Florence, S.C. -Despite an overall record of 2-5 the Florence Christian School Eagles of Coach Neil Minton is still in the picture of a good SCISA playoff seed for Class AA.   The Eagles currently have a Region 2-AA record of 2-1 with region games left with Spartanburg Christian, Robert E. Lee and Augusta Christian.   They only loss in region has been to Trinity-Byrnes.

                “Right now, we are in pretty good shape health wise,” said Coach Minton.  “We are a young team that is still learning under fire.  It will be a big bonus if we can get a #2 or #3 seed in the playoffs.  It will be a great bonus if we can get a playoff game at home.  With only four seniors this year the Eagles will be battle tested and eager for 2018.”

                Last week the Eagles won their second game of the season over Thomas Sumter Academy 35-20.  Eli Brayboy (jr) led the attack with 267 yards rushing on 32 rushes for two touchdown runs of 3 and 58 yards.  Marshall Brown (fr) rushed 24 times for 133 yards and a touchdown run of 5 yards.

                Also scoring for the Eagles was Nick Wood (sr) on a 1- yard run and Jack McFadden (so) on an 11- yard reception from Wood.  Preston Miles (jr) kicked three PATs.

                Quarterback Wood has led the Eagle offense this season completing 48 of 95 passes for 542 yards  for 4 touchdowns.  He has rushed 40 times for 91 yards and 4 touchdowns.

                The top three targets for Wood on the pass routes has been Brown, McFadden and Luke Godbold (so).   Brown has 17 receptions for 202 yards.  McFadden has 12 receptions for 152 yards and a touchdown.  Godbold has 12 receptions for 108 yards and a touchdown.

                Brown leads the rushing game with 118 carries for 869 yards and 10 touchdowns.  Brayboy has 110 carries for 761 yards and 7 touchdowns.  Then comes Wood with his 91 yards.   Brown also has 293 yards in returns and Brayboy has 121 return yards.

                Zack Edwards (jr) has led the defense with 49 tackles followed by Brown with 43.  Phillip Hucks (so), Jackson Gray (fr), George Rishmawi (so) and Alex Rishmawi follow with 38, 34,34 and 31 tackles.  Timothy Smalls (jr) and Khalil Barcus (sr) follow with 26 each.
