Chesterfield looking to bounce back

Chesterfield— Chesterfield High School has seen its share of successes on the football field in the last couple of decades but last year the Golden Rams suffered a bit of down season. However, Head Coach Chris Arnoult and his staff are hoping to turn things around this Fall.

That turnaround will likely hinge upon an offense that will have all starters returning, led by Savion Watson, a 6’1”, 205 lb. quarterback who has gotten interest from the likes of Furman, Wingate, and Charleston Southern.

Watson’s targets for the Chesterfield offense will include Shyheim Rivers, Travis Bowen, Ricky Lockhart, and Jalen Thompson.

The Golden Rams’ offensive line will likely be anchored by Blake Arnoult at center, guards Zane Huggins and Daquan Burch, and tackles Colby Smith and Michael Wall.

Working along side Watson in the backfield will be running back James McBride.

Rivers, according to Arnoult, is among the top juniors on the Golden Rams’ team.

While Arnoult said that the defense for Chesterfield will be young, he also pointed out that the until is very talented.

“If they mature they should help us have a successful season,” he says.

The cornerstone of that defensive unit could very well be Senior Deandre Lewis, a 6’1”, 185 lb. defensive back.

 Other defensive backs expected to play a good bit include Deonte Bowen, Trey Robinson, and KD Moser.

Also expecting to be major contributors for Chesterfield’s defensive team are defensive lineman Zion Bostic (6’ 0”, 300 lb.) and defensive lineman Dylan Robinson (6’ 1”, 278 lbs).

Linebackers will likely include Bobby Cash, Josh Sellers and Gabe Oliver.

Specialist Will Douglas will be handling both the placekicking and punting duties for Chesterfield.

Fellow defensive lineman Gabe Hurst is also expected to contribute after a stellar junior varsity season last year.

Chesterfield opens their season this Friday at county rival McBee High. The Panthers last season handled the Golden Rams a lost in week one by a score of 52-45.
