First Touchdown

“First Touchdown” is an action shot taken of South Pointe’s wide receiver B.J. Davis during his final game of the season as a junior, when he scored his first touchdown of the season. The final game happened to be during the state championship game played at Williams-Brice Stadium, making this moment especially sweet for the player and fans.

Pure Joy

Carrying Dreams

Taking it in

“Taking in it” captures junior Clemson football commit Derion Kendrick reflecting at the bottom of the State House steps on what he and his Stallion team accomplished as three-time state champions. The look on his face shows solemnity, yet behind that, it shows humbleness. Despite the hype of everything, it finally hit Kendrick–he is a champion.
