobby B.

    FORK BYRNES!

    In response to your answer, The Red Devils were ranked 8th in the Nation and when the season was over that same year they were still ranked. Unlike Byrnes who was ranked and fell out of the rankings by season's end. Yes, I would play Pahokke rather than those Clinton Red DEvils, because of past history the Byrnes Rebels have been whooped bad by the Clinton Red Devils of South Carolina. Yes sir,I would avoid those Mighty Red Devils also. If I were winning the 4A sub Div.II title each year I wouldn't want to play and lose to a small 3A team either. It would look bad as it has for over 27 years on Byrnes record.
    THe Red Devils of Clinton, SC has been a FORK in our sides for years.
    Please coach Miller don't play them.

    I have read all this crapp about Byrnes and frankly I am sick and tired of it. Teams such as Clinton Red Devils have earned more respect than what is being given here on this board and others. The Clinton Red Devils have been in the lime light for decades, and the Byrens Rebels have just recently been winning. National Champions you will never, be rebs. You can not even hold a national ranking for the entire year(fear the spear} as the Clinton Red Devils have, Again you Rebels are whishing once again. You only wish you can be as Great as the Clinton Red Devils. AN old saying is "To be the Man , you must beat the Man." We all know the Byrnes Rebels have not accomplished that feat. So continue on in the weakess region in all classification in South Carolina. You are playing many teams that never beat the Mighty Red Devils of Clinton, S.C.,i.e.
    Mauldin, Boiling Springs, Dorman,Irmo amd Clover, once in 19 tries.

    Clinton blah F'n blah... this is 2008 not the 70's or 80's... Heck, I've never heard of Clinton SC the football team... can't be that great...

    You Brynes fans need to forget about St.X... it will NEVER happen... choose someone else like the Dreadnaughts...

    So far Byrnes has played 2 Florida teams... 1 with success over the past and 1 that was a waste of your boosters money...

    Should have got Pahokee last year but then you would have got hammered... Pahokee this year, you should win and Lincoln... another waste of your boosters money IMO...

    Byrnes needs to seek out one of these teams for future consideration... Lakeland, Armwood or STA... their coaching staffs are the best in Florida...

    They don't chase rabbits and are not the most talented teams (well except for STA) but they are definitely well coached and it shows...

    Dade County has always had the talent and always will but you don't see Legendary coaches coming out of Dade...

    I respect Byrnes for scheduling teams like they do... maybe you'll get SLC in Dallas next year... they should be back to full speed or darn near it...

    If you guys go undefeated you'll get my vote for National Champs... GOOD LUCK!!!

    I hope we lose at least six games this year just to stop all this nonsense. I have been told by a good source that we have been recruiting and practicing illegally. If so I do hope we lose.

    I have been reading some of this crap on here about The Clinton Red Devils of South Carolina and I must say I have been following South Carolina High Schools for over forty years as a Sports writer. Not taking anything from the Byrnes Rebels, but the Red Devils are far a better class of team than the Byrnes Rebels. Clinton has been in the thick of things for years and have only missed the playoffs twice in over thirty five years. Byrnes has just recently started to become a force to reckoned with , while the Red Devils are a force every year. As a sports writer you must be bias in your writing and I feel I have been my entire career.The Red Devils have tried as many as three times to reschedule the Rebels of Duncan South Carolina, but have been turned down all three times. True, the Devils have not won the Big Dance lately, but they have been there fourteen times and brought the Gold home seven times. Byrnes is still just learning how to win, the Devils on the other hand win over ten games a season and are still feared by ALL teams they play or played such as Byrnes, Mauldin, Riverside, Boiling Springs, Dorman, Woodruff, Greer, Union, Hanna, Greenville, Irmo and many more. So you can try to bad mouth ALL you won't too, but just try and play them, The Clinton Red Devils are known to walk the Talk and do all their talking on the field be it their field or yours.

    Clinton is a Fork in the Rebels side. They just can not get over the fact that the Clinton Red Devils have punished them seven times to their one. You can make all the esxcuses you want, the Devils still owns the town of Duncan. If the Devils even drop to 2A, which I predict will happen, the Devils will still stomp the Byrnes Rebels even on Nixon-Devil field.

    Playing the Red Devils in a scrimmage will not hurt your precious points system, but it will hurt your BUTTS!

    Good comment, their excuse not to play during the season is the points, but if they are going to win all the games, why does the points matter? Seeding position shouldn't matter if you are going to say you are going all the way.Right? As far as a scrimmage they are still chicken to even scrimmage the Mighty Red Devils, they may get hurt said one coach. He said they were not a "In the trenches type team" and he would not put his players in that situation. Dang Rebels still running from the Devils and have been for over twenty years.

    TO THE HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL NATION.
    A TRUE STORY ABOUT BYRNES HIGH SCHOOL OF SOUTH CAROLINA:

    Legend has it that a town in South Carolina is cursed by one team and cannot shake the curse.
    The curse ran as long or longer than one that was put on the Boston Red Sox. The curse started back in 1931 and still is active today. The towns people make a lot of excuses to their children and grand children as why the town is hexed with such a dilemma. Even now as the town has been winning a few football games and titles, the curse always haunts them. Durning a town meeting this was noted: "We can win every game and every state title, one man said, but until we break the curse nothing else matters." "I am tired of making excuses to my children and grandchildren one old man replied." "It's shameful we let it go this long another man quoted." "I guess it because of the number 13 one lady replied." Thirteen is the number of times the curse has been attempted to be removed said the mayor." "Six times we were unsuccessful on our on land replied the preacher." We have put our best men on the line and have came up short twelve times.
    We have avoided this thing for years and it still haunts us said a school teacher." "We must redeem ourselves and retake our town one man shouted." "We have ran from this thing long enough, we must try to take back our dignity shouted another person" "All the trophies and rings will not remove the curse that has been places upon us, we must retaliate."

    Did you know that the town is Duncan S.C and the curse is THE MIGHTY CLINTON RED DEVILS of Clinton , S.C. Did you know that Clinton has beat the town of Duncan 12 times and 7 of those wins have been on Duncan soil. Did you know that the Red Devil hold a seven game win streak on the fields of Duncan. The Curse continues until the day it is broken and the Rebels schedule a game or scrimmage and wins.

    The Ghost of the Red Devils is still ALIVE and well.

I remember when it was hard enough to beat greer and if you go way back even woodruff was a huge rivalry. BUT that doesnt mean nor do any good for teams that play the rebels now. They arent unbeatable by any means but clinton just doesnt stack up at all and its not just against the rebels. So to get this over with i think its in everyones best interest to not respond to this guy anymore. He only talks crap to get attention and he knows there wont ever really be a game i mean come on its just not going to happen and he is going to hide behind that to say whatever he wants about HISTORY instead of realizing the present.

    Being from SC, the truth is 20+ years ago Byrnes was Div.3A and yes Clinton was a power house football program, Clinton is still Div.3A, and Byrnes has moved into the 4A Div. Clinton cant win a state championship if was mail to the school before the season even started. Byrnes is a National Power, Clinton is not even a state power. Why this subject was brought up im not sure, but it would be hopeless for clinton, its always nise to dream.

    Folks the bottom line is Byrnes is afraid of this snall 3A school called Clinton Red Devils in South Carolina. The easiest thing in the world is to come on a message board a say what you might can do, Hell prove it, the Red Devils did. Seven times they stompped the Rebels. You can say all you want what you may or may not can do, but proven it , well thats another thing. RIGHT? Devils are Yo Daddy Byrnes so get over it!!!!!

    We have looked into the History of Clinton Red Devils, and James F. Byrnes Rebels, and what we have found is Clinton plays a very week program year after year, this seems to be why they have a winning record most years, on the other hand, Byrnes playes a much harder season year after year, and also has a winning record. So by the numbers, Clinton would not be where they are in the 3A Div. if they played the same teams in the same Div. as Byrnes. If Clinton wants respect for the record they have now, then they need to have a few more state championships in the future, and not stand on a record from years in the past. We have found that Byrnes is a great football program not only in the state of SC but also in the Nation and that is why they look to be at our #1 National Ranking for the 2008 season. Thanks

    Riverside
    Boiling Springs

    How many of those teams are now in Byrnes schedule this year?
    Boiling Springs, Mauldin, Riverside have never beat Clinton, Clinton has beat Clover 17-2, Byrnes 7-1, Woodruff 45-20,Y ork 30 -10 so I would say Byrnes has the cake-walk schedule.

    You got that right! Facts are Facts. The Facts are the Clinton Red Devils have stompped the town of Duncan, SC. tweleve times to their one and four times in a row on their own field that is the facts. As far as rankings, rankings don't win ballgames. The Clinton Red Devils of S.C. and the Gaffney Indians of S.C. has proved that to the Byrnes Rebels.

    And Thank you for proving the point that ratings mean nothing. These are the years of the 1-7 record the Rebels continue to downplay because now they are a superpower but according to rankings they have alway been better on paper than the Devils but not on the playing field where Clinton holds the 7-1 lead. That must be why they play the games.

    You can sleep better now that you know the real facts and truth.

    After reading this above ignorant
    comment I had to respond. I have been reading these blogs for days now. It would appear to me that the comments by the people from this place called Clinton have a legitimate cause. After doing some research on my own, I have found that the Devils of this small town win their region over 90% of the time and a 100% when Byrnes was in their region. I have also realized this small school has won an average of ten games a season for over a thirty-five year span and that in itself is outstanding. It would stand to reason that Byrnes would want to play such a powerhouse such as these Red Devils. So I too have to ask: Why aren't the Byrnes Rebles playing Clinton? Why are you afraid to have a rematch with them? Why not settle this once and for all. I have to agree with most of the post about Clinton, they do hold the upper hand on you Byrnes. Seven games to one is devastating record to have on a national rank team, even if it is in the past as most of you claim. Hell Clinton cannot make you play them. I guess I would be skeptical too if I were Byrnes. Byrnes you need to regain your pride and respect in your own state before you worry about teams outside your borders. Overlooking the Red Devils will always be a thorn in your side. Man up and play them again before you fall from glory.

    All you need to know is the Devils of Clinton SC will always be in front of the Rebels until the series is reversed. Fork Byrnes!

    Clinton vs Byrnes

    Clinton 22 Byrnes 0 ( Clinton won Upper State & Region)
    Clinton 12 Byrnes 7 (Clinton won Upper State & Region)
    Clinton 06 Byrnes 14 {Clinton won State)
    Clinton 09 Byrnes 07 (Clinton won Region)
    Clinton 28 Byrnes 00 (Clinton went undefeated won State & Region)
    Clinton 23 Byrnes 07
    Clinton 27 Byrnes 14 (Won Region)

    Clinton won 4 Upper State titles 2 State Titles
    and 6 Region titles during that 7 game series with Byrnes. AWESOME DEVILS.

    After ALL that the Rebels refuse to play because of the points system, heck they will not even scrimmage.

    Note: The year that the Devils did happen to lose to Byrnes because of the Refs or maybe it was the rain, the Devils went on to win State.

    Being my name has been listed on this board,Rebel82jeff, This will be my first post here. Let me just say Clinton has a very good Football Program, year after year they end up in the top of the class 3AAA in South Carolina, This year should be a great year for Clinton, they should be State Champs, in the 3AAA Div.
    As for Byrnes they also have one of the best Football Programs in the Nation. Not only in Class 4AAAA, but all Div. across the Nation. This year will be a true test of how good the Byrnes Rebels can be, with 4 out of state game with top teams in the Nation.
    I wish Clinton all the best in 08, there fans are great. But everyone in SC knows Clinton would be no match for Byrnes, it would not be good for the Clinton Program, and the young men that play for Clinton, Thats why the Couch and Staff at Clinton turned down the offer to play Byrnes at the Byrnes jamboree. It would not benefit ether program, and Clinton has a great chance of winning the 3AAA state this year, there was no reason for Clinton to take the chance on getting hurt at the start of the 08 season.
    Byrnes is the team to watch in o8!!! PrepNation and MaxPrep put Byrnes in the top 3 teams in the Nation (Pre Season Rankings) Go Rebels!!! Rebel82jeff

S.C. teams should hold a two venue games with the upper state Byrnes, Gaffney and Dorman playing N.C. teams as in Independence, Charlotte Christian and Shelby. Lower state teams Summerville, Irmo and Aiken VS Georgia teams as in North Gwinnett, Northside (Warner Robbins) and Lowndes. SC fans need to push for this! We have GREAT HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL in SC!

    My name is Ben Overton admin. of the South Carolina Prep Football message boad. These lie on here about Clinton should be stopped. The only team to turn down a scrimmage or Jamboree is the Byrnes High School Rebels. I have already quoted one Byrnes coach onnce before. he said" We will not put out players in harms way, Clinton is tough in the treches and we cannot afford to get our players hurt. We are a run & catch type team, not a in the treches type. The Red Devils will pound you and pound you. They are known to hurt players." Xcoach B. Bently also declind to play the Red Devils as he watch them practice for four years while attendin Presbyterian College locate only two miles from the college. He said he wanyed to be like the Red Devils, but add more passing to the game. end of that story. So instead of ALL you Chicken chitt Rebels telling lies, why not line up against those Mighty Devils and play some Red Devils HARD CORE Football? You need to stop avoiding the Devils and play them and that will settle it all. Put it on the line and see who gets knocked off. Devils 7 Byrnes 1

    Heres the lies by Burns:

    I wish Clinton all the best in 08, there fans are great. But everyone in SC knows Clinton would be no match for Byrnes, it would not be good for the Clinton Program, and the young men that play for Clinton, Thats why the Couch and Staff at Clinton turned down the offer to play Byrnes at the Byrnes jamboree.{JUST A LIE)It would not benefit ether program, and Clinton has a great chance of winning the 3AAA state this year, there was no reason for Clinton to take the chance on getting hurt at the start of the 08 season.
    Byrnes is the team to watch in o8!!! PrepNation and MaxPrep put Byrnes in the top 3 teams in the Nation (Pre Season Rankings) Go Rebels!!! Rebel82jeff

    Byrnes is number 10 on the ScPrep List.

    Okay let me kill this crazy talk about Clinton and Byrnes. I played at Clinton and lived there my entire until I left for college. Clinton back in the day was a great team but with time things change. I now live in Duncan where my sons live and play. I have never seen high school football on this level. It would be a risk to hurt star studded players scrimmaging Clinton. Lets celebrate the state and what Byrnes has accomplished. Go Rebels from a former Red Devil.

    Seriously though... what is the 'outlook' on Pahokee???

    Number of returning starters??? Offense??? Defense???

    How many kids dress for a game???

    The video of the 'Muck Bowl' didn't show a lot of kids!!!

    Byrnes is a large school and has a lot of kids dressed and this game is @ Byrnes...

    Pahokee looks to be a lot better coached than Glades Central was, that's for sure...

    With better coaching (someone able to adjust and/or make necessary changes) and GC beats Brynes back then!!!

    That display of poor coaching gave Florida a big black eye...
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________

    How's Lincoln looking this year as well???

    Byrnes has definitely stepped it up a notch or two above Dr. Phillips but will either team be Florida's best for 2008???

    Pahokee has entrenched itself in greatness the last 5 years in a smaller classification while Lincoln has been up and down in 4A...

    We all had hope with GC but those hopes were shattered with the poor coaching and only a few gave Dr. Phillips a chance at all in the first place...
    ________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Byrnes has struggled against decent OOS teams in the past and is yet to score a victory over an elite team from another state...

    Byrnes is headed to Dallas next year to face ???

    I don't know of anything on Lakeland's plate for 2009 yet, so if Byrnes would like to play Lakeland PLEASE let me know... and let me know all the financial ins and outs... TIA

    Again I have to agree with the above statement. You would get those Byrnes players hurt scimmaging Clinton. No need to get those Blue Bellies Hurt scrimmaging the Mighty Devils.If you played for Clinton as you say you did, you know thats true. You say you never seen High School football on that level, then you didn't play for Clinton and the Greatest Coach of ALL time CW.

    I will put this to rest. I played for Byrnes High school back in the seventies. I was fortunate to get to play the Clinton Red Devils three times. I have to say those Devils were tough back then and would kick your butt all over the field. They would never let up. By the time the fourth quarter rolled around they would have pounded us to no end. The Devils always had a way of getting up for big games even when they were the underdogs. So I am not so sure they wouldn't be victorious over us today. At least give us a heck of a game. Never count those Clinton Red Devils out, I have seen them do remarkable things on the field of football.

    In regard to your post about ScPrep Board, let me get one thing straight. The Board is recognized
    by many High School football fans of South Carolina. The point we are making is anyone can have a poll or ranking, and Rankings don't mean a thing and don't win ball games.

    ScPrep is a message board is for All fans, IT IS a non-bias message board. I cannot help who signs up.
    You are another Byrnes fan that loves to make excuses instead of facing the real facts. Another lie you are telling is that Coach A.B. Young voted, knowing him as I do I don't think so, he has more class than that. He has more to do and take care of than to vote or even read these boards. So again it's another lie by a fan that cannot take the facts and the fact is Byrnes is making more excuses to try to down play the Clinton Red Devils and not wanting to play or even scrimmage them. It is of my opinion that Byrnes is scared that a small 3A team will dominate them as they have in the past. Man up and play ball with the Devils. So I suggest to you not to troll my post, you know me by name and my address, Who are you and why are you hiding behind a screen name? Are you ashamed to associated with Byrnes knowing what the Mighty Red Devils have done to them over the years? Go teams!! (except byrnes)

    Not heard of Clinton,SC then you must still be in diapers. Clinton was Ranked as high as 8 in the USA High School polls long before all these others came along. Clinton was and still is feared by ALL South Carolina teams. You don't play over a 1000 games and have a winning percentage of .701 and not be known. You don't win an average of 10 games a year for the last thirty five years and not be at the top. So if you are a Byrnes fan, you keep running, maybe one day we will meet again and shut you up as we always have. If you are the town of Duncan. SC it stands Clinton, SC 12 wins Duncan, SC 1. "Clinton is a thorn in our side". quoted by J.F. Byrnes during his meetings in Columbia SC.

    My response to the above lies:

    Again this Byrnes person loves to twist the truth, Mr. Byrnes said this during the time that Clinton Red Devils beat the School called Duncan. As I quoted "Mr. Byrnes said that Clinton has been a thorn in the side of Duncan" I did NOT SAY BYRNES. Clinton had a five game win streak on the town of DUNCAN when Mr. Byrnes was quoted this in Columbia.
    1931, 1932, 1934,1935, 1938 are the years the streak was on the town of Duncecan.

    So once again you twist the facts to suit yourself as you Byrnes people do. You just can't handle the true facts. So if you accuse me of something don't use lies to do so, try if you can use the real facts! Blocked for what? Telling the truth? I don't think so, you should be banned for telling lies on this Great National Board.
    Beware posters the truth hurts the Duncan and Byrnes people.
    Clinton five wins on Duncan SC, has seven wins on Byrnes, that's a total 12-1 wins on the town of Duncan, Go Devils!!!!

BTW, I just found out that Byrnes was invited to play Clinton in a Jamboree this year and declined once again. What does that tell you about the "Real" Byrnes? There was no conflict in the schedules either! Just ask Miller.

    If a coach is reading a message board, then he isn't much of a coach. A true coach doesn't have time for all this crap. As far as being in the National spot light as you call it, the Devils were there long before the Rebels were even winning. As of now the Red Devils of Clinton South Carolina win an average of 10 games every season and have been doing so for the last 35 years in a row. Bet there is not a handfull of teams in the Nation that can say that. Here is an example of another team the Red Devils have dominated over the years as they have Byrnes in South Carolina.
    Total dominated by the Devils! Red Devil"HARD CORE" Football.

    Clover High vs the Red Devils of SC

    1972 Clover 7 Clinton 14 (State Champs)
    1973 Clover 0 Clinton 6 (Upper State Champs}
    1974 Clover 0 Clinton 21 (Upper state Champs)
    1975 Clover 7 Clinton 27 (State Champs)
    1982 Clover 0 Clinton 12 (Region Champs)

    So you can take all you want about national power and whom you played, but when you talk "REAL" High School Football you just can not talk it without talking about the Clinton Red Devils of Clinton South Carolina.

    So hold on tight when you get caught and the wheels fall off!

    CHEATERS never WIN and WINNERS never CHEAT! It took Byrnes thirty years to get to the level of many schools in SC. The winning streak is just about to end! And no one will remember the Byrnes Rebels. Byrnes Who?

    Byrnes ranked 10th by ESPN. Byrnes (Duncan, S.C.) That's about right, all the rest have been winning for years and years. Byrnes has just been on a streak for a couple of years and that's fixing to flop. They have been practicing indoors and will soon get caught at it, even the recruiting they are doing is wrong. They have too many ball players living outside their district also. The SCHSL needs to enfource the rules on Byrnes!

    Breaking News on Byrnes High School in Duncan South Carolina.
    Several schools are being looked at for violating player to player contact set forth by the South Carolina High School League. Byrnes is one of them. Greer High School located just a few miles from Byrnes has already been put on probation. They can have no scrimmages, no Jamboree participation and no post games this year. Of course all of this will be appealed on Monday the 11th. Keep your ears open.

    LOL I have a dead uncle curied in Clinton, was a life time resident and fan, I bet he remembers the PAST too! He was at every game and I would bet if he was still here and upright he would find the Clinton loudmouth and tell him how much he was embarrasing the Clinton, town, players, coaches, and decent fans that understand their limitations. Hope he don't get up one night and come call you on some of it, LOL

    He was a Clinton fan, but did understand things change and mostly he understood football!

    Come visit the RED ZONE of Clinton and get you some! When you leave you will "C-Red". Some teams from time to time may luck out and beat the Devils, but Byrnes won't!

    Byrnes Who? The fall was greater than the fall of Humpty Dumpty!
    The Byrnes Rebels will never be heard from again from the National Spotlight. It's all over for the Byrnes Rebels of DUNCEcan, South Carolina.

    The Dream turned into a Nightmare!
    At the next game after the loss the stands were less than half full. I guess the fans were out Tricker Treating.

    Well, Well, Well after just two years of D1 football former high school Head coach Bobby Bentley quits his head coaching job at Presbyterian College in Clinton S.C. He let his own players and college down. After two years and a combine losing record, Bentley was made a job back at Dist 5 High School as county wide AD. He will also become the OC of his old high school team the Byrnes Rebels in Duncan, S.C. I wonder how the head coach (Miller) feels about that decision? Once again, Clinton was untamed by a Byrnes Rebel. The town Clinton, S.C. again proved too tough even for the old head coach from Byrnes High who had four state titles under his belt.
    Bentley did his recruits, coaches and college down by doing this just 29 days before signing day.
    Bentley said when he took the College job, this is what he was living and coaching for. Well I guess he just will fade away, since he could not cut it at the college level.Bye, Bye Bentley Good Bye! Bentley failed as a College coach and he also failed the players,team and staff!
    Bobby who?

    How true. Bentley should be kicked out of coaching, HE IS A QUITTER!

    The story on Byrnes is you left out the fact there is a small 3A school just 30 miles away from Byrnes that has beat them seven times out of eight several years back. Byrnes has turned down even scrimmaging the small school numerous times much less wanting to play them again. Miller chickened out last year at a chance to play Clinton in Clinton's Jamboree. They (Byrnes) should be called the Blue Chickens. The small 3A team holds a 4 game win streak on their on Nixon field. Did I mention that the school I am talking about is the Clinton Red Devils of South Carolina. This small school has been winning an average of ten games a season for over thirty-five years. OUTSTANDING feat I might add. So, I challenge the Byrnes Rebels to come get you some, the Red Devils are ready and back down from no team. The way to beat Byrnes is to interrupt their timing, bump the ends and WR's and knock the running backs on their butts.

    Once again the Byrnes Rebels choked! This past Oct 2, 09 Burns was ranked number 2 in the nation and choked. The burns rebels got knocked on their butts time and time again! Leason learned should be stay at home, you cannot play with the big boys just because you are beating teams in such a weak region. I also believe that B.Bentley had a hand in this loss.

    What a thread.im not even a byrnes fan.but theres no doubt they are the best program in s.c.right now.there are two teams that have a outside shot at playing with them this year.a slim chance for rockhill and a even slimmer chance for dorman.there is talent all over the state.but no ones coaches are maximizing it like they do.as for the obvious joke about clinton handling byrnes.clinton cant even handle there own region.ill take the top 25 s.c.teams after byrnes in 4aaaa over clinton any day of the week.as for byrnes vs sta. byrnes lost yes but they played a very good game.

    Well, Well Well. Looks like the DOrman Cavs kicked some Byrnes butt in the State Championship game! Too bad the Cavs had a slim chance. Oh by the way, The Clinton Red Devils won thier class State Game. Byrnes is a hasbeen, the recruiting is way down in Duncan SC for Byrnes.
