Week 0 Prime Time Players

A quick look around the state during Week 0 as we feature some of the state's top individual performances. Some of the known commodities put on a show during the opening week and some new names emerged as well. Come inside to see some of the guys who balled out on Friday night like a guy we feel is about to blow up in 2016 Westside WR Matthew Martin (pictured).

Week 0 is in the books and South Carolina high school football fans got their fix as things got underway. We've got some of the top individual performances that were reported to us below.

2017 Dorman QB Jaylen Fowler- Fowler stepped up for injured 3-star QB Collin Hill who's battling an ankle injury and performed admirably considering he's never started on varsity or JV prior to Dorman's 49-7 beating of Wade Hampton. Fowler had 213 yards and 3 touchdowns on the night for the Cavaliers.

2015 Dorman WR J.J. Arcega-Whiteside- The Stanford commit had just 5 catches for 77 yards and 2 touchdowns but the Cavaliers were never challenged in their 49-7 win over the Generals of Wade Hampton.

2016 Blythewood CB Khris Pam- Despite Blythewood getting rocked by Rock Hill 40-6 Pam, a tall cornerback, had a strong game for the Bengals on defense with 8 tackles. Pam is getting early looks and we'll feature him again soon here on SCPrepNation.com.

2015 York QB Deshaw Andrews- At 6'4 245 pounds Andrews is a big presence in the pocket but he got it done both by air and on the ground for the Cougars as they came back to defeat Sumter 42-34. Sumter competed in last year's AAAA Division 1 state championship game. Andrews rushed 13 times for 106 yards and 5 touchdowns and was 22-30 for 268 yards and 2 touchdowns. We'll have an update with Andrews soon to check out the latest regarding his recruitment as he's a player that college coaches need to look at.

2015 Sumter WR Kyjon Tyler- Tyler isn't the biggest prospect out there but he's a threat anytime he touches the ball coming out of the slot. At 5'9 165 pounds Tyler has the ability to make big plays and he did major damage against York on Friday in Sumter's 43-34 loss. He had 11 catches for 237 yards and 2 touchdowns. He's got one offer currently but with a performance like Friday night expect more schools to start inquiring soon. We'll catch up with Tyler soon to talk about it all.

2016 Byrnes QB Micah Young- Young made his first varsity start on the road against the defending AAAA Division 2 state champions Northwestern on national television via ESPNU. Although it wasn't a perfect showing he looked impressive and in control of his team as they came away with a 30-22 win over the Trojans. Northwestern was ranked #35 in the country according to the Scout.com Top 50 Poll coming into the matchup. Young ended the night 20-35 with 3 touchdowns and 1 interception. He also had 16 rushes for 40 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

2015 Byrnes RB Isaiah Hill- The Miami (Ohio) commit didn't really show much on the ground but he helped break the game open with a 86 yard catch and run down the sideline for a touchdown. He finished the night with 2 catches for 104 yards and the touchdown. At 6'2 220 pounds Hill's size and catching ability will probably have the Redhawks coaches trying to keep other schools from trying to change Hill's mind before Signing Day comes.

2016 Spartanburg QB Austin Scott- Scott came out firing in a shootout against Eastern Christian Academy which is composed mostly of college freshmen aged D1 prospects that are recruited to the school in Maryland. Spartanburg went on to lose Scott was 23-33 for 370 yards and 5 touchdowns in the loss.

2017 Northwestern WR Logan Rudolph- Rudolph is carving out his own path and had a nice game against Byrnes on Friday night with 3 catches for 96 yards. He's a big kid checking in at 6'3 200 pounds so he looks the part and he played the part for the Trojans as well. We'll feature Rudolph soon to see which schools are already showing interest in the talented sophomore.

2016 Northwestern LB Trae'von Hinton- Hinton was a guy that kept making plays and always seemed to be in on plays on Friday night. We're not certain of his exact stats but we had him down for at least 2 sacks against Byrnes. He's a player we'll reach out to and feature soon as he's definitely got college prospect written all over him.

2015 Northwestern DT Chris Bouyer- Bouyer is another Trojan who made things tough all night for the Byrnes offense as he was in the backfield often and came up with a pair of sacks himself. At 6'2 270 pounds the first thing that came to mind was former Trojans DT Gerald Dixon who is currently playing at South Carolina. We'll see if Bouyer is hearing from any schools after his big performance on national television.

2016 Westside WR Matthew Martin- Martin is a guy we spotted in the summer during 7 on 7 action. Martin made good on our projections in his first game of the season with 5 catches for 114 yards and 3 touchdowns. Westside defeated Clover 44-26 and we expect a lot of schools to come calling before too long for this dynamic playmaker in coach Scott Earley's offense and we'll have another update with him in the next few weeks.

2015 Westside QB Cal King- Well Matthew Martin had to get the ball thrown to him and that's where Cal King comes in. The recent transfer to Westside was an efficient 13-19 for 196 yards and 4 touchdowns. He's got a number of regional schools looking now and don't be surprised to see him pick up some more offers after a few more games.

2016 Spartanburg RB Tavien Feaster- The state's top junior prospect held his own against a tough and more mature Eastern Christian Academy in the 58-56 overtime loss. Feaster picked up right where he left off last season getting it done rushing and receiving. He would finish with 12 carries for 144 yards and 5 catches for 133 yards. Keep in mind that Feaster did this against a team mostly comprised of D1 prospects.

2015 Dutch Fork RB Matt Colburn- The Louisville commit continues to assault the record books as he went for 4 touchdowns on Friday night as Dutch Fork opened their season with a 45-19 victory over Greenwood. Colburn had 18 carries for 146 yards to go with those 4 touchdowns.

2015 Greenwood WR Markeyvious Adams- Adams will be in Greenwood's new offense as more of a target this season after running in the wing-T the past few seasons and the 6'5 wide receiver had a nice showing against defending state champions Dutch Fork despite the 45-19 loss. Adams went for 110 yards and a touchdown on the night.
