Bobcats ready for final stretch drive to playoffs

Hollywood – By the time the Baptist Hill football team plays again, they would have two weeks off due to the cancellation of a game with Green Sea-Floyds in the wake of Hurricane Florence.
Baptist Hill’s game with the Trojans had to be cancelled due to flooding in the Grand Strand area of the state. And, the Bobcats have their built-in bye week on October 5th. The schedule will resume with a region 4-A contest against Charleston Charter on October 12th, followed by region games with Military Magnet and St. John’s. The Bobcats will close out the regular season with a November 2nd non-region game against Cross.
The season got off to a rocky start for Baptist Hill. The Bobcats opened 2018 with losses to Oceanside Collegiate (17-8) and Garrett Tech (12-6, in overtime). Veteran head coach Marion Brown tinkered a bit with the offense, moving the team’s leading receiver, Rashad Maxwell, to quarterback. The change has been significant.
Baptist Hill has won the last three games in impressive fashion. They knocked off Burke, 60-6, and beat an undefeated Academic Magnet team, 72-0. They followed with a 58-0 win over North Charleston.
Maxwell has been near perfect in the Bobcats’ shot gun spread offense. He has completed 40 of 53 passes for 759 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.
Sophomore receiver Terrance Brown has emerged as a big play threat in the passing game. He has 15 pass receptions for 436 yards and four touchdowns, averaging 29.1 yards per catch.
Junior Raequan Holmes has 13 catches for 223 yards and Jayvonte Burnell has 10 grabs for 239 yards. Burnell also has racked up 393 yards on the ground with six touchdowns and is averaging 14 yards per carry.
The Bobcats have more than 1,700 yards in their first four games of the season.
On defense, junior linebacker Tiquain Bright has 44 tackles to lead the team. Junior Donte Gilliard has 37 tackles and senior Deshawn Stephens has 32 total hits. Senior Jamal Barron has 27 tackles and two interceptions. Sophomore Savion Townsend has three interceptions and junior Jordan Bailey has two picks. Baptist Hill has 10 interceptions in the first four games.
