Prep Profile: Barnwell Warhorses

  • Follow High school

Coach: Edward Moore (1st year)

Region: Region 5-AA

Last year: 2-8 (2-3 in Region 5-AA)

Starters back: 4 offense, 4 defense

Key returners: DL Sammy Murray (Sr., 6-1, 205), LB Kevin Washington (Sr., 5-11, 195), WR/DB Pat Green (Sr., 6-2, 175), QB Tyler Davis (Sr., 5-10, 175)

Key games: Aug. 20 at Blackville-Hilda, Aug. 27 vs. Williston-Elko, Oct. 29 at Silver Bluff

Glass half full: Moore takes over for Joey Still, who resigned in early 2010. The Warhorses had to forfeit two games last year because of using an ineligible player, and Moore will be working hard to revive enthusiasm in the program.

Glass half empty: The Warhorses didn't qualify for last year's playoffs, but should be able to contend for a spot this year. Early games against county rivals Blackville-Hilda and Williston-Elko could set the tone.
