Oceanside Collegiate’s Hartman excited for Shrine Bowl opportunity


Spartanburg Oceanside Collegiate’s first-ever Shrine Bowl selection, quarterback Sam Hartman, is making sure to enjoy every part of the all-star game process as he prepares for the December 16 game at Wofford College.

Hartman was selected to the South Carolina Shrine Bowl team after playing just one season at Oceanside Collegiate. He helped lead the Landsharks to a 7-3 record after transferring from Davidson Day in Charlotte.

The quarterback has already committed to Wake Forest and will enroll in college in January. This season at Oceanside, Hartman passed for 3,093 yards and 29 touchdowns, completing 59 percent of his attempts. In two previous years as the starter at Davidson Day, the 6-1, 180-pounder combined to throw for 6,388 yards and 69 touchdowns. He finished his prep career with 9,381 yards passing and 98 touchdowns.

Had Hartman stayed at Davidson Day, he would not have been eligible for the North Carolina Shrine Bowl because the school was a private school. Despite growing up in North Carolina, the opportunity to represent South Carolina in the game is a true honor.

“I’m all in for South Carolina in this game, no doubt,” Hartman said. “This is an unbelievable honor for me and for Oceanside. I love all my buddies in North Carolina but Saturday is all business. We’re trying to win the game and I will do whatever is necessary.”

 Hartman is competing for playing time with South Carolina commit Dakereon Joyner of Fort Dorchester. Joyner is enrolling at South Carolina in January. He was named Mr. Football in the state on December 9th.

“He’s a great player and a great person,” Hartman said. “I am glad I could play with him and add him as a friend. We have the same goal in the game. Whoever is in there, we want to execute and help the team win.”
