The Myrtle Beach Seahawks scored a convincing 64-16 win over Hilton Head in the first round of the class 3A playoffs. On the final play of the game, Hilton Head's Chip Mullen, a senior with Down Syndrome, scored on a 75 yard touchdown run on the final play of his high school career. Myrtle Beach joined the Hilton Head players in the end zone to celebrate Mullen's score.
"I thought it would be neat," Myrtle Beach head coach Mickey Wilson told WPDE Sports. Last month, Berkeley ended its game with Hilton Head by fumbling and allowing Mullen to score on defense.
