Myrtle Beach ready for QB competition

CJ Cooper

Everett Golson was one of the most accomplished high school football quarterbacks in Palmetto State history. With the two time WPDE Zoneman winner off to Notre Dame, Mickey Wilson is using the summer passing league and August practices to find out who will be the next Seahawks quarterback.

The defending class 3A state champions have two options: left handed Tyler Keane, a transfer from Carolina Forest along with CJ Cooper. Cooper was able to get some varsity seasoning in 2010 as the Seahawks third string quarterback. He was 21/33 for 264 yards with 4 TD's and 3 INT's.

During Myrtle Beach's competition at the Coastal Carolina passing league tournament, Seahawks head coach Mickey Wilson alternated Keane and Cooper each play. Wilson has not ruled out a two quarterback system in 2011. Myrtle Beach High hosts its big passing league tournament on Thursday. It's a makeup for the rained out 4th of July Shootout.
