Cavaliers end 7-3 season with playoff loss

Moncks Corner – While the ending was not what he had hoped for, St. John’s Christian Academy head football coach John McCall could not help but to be pleased with the season his Cavaliers had in 2018.

It was not long ago when St. John’s Christian struggled to even be competitive but the program has grown in recent years. The Cavaliers finished the regular season with a 7-2 record but suffered a first-round playoff loss to Clarendon Hall on November 2 to finish at 7-3.

“So proud of our boys,” McCall says. “Four years ago they were winless. They hung in there and competed and our seniors are going out strong. I am so proud of them for sticking with it.”

This year’s roster included six key seniors who McCall says will be missed, not only for their production on the field but also for their leadership.

The six seniors this fall included Dylan Parsons, Bryce Butler, Collin Robertson, Cooper Moorer, Matt Atchley and Issac Boley.

Parsons was a key leader along the offensive and defensive lines while Moorer was one of the team’s primary running backs. Butler was the team’s top receiver and Robertson was an anchor defensively at linebacker. Atchley played along the defensive line and Boley worked in the defensive secondary.

Several underclassmen had productive seasons for the Cavaliers and should return to lead the charge in 2019. Sophomore Nai’Ryan Bookert took over as the quarterback this season after transferring from Berkeley. McCall saw steady progress throughout the season by Bookert and feels he will be a major offensive threat next year.

Junior Fletcher Law was one of the top running backs with Moorer this season. Junior Logan Robertson was a leader along the offensive line while junior Rochard Tingue had a good year at defensive end.

St. John’s Christian opened the season with a road loss at Wardlaw, 30-22. They hit the road for a second straight week and beat W.W. King, 44-0, then pasted Laurens Academy, 66-12.

A 58-8 win over Palmetto Christian was followed by a loss at Beaufort Academy. The Cavaliers closed the regular season with wins over Faith/Ridge Christian (68-0), Holly Hill (54-0), Patrick Henry (64-0) and Cathedral Academy (40-6).
