North Augusta, S.C. -The Fox Creek High School Predators hope to improve on their 2016 record of 7-5. This will be the Predators second year in Class 2-A. Last year they finished second in Region 3-AA behind the Saluda Tigers who finished 12-2.

“We will take it one game at a time,” said Coach Derrick Quinn. “We got to stay healthy and learn from our early mistakes. The players are working hard to get better at their positions.”

The Predators opened the 2017 season with a thrilling 27-16 win over the McCormick Chiefs. After falling behind the Predators scored 20 unanswered points to pull out the win.

Cameron Mitchem (jr) led the offense from the quarterback slot and rushed for 175 yards on 18 carries scoring 2 touchdowns from short yardage out. He completed 4 of 12 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown. Peanut Butler (so) made that reception of 47 yards for the touchdown. Dustin Barnes (sr) made 2 catches for 82 yards.

Ryan Chavous (jr) from the running back position had 42 yards on 10 carries. Other running backs for the Predators were Errius Ishmal (jr) and Myles Hammond (jr).

Coach Quinn hopes his defense will be a strong key to success this season. Last week the defense was led by Jaylen Davis and Ishmal with 11 tackles each. Daniel Hane (sr) followed with 10 and a forced fumble. Jarelle Carter (sr) recorded 7 tackles that included 2 sacks and a forced fumble.

Cameron Davis (jr) recorded 7 tackles that included 1 sack and 4 with loss yardage. Terreco Ramage (jr), Tyrell Simmons (sr) and Bryce Ward (jr) each had 5 tackles. Ward also had an interception.

Others with recorded tackles were Kale Green (sr), Dreshon Carter (sr), Alex Bridges (sr), Butler, Harper Still (jr) and Robbie Knight (jr).

The Predators will try to up their record to 2-0 when Cross Creek High School from Augusta comes for a visit to North Augusta.
