The North Myrtle Beach Chiefs are under new management this season. 32-year old Blair Hardin takes over a program that finished 9-3 last year.
North Myrtle Beach was hit hard by graduation. Top rusher Delonzo Williams, leading receiver Cameron Gore, and defensive star Laquinn Bellamy have departed.
Quarterback Kendrick Furness is one of five returning starters on offense. He's a dual threat signal caller who is getting better with age.
Furness will run an up tempo attack. His top targets are expected to be Colby Gore and Kyle Cooper.
Junior center Chris Coleman will anchor a young offensive line. Running backs Keyshawn Moore, and Tre'shon Cox will lead a physical ground game for the Chiefs. 5'7" 160 pound Willie Gause will provide speed in the backfield.
Gore, who has committed to play college football at East Carolina, will double up at defensive back. A total of six starters are back on defense. Both Moore and Cox will provide senior leadership at linebacker.
North Myrtle Beach will open the season on the road against defending Class AA Champion Dillon on August 22nd.
