Week 1 Top Performers

Inside a look at some of the top individual performances from the Palmetto State during Week 1 of the high school football season. Did Everett Golson (pictured) take home the honors? Some new names are also starting to emerge and inside find out who is the Player Of The Week.

De'Angelo Henderson
Running Back, 5-9 190 lbs.
Class of 2011
Summerville High School

Henderson rushed for 259 yards and 5 touchdowns in a 50-26 victory over Conway. He scored 3 touchdowns in the 4th quarter with the game still in doubt. Last year as a junior he ran for 1,567 yards and 15 touchdowns. Despite rushing for big numbers throughout his career Henderson says he's still awaiting his first scholarship offer.

Virgil Smalls
Fullback/Running Back, 5-11 260 lbs.
Class of 2012
Goose Creek High School

Smalls was huge on Friday night carrying 20 times for 160 yards and 3 touchdowns. Smalls following behind 5-star OL Brandon Shell helped the Gators defeat Irmo 49-28. Smalls is already receiving early interest from ACC and SEC programs early on in his recruitment.

Dawan Scott
Running Back, 6-0 175 lbs.
Class of 2011
Irmo High School

Scott is taking over for NC State freshman RB Mustafa Greene and he has been the focal point of the Irmo offense just as his predecessor was. On Friday night Scott rushed 32 times for 228 yards and 4 touchdowns in a 49-28 loss against Goose Creek. Scott doesn't hold any scholarship offers currently but after surpassing the 200 yard mark in consecutive games expect colleges to start taking a closer look at him.

Hakeem Flowers
Wide Receiver, 6-3 185 lbs.
Class of 2011
Wade Hampton High School

The senior standout's numbers haven't been eye popping as his squad ran the wing-T offense the past two seasons. His head coach vowed to open things up with the spread this year and it appears Flowers may be on his way to a big time senior campaign. Friday night his squad came out victorious in overtime 56-55 over Blue Ridge. Flowers when he got his hands on the ball showed the explosiveness that has landed him over 40+ scholarship offers. The 3-star prospect ended Friday night with 6 catches for 200 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Shaq Roland
Safety/Running Back, 6-1 180 lbs.
Class of 2012
Lexington High School

Roland displayed just why so many scouts are so high on him in the class of 2012 on Friday night. The safety prospect also lines up as a running back and he carried 6 times for 50 yards and 2 touchdowns. He also exploded for a 90 yard kickoff return for a touchdown in helping his team storm back after being down early for a 34-23 victory.

Justin Worley
Quarterback, 6-4 190 lbs.
Class of 2011
Northwestern High School

The Northwestern QB got a chance to play on ESPN on Saturday afternoon and he put on a show leading his Trojans to a victory over crosstown rivals South Pointe. The game Worley was 24-33 for 322 yards and 5 touchdowns. Worley, a Tennessee commit, found his rhythm in the second half as he guided his squad to a huge victory for bragging rights in the city of Rock Hill. The Trojans have been to the AAAA Division II state championship game the past two seasons both times coming up short but Worley and company are using it as motivation to get back to the title game and reverse the outcome this season.

Brandon Lewis
Wide Receiver, 5-10 145 lbs.
Class of 2011
Northwestern High School

Lewis was overshadowed by teammate Robert Joseph who broke the state record with 150 catches a year ago. Saturday Lewis took advantage of the attention Joseph drew and helped the Trojans in their 42-20 win over South Pointe. Lewis had 6 catches for 173 yards and 2 touchdowns as his squad exploded for 35 points in the 3rd quarter propelling them to the victory. With Lewis stepping up and Joseph still the primary threat expect the duo to cause headaches as the Trojans prepare to make another run at a state title in the AAAA Division II classification.

Everett Golson
Quarterback, 5-11 180 lbs.
Class of 2011
Myrtle Beach High School

Golson continues his assault on the record books not only on the state level but on the national level. Friday night saw him go 18-22 for 302 yards and 4 touchdowns. Golson who has already given a verbal to North Carolina also rushed for another touchdown in a lopsided victory over Carolina Forest.

Roderick Davenport
Running Back, 5-11 185
Class of 2011
Orangeburg-Wilkinson High School

Davenport was highly productive on just 11 carries for 147 yards and 4 touchdowns as his squad cruised to a 51-0 victory on Friday night. Davenport is expected to shoulder a lot of the load for his squad along with 2011 WR Kintrell Disher.

Daquan Fuller
Wide Receiver, 6-3 185 lbs
Class of 2011
Spartanburg High School

The 2011 prospect got his senior season off to a strong start in helping his team to a 27-19 victory over Union County who is led by Wake Forest commit DE Desmond Floyd. Fuller has been a promising prospect over the past two seasons and he appears ready to take the next step as he caught 6 passes for 117 yards and 2 touchdowns in the victory on Friday night. Right now FCS schools are taking a look but things could change in the immediate future with more performances similar to Friday night.

Jeremiah McKie
Quarterback/Wide Receiver, 5-11 170 lbs.
Class of 2011
Mauldin High School

After helping lead his team to their best record in nearly 30 years last season McKie is back under center once again for the Mavericks. On Friday they took on their bitter rivals Hillcrest and McKie showed why he's one of the state's top prospects in accounting for 4 touchdowns on the night. He threw for two strikes and ran for another pair of scores in leading the Mavericks to a 32-7 win over the Rams.

Kendrick Salley
Running Back, 5-11 205 lbs.
Class of 2011
Williston-Elko High School

Salley powered the Blue Devils rushing attack with 187 yards and 2 touchdowns on the night as Williston-Elko High emerged victorious 56-15 over Barnwell on Friday night. Last year, paired with RB/LB Dexter Staley, Salley helped the Blue Devils win the 1A Division 2 state championship. With most of their offensive firepower returning once again many feel they are the odds on favorite to do it once again.
