Seahawks, Bobcats rev up for shootout at Doug Shaw

Once again, Myrtle Beach is the only local school still playing on the gridiron while all the others are already hitting the hardwood.

However, the Seahawks’ third-round playoff game against Bluffton may more closely resemble a basketball game instead of football, at least on the scoreboard.

The two-time defending Class AAA state champion Seahawks (11-1) and the undefeated Bobcats (12-0) feature two of the most prolific offenses in South Carolina football.

Despite the loss of four-year starting quarterback Everett Golson, the Seahawks’ spread offense is averaging 35 points per game this season. Impressive, until you see the Bobcats are putting up more than 61 points per game.

Myrtle Beach has replaced Golson with the two-man rotation of C.J. Cooper and Tyler Keane, who have combined to throw for 2,927 yards and 42 touchdowns to only five interceptions this season.

The Bobcats, led by starting quarterback C.J. Frazier, have about 200 fewer passing yards than the Seahawks two-QB tandem but has thrown 45 TDs to only three interceptions.

The Seahawks’ leading receiver is Tramond Wilson, who has 37 catches for 742 yards and 14 TDs. Myrtle Beach features three more receivers – Trell Harrell, Jaquan Wilson and Daquarius Wilson, with more than 400 yards receiving apiece and 21 combined touchdowns.

Bluffton, led by Dimitri Lowry, boasts a trio of receivers who have the Bobcats averaging more than 247 completion yards per game. Like the Seahawks, their running backs also serve as huge passing threats out of the backfield.

Behind leading rusher Eric Boyles, Bluffton also averages more than 181 rushing yards per game and has scored 35 TDs on the ground. Myrtle Beach is producing fewer than 70 yards per game and has only nine rushing TDs this season.

Perhaps the best measuring stick for the two teams is common opponents. Bluffton blew out Hilton Head Island 76-0 in the season opener and 58-6 during the regular season, while the Seahawks took a 64-16 win in the first round of the playoffs. The Seahawks shut out Georgetown 42-0 during the season while the Bobcats blasted Georgetown 69-29 in last week’s playoff game.

Oh yeah, Bluffton also carries a statistical edge on defense. The Seahawks have allowed 139 points this season, or about 11 points per game. Bluffton has given up only 83, or less than a TD per game, but neither defense has faced a prolific offense like they will see Friday.

It all adds up to a high-flying, high-scoring contest of basketball on grass when the two teams square off at Doug Shaw Memorial Stadium. May the last team to score win.
