Greer High’s 2017 football team can celebrate a season of remarkable accomplishments, but there is no looking back for Head Coach Will Young. He refuses to speculate if this team has been his best ever, saying, “I don’t put a lot of stock in making comparisons. I do think this group really did a good job.

The Greer offense could not hang with South Pointe, falling behind 33-0 before halftime. The Yellow Jackets scored three times in the third, but the defense was unable to record enough stops to keep Greer in the game.

Two failures ended Greer High’s stellar football season Friday night. The Yellow Jackets offense failed to play a mistake-free game, and the defense had no answer for Derion Kendrick, the top rated player in South Carolina. That added up to a 67-21 debacle that sent undefeated South Pointe sprinting into the state finals against Hartsville.
