We’re down to four teams in the Class 4A Lower State playoffs, and that means a match-up between region champions is here.

Region V-4A’s North Augusta (5-1 overall) heads to Little River to take on Region VI-4A champ North Myrtle Beach (7-0) on Friday in the second round. The winner will advance to Lower State finals. These four players are ones we’ll be keeping a close eye on this week.

AUSTIN HARRELL, QB, NORTH AUGUSTA

This offense actually runs the football more than you’d think given the initial yardage differences between the two schemes, but Harrell’s efficiency is a big reason why the passing situations have been so worthwhile. The 5-foot-10 junior has completed 64 percent of his passes for 1,498 yards and six touchdowns. 

MARRIUNTI BOYD, LB, NORTH AUGUSTA

At 6-foot-1 and 235 pounds, looks every bit like the prototypical linebacker. But a big reason the Yellow Jackets have limited opponents to fewer than 13 points per game in 2020 is because he produces like one, too. Boyd averages 10 tackles per game. He’s also put up three tackles for loss, three sacks, two deflected passes and a quarterback hurry. 

CHANDLER MCCALL, DB, NORTH MYRTLE BEACH
