When Jamar McKoy was the head football coach at Hunter Huss High School in Gastonia, N.C., he sent several players to the ACC.
McKoy knows a potential FBS player when he coaches one, and the veteran coach thinks he’s got a special player in James Island wide receiver Wushi Ravenel.
Ravenel caught four passes for 119 yards and two touchdowns and running back Amor “Tank” Scott added 101 rushing yards and another score to lead James Island past May River, 34-7, at The Backyard on James Island.
The Trojans (6-1, 1-0 in Region 7-AAAA) dominated from the opening kickoff, scoring touchdowns on its first two offensive plays and never looked back. The Sharks fell to 2-5, 1-1.
Ravenel, a 6-0, 170-pound junior, is considered one of the elite wide receivers in the Lowcountry and did nothing to tarnish that reputation against the Sharks.
“Wushi is a dude,” McKoy said. “I’d put him up against anyone in the state. I know a dude when I see one and he’s a dude. I’ve coached four dudes that are playing in the ACC right now and he’s right up there with them. Wushi has all the tools to play at the next level.”
While no one is confusing Ravenel with former James Island star and NFL All-Pro wide receiver Roddy White just yet, the comparisons will come soon.
“Everyone knows who Roddy White is around here,” Ravenel said. “He’s the best that’s ever played here and I want to follow in his footsteps.”
The Trojans took control of the game on the first play from scrimmage. What started out as a routine toss play to Tykell Maxwell turned into a 45-yard halfback option pass to a wide open Ravenel just 19 seconds into the game.
“May River is very aggressive defensively and we wanted to take advantage of that,” McKoy said. “We felt like that play had a chance on the first play because they’d be coming after us.”
After a three and out defensively, the Trojans took over at the Sharks 9-yard line when the ball was snapped over the punter’s head.
One play later, Junior Maxwell bulled his way into the end zone and a quick 14-0 lead less than two minutes into the game.
“This is a big win for us, a statement win,” McKoy said. “We’ve been looking for a statement win like this all season. We got off to a great start. I wish we had a played a little better in the second half, but it’s a win and that’s all that matters.”
Scott, a 6-0, 220-pound sophomore, gave the Trojans a 20-0 lead with his 8-yard TD run with less than three minutes left in the opening quarter.
Scott finished with 102 yards on 13 attempts.
James Island quarterback Liam Nixon was efficient throwing the ball during the game, completing 9 of 12 passes for 154 yards.
Amontrae Scott gave the Trojans a 27-0 lead early in the second quarter.
“We try to be a balanced offense,” McKoy said. “We want a 50-50 split with run-to-pass ratio. I think we’re about 60 percent run. Liam did job running the offense tonight.”
The Trojans defense gave up a single TD to the Sharks and has allowed just 41 points all season.
“They played lights out,” McKoy said. “They gave up one tonight, but it’s hard to score against those guys. The defensive staff has those guys primed and ready to every week.”

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — The 33rd Holiday Festival of Lights is back and as bright as ever.
It features over 2 million lights and more than 700 displays.
Guests are invited to drive along a three-mile stretch of colorful blinking bulbs and get out of the car for more holiday experiences.
"There's two areas in the park, Winter Wonderland and Santa's Village, and there's a lot more to see in those areas such as gift shops, Santa will be here in a few weeks. We have marshmallow roasting, food, all kinds of other great things that you have to experience while you're here," said Sarah Reynolds, Public Information Coordinator for Charleston County Parks.
Reynolds says almost 6 million people have come to the event since it opened in 1989.
She says it takes the staff more than an hour to turn on the displays.
"We have some really unique light displays, and you know, some iconic Charleston imagery that are reflected in the light displays here. So it's a really beautiful, really amazing event to drive through," Reynolds said.
Many people say they were ready to get into the holiday spirit. That’s why they attended this season’s debut.
"Every year is something different, and it just always makes people so happy," returning visitor Alexandra Yakobleba said.
Parks and recreation officials say there are more lights this year and you can buy tickets to see the displays from a dragon boat tour.
You get to dry you get to paddle next to like some of the light displays and so it's a really unique opportunity to see those light displays up close," Reynolds said.
Tickets can be bought online in advance or at the gate.
But they’ll be slightly more expensive on busier evenings.
"We have identified peak nights and regular nights at the Festival of Lights. So if you come on a regular night, you're going to be paying a lower admission rate for your vehicle. So we encourage everyone to check out our website, check out the calendar and try to come on a regular night if you can. And we're also offering advance ticket purchases so you don't have to buy your ticket at the gate," Reynolds said.
"Whoever is seeing this, you have got to come out here," Yakobleba said.
If you didn't make it opening night, the festival will be open each night from 5:30 to 10 p.m. through December 31st.

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - Proposed upgrades to an intersection on James Island appear to be concerning some neighbors.
Charleston County’s recommended plan requires removing two grand oak trees at the intersection of Camp Road and Fort Johnson Road, an act that some James Islanders deem unnecessary.
Tuesday, the James Island Board of Zoning Appeals will meet to review the request to remove the trees.
According to a local advocacy group, they are 150-year-old grand oaks.
The town of James Island said removing the trees is needed in order to move forward with the intersection improvements, one councilman is wondering if there is any way these trees can be saved.
The intersection of Camp Road and Fort Johnson Road is one of the four areas on James Island that Charleston County has determined needs safety improvements. The first two Grand Oaks that line Camp Road are the trees in question.
One proposed plan for the intersection adds a turning lane, taking out many of the trees. But, the option the county recommends is a compact roundabout, only removing two trees.
James Island Councilman Garett Milliken said that’s still too many. He said the trees are perfectly healthy Grand Oaks and taking the first two trees could set the precedent for taking more in the future.
But he acknowledges the intersection improvement project must go forward.
“I believe that both goals can be realized. I do believe that nothing is carved in stone here with respect to the plans. And I feel that if the engineers can find a solution to saving these trees, that solution can carry over to other projects,” Milliken said.
However, James Island Mayor Bill Woolsey, said he disagrees.
He said they will continue to review the intersection with the county, making sure there is no way to avoid taking the trees.
For now, he said he thinks this plan is best for the town.
“This relatively small traffic circle is the best option. And if we have to sacrifice two trees of the over 40 on the road, I just think that is the responsible thing to do,” Woolsey said.
The county provided a statement saying they recommend this option because it saves more trees than the other options they provided and improves the safety of the intersection.
“Charleston County Public Works recommends the construction of an urban compact roundabout at Fort Johnson Road and Camp Road to improve the safety of the intersection. This type of roundabout will save as many Grand Oak trees as possible and require the acquisition of the least amount of right of way,” the County said in a statement.
If you’re interested in sharing your opinion with the town of James Island regarding the intersection plan and tree removal, you can email email@example.com.
Today’s meeting starts at 5 p.m. For a link to the agenda, click here.

James Island crew wins $109K in Kingfish Invitational

Fishermen often announce that they’ve seen color as a hooked fish darts about in the depths below a boat. And that’s exactly what Kenneth Crosby said to fellow “Jon Boat” crew members Jon Vroon and Kenneth Nelson on Nov. 2 as they fished the Hang Em’ High Kingfish Invitational.
Vroon said Crosby yelled out “I’ve got color!” Seconds later he added “We’ve got a lot of color.” In other words, it was a good fish.
Several hours later, after the Jon Boat crew made their way to the weigh station at Skull Creek Boathouse on Hilton Head Island, they found out just how good the fish was.
The king mackerel weighed 50.4 pounds, a tournament record, and the color they saw earlier translated into a lot of green — $109,000 for the heaviest kingfish caught by participants in the Hang Em’ High tournament.
“I’ll be honest. When we got that fish on the deck, we knew it was a bigger-sized fish but we didn’t know it was a 50-pounder,” said Vroon, owner of the 38-foot Edgewater. “We never high-five, but we did just because we knew it was a bigger fish.
“We put the fish in the fish box and were quiet for a while. We didn’t know what we had, but we knew we had something.”
Vroon said they continued to fish after boating the monster, trying to catch another fish to count toward aggregate weight. When that didn’t happen, they pulled the big fish back out and hung it from a Boga Grip to get a weight. The Boga Grip bounced between 48 and 52 pounds, and Vroon said Nelson told him, “We’re going to Hilton Head right now.”
Jon Boat’s catch was the capper to a lucrative late-season run. They missed many of the regular king mackerel tournaments while the boat was being upgraded, including new power. Vroon got the boat back in time for them to fish the South Carolina Fall Classic (scfallclassic.com), a tournament in which participants fish two days of their choosing, weigh two fish each day, and have their three heaviest fish count toward the championship.
During the Fall Classic they weighed four solid fish, all in the 30-pound class, and their 106.8-pound total had them in the lead until a couple of days before the tournament ended, when The Drum brought in a 43.6-pound catch and grabbed first. Jon Boat’s second-place finish netted them $8,000 and the crew decided to participate in the Hang Em’ High tournament.
“We got the boat back and said let’s do everything we can to get in the last few tournaments of the season. We ended up getting in the Fall Classic and ended up second. We thought we had it and at the last minute (The Drum) caught a a beautiful fish and we finished second. It was kind of hard not to sign up for the Hang Em’ High (kingfishinvitational.com) , a 40-boat invitational, when you have house money already,” Vroon said.
The Hang Em’ High tournament, which began in 2021, was conceived by Marc Pincus of Hilton Head; he also runs the S.C. Wahoo Series, the S.C. Mahi Series and the S.C. Fall Classic. Each team pays a $5,000 entry feet with the winner pocketing $100,000.
Robert Olsen of Charleston won the inaugural Hang Em’ High tournament in 2022 with a 43.4-pound catch that was worth $118,900. This year’s tournament was scheduled to be a two-day event with anglers fishing Friday and Saturday (Nov. 4-5) with Wednesday and Thursday (Nov. 2-3) as weather days. But with a northeaster brewing, the tournament became a one-day shootout.
Jon Boat’s 50.4-pound catch was easily the winner.
Second place and $36,000 with a 37.6-pound catch went to Avaseata, captained by Anthony Seminara of Bluffton. Finishing a close third and earning $34,000 was Wreck On, captained by Tyler Smith of Edisto, with a 37.4-pound catch. Pole Dancer, captained by David Hartness of Isle of Palms, rounded out the boats finishing in the money, earning $21,000 with a 33.8-pound king mackerel.
Extra Kristi, captained by Chris Rosengarten of Beaufort, was the first boat out of the money, missing by 0.1 pounds with a 33.7-pound kingfish. Rounding out the top 10 were: Salty Mistress, 32.7; Mas Pescado, 32.1; Rock Doc, 30.9; The Right Side, 29.8; and Prodigy Fishing, 29.6.
Vroon said the Jon Boat crew launched at James Island Yacht Club, where they all are members. They headed to the area where they caught fish in the Fall Classic and began riding around, looking for suspended bait and places that might be holding fish until it was time for lines in the water at 7 a.m.
“We didn’t see a lot. It was a lot different than it had been two weeks earlier (for the Fall Classic). It was kinda’ disappointing at the time, because you take a gamble and risk going to a location that at one time looked good. And we’re going in the opposite direction of where we’re going to weigh in,” Vroon said. He said they picked away at 16-, 17-, 18-pound kingfish, which they released.
“Then out of the blue, the biggest kingfish I’ve ever caught takes line,” Vroon said.
Crosby was closest to the rod, while Vroon was running the boat and Nelson began clearing the other lines.
“Sometimes you can tell by that first run how big a fish is,” Vroon said. “But you can really tell on the second run. Then when he runs again the third time like he ran the first time, you know you’ve got a fish on. We knew we had something, and we were trying to track him down.”
Vroon said even after they they got to Hilton Head and got their official weight, he wasn’t going to assume they had won.
“When you’re fishing against 40 of the best kingfishing guys in the Carolina, you expect that if you caught a 50 then they can catch a 50. That was always in the back of my mind. It wasn’t until the end of the weigh-in and there wasn’t a boat coming down the creek that it set in. Holy Cow! We did it!” he said.
“A tournament like that is life-changing. The camaraderie. The people calling. It’s been incredible, awesome. It may never happen again. We’re trying to take in all in, every moment. I caught the biggest kingfish I’ve ever caught in the biggest tournament I’ve ever entered.”
2023 S.C. Wahoo Series
Tournament director Marc Pincus has announced that the 2023 South Carolina Wahoo Series (scwahooseries.com) will be fished Feb. 17-April 15. The captain’s meeting will be held from 1-4 p.m. Feb. 4 at Skull Creek Dockside Restaurant on Hilton Head Island, with the awards ceremony scheduled April 16.
Participants can fish three days during the tournament, weighing one fish each day, with the aggregate weight of their two heaviest fish counting toward the championship.

Vaughn Blue, Oceanside Collegiate, Football
Back in the lineup after missing six weeks due to injury, the senior tailback ran for 132 yards and a touchdown while also catching 3 passes for 101 yards and a touchdown as the Landsharks rolled past Woodland in the AA playoffs.

Showing what it’s like to be clutch in two different ways, the Appalachian State recruit returned a kickoff 89 yards for a touchdown and had a late interception as Beaufort rallied past Gilbert 31-21 in AAA action.
Rucker Brannon, Hammond School, Football
You can be flashy on defense, too. Brannon had two interceptions, returning one for a touchdown - and handing the ball to his father beyond the back of the end zone - as the Skyhawks claimed their sixth consecutive SCISA state championship with a 52-0 rout of Laurence Manning Academy.
Zavian Brown, Fort Dorchester, Football
