The North Myrtle Beach Chiefs are coming off the best football season in school history with a record of 11-2.

Matt Reel takes over as head coach after Blair Hardin took the same position at River Bluff High.

Reel was an assistant under Hardin, so it has been a smooth transition.

ABC 15 All-Zone selection Tyler Gore has committed to Georgia State. He will pull double duty at wide receiver and defensive back.

Kered Class and T.J Gore will get plenty of touches out of an experienced backfield.

Quarterback Cason McClendon returns at quarterback to lead seven returning starters.

Defensive End Kwame Livingston is one of six starters back on defense.

North Myrtle Beach will open the season with a road game against the Timberland Wolves on Friday, August 18.
