Jackets season ends with 24-7 loss to BHP

Greer's defense stops BHP's Chase Robinson....

Four Greer turnovers and strong defense send Bears to Upstate finals.....

By all accounts before the game, BHP had a great defense. They didn't dissapoint, as the Greer Yellow Jacket's 2004 season came to an end Friday night with a 24-7 loss to the Belton-Honea Path Bears. Greer showed sparks of offense all night long, but four turnovers, and a couple of untimely penalties to go along with a strong BHP defense put the Bears in scoring position just enough to get ahead, then a ball control offense kept Greer at bay.
The Jackets came out strong, getting two first downs, and moved past midfield on a Travis Gilliam pass to Chad Cartwright, but Cartwright was stripped of the ball and BHP recovered. And even though the Greer defense held the Bears to three plays and a punt, it did stop a drive that had some momentum. On their nest posession, the Jackets moved to the BHP 37, but on 4th & 6, were forced to punt. That's when the Bears would go on one of their two long scoring drives on the night. They went 87 yards on 12 plays, the big play was a 46 yard pass from quarterback O'Bryan Clinkscales to Bryan Miller. Miller was hit at the line of scrimmage, but broke a tackle, and was run down by Chris Owens at the 23 yard line. They would stall at the 4, but Andrew Jenkins kicked a 21 yard field goal to give BHP a 3-0 lead with 7:56 to go in the first half.
Greer would get a first down at the 37, but Gilliam's pass a play later was intercepted, and returned 37 yards to the Greer 13. It took BHP four plays to score, as on third & goal from the Greer three, Clinkscales and Miller botched the exchange, and the ball dribbled on the turf. But almost as planned, Clinkscales beat a Greer defender to the ball and ran it in for an unlikely touchdown to make it 10-0 with 4:26 to go. Greer made a late run at points in the half, but stalled at midfield.
A scoreless third quarter saw the Jacket offense struggle to get anything sustained going, while Greer's defense was equally imposing. But the Bears would deliver a blow as the 4th started taking nearly half the time off the clock as they went 91 yards on 16 plays for a touchdown. On third & eight at the Greer 25, they were aided by a personal foul call on the Jackets, and on third down again, Clinkscales found tight end Josh Tavernier in the end zone to go up 17-0. There was no quit in Greer, as the Jackets went 78 yards in just two plays, the last a 66 yard pass down the middle to Cartwright, who caught it as midfield, and outran the secondary to the goal line. Daniel Fiske's PAT made it 17-7 with 6:07 remaining. Greer attempted an on sides kick, but Bryan Miller recovered for BHP, and the Jackets were forced to begin calling their timeouts. On third & 10 from the Greer 25, most people in the stadium figured the Bears to run the ball & burn more time off the clock. But they surprised everyone by throwing it to the end zone, where Miller got behind everyone for a clinching touchdown to make ti 24-7. Greer had one more drive into BHP territory, but an interception by who else, Miller, stopped that drive and the Bears ran out the clock.
Greer's fine season ends with a 9-4 record, while BHP, now 13-0, will host the Clinton Red Devils from the Enoree River Conference in the Upstate Finals. Clinton defeated Fairfield Central 15-12 to earn their spots in the Upstate Finals. The Poinsett Grocery Players of the Game were Chad Carwright on offense. Chad had 182 recieving yards on the night, and Greer's lone score. On defense, Travis Grayson gets the honor. He had 12 tackles on the night.
The Yellow Jacket Sports Network thanks Coach Perry and the Jackets for a great 2004 season, as they defended their 2003 State Championship well. Greer says goodbye to a great group of seniors, but returns a solid base going into next year, and will bring up a group of JV & C-Team Players that had outstanding records this year as well. So, the future is bright!
Also, on a personal note, I want to thank Van Brannon, Chad Hannon, Steven Gay, David Holtzclaw, and James Brown for all they do each year to make Friday night radio broadcasts fun & special. You guys are the best! Check this website for news on selected Greer High basketball games to be broadcast on WPJM AM-800, as basketball is fast approaching.

Greer knocks the 10-1 Red Raiders from playoffs.....travel to B-HP next week

For $6, there is no better value in America. Once again, the Greer Yellow Jackets and the Greenville Red Raiders slugged in out in a wild, intense, hard hitting, fifteen round title bout, this time at Sirrine Stadium, and for the second year in a row, Greer was left standing when the bell rung in a breathtaking 38-34 win. Greer now advances to the Upstate Semi-Finals next week against the Belton-Honea Path Bears, while Greenville's excellent season ends with a 10-2 mark.
Unlike their August meeting, when the Red Raiders won 48-27, Greer scored first on a 1 yard quarterback sneak by Travis Gilliam. Daniel Fiske added the extra point, and Greer led 7-0. With the defense bending but not breaking, the Jackets would get a Fiske field goal from 30 yards for a 10-0 lead with 5:44 remaining in the 1st half. But 3 minutes later, Greenville QB Jordan Sorrells scored on a 1 yard run on 4th down. The extra point was no good, making it 10-6. Greer would score quickly. In just six plays, the Jackets went 65 yards, the final 33 coming on an Arthur Sitton run with :42 to go in the half to make it 17-6. Greenville would strike back lightning fast, getting a good kick return to the 44, and then in just 3 plays scored, as Sorrells hit Marckus Boswell on a 14 yard pass to make the score 17-12 at the half.
From there, the pace quickend. Greenville took their first lead of the night on another pass from Sorrells to Boswell, an 18 yarder. The 2 point conversion run by Sorrells made it 20-17 Red Raiders. But Greer would answer right back. Led by Sitton, who had 261 rushing yards on the night, the Jackets again marched. On 4th and 3 from the Greenville 27, Siiton burst through a big hole, was hit at the 5, skirted sideways, and in for the touchdown, and after another good kick by Fiske, Greer was back on top 24-20 with 6:06 in the 3rd.
Greenville then took off again, but when they reached the Greer 18, Sorrells threw to the near sideline, and Dyshun Grayson intercepted, and ran 82 yards for a Jacket touchdown with 8:44 to go. That made it 31-20, as Fiske kicked a 35 yard extra point. Showing strong resolve, the Red Raiders came right back on a 13 play, 54 yard drive, as Boswell got another TD catch from Sorrells at the 5:42 mark. That made it 31-26, as Tyrone Williams batted down a 2 point try.
But Greer had resolve too. The Jackets got a 20 yard run by Sitton on 2nd & 11, then 8 plays later, Arthur cracked in the end zone from 3 yards, giving Greer a 38-26 lead with just 1:47 to go in the game. "My offensive line tonight was just awesome", Sitton said after the game. Greenville still wouldn't die. They went 70 yards on 8 plays in just over a minute, getting another Boswell catch,and two point conversion run by Travail Jamsion, who was held to just 50 yards rushing on 21 tries, to make it 38-34. And with just :44 to go, the Red Raiders tried an onsides kick. It bounced just the way they'd have it do, but Travis Gilliam grabbed it, and Greer was able to run out the clock and advance.
Coach Travis Perry was elated with the win. "Our guys fought hard, and they showed great will tonight. Greenville has one heck of a football team. They are really good. But even though this shocks a lot of people, it doens't really shock us. We knew if we played well, we could win this game. We are excited that we get to keep playing."
Greer moves to 9-3 on the season, and will travel to face Belton-Honea Path next week. The Bears have a new stadium - in the same location - since the last meeting between the two teams, which was in the 2000 season playoffs, as Greer upset the then undefeated Bears 31-16. The Poinsett Grocery Players of the game were Sitton, with his 261 yards and 3 touchdowns, while on defense, it was Tyrone Williams, who broke up at least 4 passes that looked like Greenville touchdwons.
Radio airtime will be 6:00, with the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, and the kickoff is at 7:30. We'll also broadcast around the world-wide-web from this website, as well as inside the BHP stadium on an FM frequency, probably either 98.5 or 99.5 FM. So please, if you can, be there! It was great to see the 5000 Greer fans or more in Greenville tonight. Let's travel and support the Jackets, even louder and bigger numbers next week on the "road to Columbia"! GO JACKETS!!

Greer whips Demons 38-13 in playoff opener..... Greer will now play at Sirrine Stadium against the Greenville Red Raiders.....

The Greer Yellow Jackets came out in full tilt Friday night in the opening round of the state AAA playoffs. After forcing Lugoff-Elgin to punt in 3 plays, Greer got good field position after the first of many Chad Cartwright punt returns. Cartwright's return gave Greer the ball at the Demon 30 yard line. Two plays later, Greer was in the end zone, as Arthur Sitton scored from the 9. Daniel Fiske's extra point was good and atthe 9:46 mark Greer led, 7-0. Another good defensive stand and punt return gave the Jackets the ball again at the 41.Travis Gilliam ran it in from the final 5 yards and it was 14-0.
In the 2nd quarter, Greer would put up 17 more points. At the 7:31 mark, Sitton went in from the 5 to make it 21-0 on a 47 yard drive. And with the defense suffocating Lugoff-Elgin, Gilliam found Chad Cartwright open down the middle for a 28 yard throw & catch that ran the score to 28-0. That came with 3:32 left in the half. With the defense continuing to dominate, Greer got the ball back with 1:37 to go at their own 32. They quickly moved downfield, and Fiske kicked a 32 yard field goal with less than a second to go before intermission, and Greer led 31-0.
It didn't get better quick for Lugoff-Elgin, as Greer would get the ball first in teh 2nd half. On the kickoff, Arthur Sitton backpeddled to the 9 to catch the kick. He raced up the near sideline 91 yards for a touchdown to make ti 38-0. From there, Greer substitued freely. The Demons got two late fourth quarter scores, the first one a two yard run by quarterback Tim Webb, and the second a 51 yard pass from backup QB Nick Booth to North-South All Star Terrance Dixon. Ricky Taylor was one for two on the PAT's, making the final score 38-13.
The Poinsett Grocery Players of the Game were Devon Dawson on offense, and Chris Owens on defense. Devon was playing his first game back at offensive guard after suffering a knee injury back in week 4 against Berea. Owens had 7 tackles, two for loss, and a sack against the Demons. Congratulations to Devon & Chris! Coach Travis Perry was extremely pleased with his team's performance. "That was a very good Lugoff-Elgin team out there tonight. They had over 2000 yards passing coming in and a back that had nearly 1000 yards. Our defense set the tone early, our special teams made some big plays to give us great field position, and our offense was good enough to put up 38 points in just over two quarters. Defense wins championships, and our played great tonight." On playing Greenville, "Our team's gotten better since we played them ealier this year (a 48-27 Greenville win), and I know they are better too. Hopefully we'll take a huge crowd over there, and it'll be a great game."
Radio airtime is 6:00 for the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, and the kickoff is at 7:30. We'll also be broadcasting in & around Sirrine Stadium on our FM transmitter. We'll post the frequency here, by the middle of the week. Of course, in & around Greer, we'll be on WPJM AM-800. Let your out of town friends know they can listen on this website too! Please make your plans to be there if you can, but if not, we trust you'll tune in. GO JACKETS!!

Notes: Arthur Sitton rushed for 99 yards, giving him over 2000 for the season. He passed 2000 midway through the 1st quarter.

Also- The Greer defense held Lugoff-Elgin to -36 yards in the 3rd quarter.

Tonight's game was the 2nd ever between Greer & Lugoff Elgin. The previous meeting was in 1995, when Greer also won 30-7 at Dooley Field.

Travis Perry is now 11-2 in the playoffs as a Head Coach.

Clinton sqeaks past Jackets for title.....
The Greer defense surrounds the Clinton tailback....

Red Devils win 22-19 to take the #1 seed into the playoffs.....#2 Greer hosts Lugoff-Elgin in next week's first round....

With just under four minutes to play, the Greer Yellow Jackets broke the offensive huddle with hope, trailing Clinton 22-19. Their defense was tired, spent from the pounding running attack of Clinton. But they stopped them. Clinton had run off seven minutes on the drive, moving to the Greer 19 before turning it over on downs. So there was hope as they broke the huddle. Tyrone Williams motioned to the near side. Travis Gilliam faked the handoff to Tyrone, then Arthur Sitton, who had delayed his cut, passed by the other way. Gilliam gave him the ball. After angling towards the near sideline, Arthur turned upfield and he was gone, pulling away for an improbable 81 yard touchdown run. A run that most likely wins the game, gives Greer a 5-0 sweep, and a first place seed in the playoffs.
Flag on the play. The run was called back due to an illegal block just a step from the Red Devil sideline. Greer would eventually move to the Clinton 42, but would give it up on downs. The Jackets regained posession with just 31 seconds to play, and moved from their 18 to the Clinton 45, but the desparation pass with 5 seconds to go was picked off at the Clinton 10.
Early, the Jackets took a 6-0 lead after Travis Grayson recovered a Clinton fumble at the 2. Sitton would score on the next play. The extra point was blocked. After punting the ball to the Red Devil 3, Clinton would take the lead going 97 yards in just 8 plays, the last a 37 yard completion from Marion Tribble to James Copeland. Eli Watts extra point gave Clinton the lead at 7-6 with 5:38 to go in the 1st quarter. Greer would retake the lead at the 3:55 mark before the half on a Sitton 1 yard run. The play capped a 79 yard drive. Greer went for two, but Gilliam's pass to Williams was too hot to handle & Greer led 12-7. Thinking Clinton might try to run out the clock, Tribble found Copeland again on another 37 yard play to the Greer 21. Two plays later it was Copeland again, catching a halfback pass from the 21 from Chatuane Reader. They went for two, and converted giving Clinton a 15-12 lead at the break.
Then in the 3rd quarter, they would extend the lead to 10, as fullback Sam Wilson rushed 19 yards to make it 22-12. Greer would strom right back, scoring on a long drive when Sitton, who scored all 3 Greer TD's caught a throwback pass fro Gilliam from the 8 to make it 22-19. Two plays after the kickoff Greer recovered a fumble at the Clinton 31, but Gilliam had a pass tipped and intercepted just three plays later, setting up the long drive by Clinton that Greer stopped at the 19.
Coach Travis Perry was dissapointed with the loss, but upbeat about his team going into the playoffs. "We made a good many mistakes, including the big one where we got the flag. We missed on a couple of plays that could have changed the outcome. But, Clinton's got a fine football team. Now, we gotta get ready for the playoffs, and that starts next Friday night."
Indeed. The Jackets host the Lugoff- Elgin Demons next week at Dooley Field. Tonight
s Poinsett Grocery Players of the Game were Stanley Johnson on offense, and Paul Hansen on defense.
Let's get our biggest crowd of the season into Dooley Field next week and make some noise! It's playoff time as Greer defends it's reign as State Champions! We'll be on the air at 6:00, with the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, followed by the kickoff at 7:30. GO JACKETS!!

Greer defeats Union in 24-21 thriller!

Poinsett Grocery Player of the Game Chad Cartwright scores the game winning touchdown....

Another classic struggle in "Jacket Bowl VIII" between two 3A giants.....Greer now 4-0 in Enoree River Conference race, still must beat Clinton for title....

Same two schools, same classic battle. In what could arguably now be the most intense series in the state, the Greer Yellow Jackets edged the Union Yellow Jackets tonight at Dooley Field in front of a packed house. The 24-21 win for Greer gives them a 4-0 region mark....sole posession of first place in the Enoree River Conference with just one game remaining in the 2004 season, that next week on the road against the Clinton Red Devils. Union, who beat Clinton earlier this year falls into a tie with Clinton for 2nd place at 3-1. Greer can wrap things up next week, while a loss would potentially create a mess at the top of the standings. Union hosts Clover next week.
Union startled the Dooley Field crowd early, taking thier 3rd posession in for a touchdown, as quarterback Steven Brewington hit RJ Dye down the middle with a 49 yard touchdown pass. David Gregory's PAT made it 7-0. Union would add to their lead a minute into the 2nd quarter on another Brewington pass, this one a 12 yarder to tight end Pip Smith that would make it 14-0.
On the next Greer drive, the Jackets moved downfield to the Union 1 yard line, but on 4th down, quarterback Travis Gilliam was dropped for a two yard loss. But the Greer defense forced Union to punt, and Greer would threaten again, only to miss on a 37 yard field goal attempt. But after another defensive stop Greer would get three points on a 35 yard kick by Daniel Fiske with 3:55 to go in the 1st half. Union, trying to hit on a big play, threw long on first down, but Cedrik McGowan made a diving interception at the Greer 38. Gilliam would quickly lead the Jackets downfield completing 3 passes to Chad Cartwright and a 3rd down pass to Stanley Johnson. And on 2nd down from the Union six, Gilliam rolled left, saw a seam, and leaped into the end zone to bring Greer to within 14-10 at the half.
Midway through the 3rd quarter, Greer would claim their first lead of the game, when from the Union 22, Cartwright took a short pass from Gilliam and dove headlong in for a score. Daniel Fiske then connected on a 35 yard extra point attempt to make it 17-14 Jackets. Trailing for the first time, Union put together perhaps their best drive of the night, going 75 yards, the last 35 on another pass play from Brewington to Dye to make it 21-17 Union with 5:00 to go in the 3rd.
Almost painful, Greer reached the Union red zone their next two times with the ball, only to be denied. But with only 4:04 to play, after a series of great defensive stops, Gilliam found Chad Cartwright down the Greer sideline. Chad made two Union defenders miss, then hurdled another, finding himself then free at the five, where he bolted in for the score. Fiske's extra point gave Greer a 24-21 lead. On the last Union drive, they reached out to the 42, but on 4th down, McGowan hammered RJ Dye as he was making the first down catch. The ball popped loose, and the Greer Yellow Jackets were winners. They have now defeated Union three straight games, after losing the previos five. The overall series record is now tied, with each team having won 17. Greer moves to 7-2 on the season, sporting a six game winning streak, and they head to Clinton.
The Poinsett Grocery Players of the game were Chad Cartwright on offense, who had 11 catches for 169 yards and two touchdowns, and Cedrick McGowan on defense, who's late first half interception set up Greer's important first touchdown.
Please make every effort to get to Clinton next week and support the Jackets. And take your headsets, as we'll be broadcasting on the FM transmitter inside the stadium there. We'll try to stay with 99.5 FM, but if there is anything there locally, we will need to move. Just look for us! Most likey we'll broadcast somewhere between 96 & 100 FM. In Greer & the Upstate, we will, of course be on WPJM AM-800. 6:00 will kick things off with the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, and kickoff is at 7:30. But either way, set aside next Friday night to support the Greer Yellow Jackets as they try to win the Enoree River Conference title!

Late defensive stand saves the Jackets on Homecoming

The Greer defense digs in against Clover ......Greer gets 22-16 win....

Greer overcomes penalties, mistakes to remain in 1st place tie in Enoree River race.......Union up next week at Dooley Field......

Two years ago, Clover had the ball deep in Greer territory late in the game, needing a touchdown to pull out an upset win. That night, Shun Foster of the Jackets intercepted the Clover pass near the goal line to secure a Greer win. Tonight, Clover had the ball, deep in Greer territory, late in the game, needing a touchdwon to pull out an upset win. This night there wasn't an interception, but pressure on the quarterback, and tight coverage on 4th down, stopped Clover at the Greer 18, and the Jackets were able to run out the clock. With the win, Greer remains tied for first in the conference race with Union, 35-0 winners over Riverside, setting up yet another showdown between Greer & Union next week at Dooley Field.
The game started strong for Greer, who would take the opening drive 76 yards for a touchdown, the score coming on a 46 yard run by quarterback Travis Gilliam. Daniel Fiske's extra point made it 7-0. Greer would get the ball back and actually score another touchdown, a 50 yard pass play, but illegal man downfield penalty brought it back. After a Greer punt, Clover would go on a long drive, culminated by a 5 yard run by 260 pound fullback Vince Star. After a half the distance penalty on the extra point, the Blue Eagles decided to go for two, and made it on Tony Cook's bootleg run. That put Clover up 8-7. Again, Greer would take off down the field. A good kick return by Chad Cartwright gave Greer good field position, and soon, Greer had first and goal at the two. Gilliam would score on the next play, but another penalty erased that touchdown, and the Jackets fumbled on the next play. The score would stay 8-7 until late in the half. With under 15 seconds to go, Arthur Sitton would break a 54 yard run to the Clover 15, and Daniel Fiske connected on a 32 yard field goal to end the half and give Greer a 10-8 lead.
The Jackets would recieve the opening kick in the 2nd half, and the first play from scrimmage would be another Sitton jaunt, this one 64 yards, and this one all the way to the end zone for a 16-8 lead. The extra point wasn't kicked, as a low snap resulted in an incomplete pass. Afterwards, Clover put together a 17 play drive, converting on 4 3rd down conversions. Finally they would score on a 4 yard Timmy Boyd run. They'd tie it up at 16, as Cook hit Boyd with the two point pass play. That came at the 5:03 mark of the 3rd quarter, and it would take Greer only 1:23 to regain the lead. After a failed onsides kick attempt by Clover they moved downfiled on a combination of Sitton, Gilliam, and Tyrone Williams runs. And from the one, Gilliam sneaked it in. And once again, snapper & holder couldn't convert, and Greer led by six.
Even though there was no more scoring, there was much more drama. Clover faked a punt that the Jackets stopped at the Clover 31. Greer couldn't capatalize though, as another penalty on 4th & one moved it back five yards. Gilliams pass to Williams was then knocked away, setting up the long, time consuming drive that ended at the Greer 18.
Coach Travis Perry was concerned about the mistakes, but elated to get the win. "I know we made some mistakes, you might say we were our worst enemy tonight, but still it's great to find a way to win, in spite of having two touchdowns taken off the board. I'm proud of our players & coaches for finding a way. Now next week we have another Jacket Bowl. We'll get to work and be ready to play here next week."
The Poinsett Grocery Players of the Game were defensive end Chris Owens on defense, and offensive lineman Chris Williams on offense.
As for Homecoming, Lindsey Slatton was named Homecoming Queen at halftime of the game. Congratulations to LINDSEY SLATTON!!
Again, next week Union will visit Dooley Field in a game that will put one team alone in first place in the Enoree River Conference standings. Both teams are now 3-0 in the league after tonight. Radio air time will be 6:00 for the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, and the game is at 7:30. The game will also be broadcast live on this website around the state & around the world, made possible by Laura Simmons of Joy Real Estate. We hope you'll get there early and support the GREER Yellow Jackets. So get fired up and be there Friday night. If you can't be there tune in! GO JACKETS!

Jackets full throttle against Riverside

Arthur Sitton rushes for some of his 354 yards against Riverside.....

Greer puts together four quarters of solid play in 57-14 win over Warriors.....

In what was a fitting end to an otherwise emotional day, the Greer Yellow Jackets spotted Riverside to an early 7-0 lead, then put up 50 unanswered points, en route to a 57-14 win Friday night at the Reservation. It was clearly the Jackets best full-game performance of the season, as the offense just kept coming in waves, while the defense shut down Riverside & highly touted sophomore quarterback Mike Wade. There were long kick returns, forced turnovers, sacks, sustained drives, and quick scores.....everything that could go right for Greer, did on this night. And Arthur Sitton, at the top of the state's leading running backs, solidified his metal with 354 yards rushing, and four touchdowns. It was, a good night to be a Yellow Jacket.
Earlier in the day, Greer Head Coach Travis Perry, lost his father, Jim Perry, in a short but intense battle with cancer. In remission over the past couple of years, the disease came back this fall. He died early in the afternoon at Greenville Memorial Hospital. In Coach Perry's absence from the game, Offensive Line Coach Will Young acted as Head Coach. In interviews on the Yellow Jacket Sports Network before & after the game many players & assistant coaches were unified behind Coach Perry. "We wanted to win this one, convincingly for Travis", Young said. "He's been after us to play four quarters of good football, and tonight we did it, for him. He's such a big part of these kids lives. He's a big part of my life too."
The Warriors came out of blocks fast though, as Wade marched his team down the field, 76 yards in just 7 plays, as he hit WR Jesse Jackson with a 31 yard pass play for the score. Richard Jackson made it 7-0 with his PAT. Greer would answer going 80 yards to get a 39 yard field goal by Daniel Fiske. Just 3 minutes later Sitton would burst it 73 yards to the Warrior 7, then score on the next play. That made it 10-7. With the defense now swarming, Tyrone Williams returned a Jackson punt 50 yards, then quaterback Travis Gilliam ran it in from 4 yards to make it 17-7. Just before the half DL Darren Moore in on short yardage from the Riverside 2, lined up in the "Buzzbone" formation, and plowed in for a TD to give Greer a 24-7 halftime lead, only after Fiske connected on a 35 yard extra point kick.
If Riverside was to make a comeback, Sitton deflated that effort quickly. Starting from the 20, it took Greer three plays to score, the last 73 on a Sitton sprint down the middle of the field. A 3 & out for the defense, gave the Jackets the ball at the Riverside 42, then Gilliam threw it long to Williams, who run under it for another score. And with the score at 37-7, Greer converted a 2nd and 26 into a first down with a 32 yard Sitton run, and then Arthur scored on a 33 yard dash. And after Kendall Freeman intercepted Wade at the Warrior 26, it took Sitton just one play from there to get 6 more points. That made it 50-7, with still 3:18 to go in the 3rd quarter. The 26 points in the quarter was Greer's best outburst of the season.
The rest of the way, Greer was able to play many of the reserves and JV players. Kyle Vicks caught an 11 yard touchdown pass from
Wade as the 3rd quarter ended on a nifty play out of the backfield. Then, with time waning, Chad Fryar led the offense down the field and scored from two yards out. Fiske's extra point closed out the scoring and a 57-14 win.
The Poinsett Grocery Players of the Game were Arthur Sitton on offense, and Travis Grayson on defense. Grayson had played for Riverside earlier in his high school days, before moving into the Greer area.
Next week the Jackets return home to Dooley Field to face the Clover Blue Eagles, 28-24 losers at home to the Clinton Red Devils tonight, in a game Clover led 24-7 at the half. Last week, Clover had defeated Riverside by a 51-23 margin. Clover runs the Wing-T offense, and had 426 rushing yards against Riverside. So come out, as it's Homecoming, and a chance for the now 5-2 Jackets to maintain at least a share of the Enoree River Conference lead. Radio air time will be 6:00, with the BB& T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, and the kickoff at 7:30. Also, from this website, and courtesy of Laura Simmons of Joy Real Eastate, you can listen from anywhere in the world. Webcast will begin around 6:00 as well. GO JACKETS!!

Jackets take out Eastside in conference opener

Greer receiver Tyrone Williams catches one of his 2 touchdown passes.....

Greer races to 32-0 & outlasts Eagles in 32-20 win.....

Last week Greer played an outstanding quarter of football at Pickens to open the game. Tonight they opened with two quarters of near-perfect football and by then, had built a 32-0 lead. In both games, the Jackets would see their opponent rally, but in the end, Greer would come away with the victory.
Greer, now 4-2 on the season, stopped Eastside on the opening drive in just 3 plays, then got a 40 yard punt return from Chad Cartwright to set them up at the Eagle 22. Three plays later, Arthur Sitton Sitton skated 14 yards for a score. The extra point was blocked and it was 6-0. After and Eastside turnover, quarterback Travis Gilliam hooked up with Tyrone Williams on a 57 yard scoring strike to make it 12-0. On the first play of the 2nd quarter, with Greer looking at a 2nd & 8, threw an 8 yard completion to Cartwright, but the senior reciever slipped the tackle, and went 64 yards for another score, making it 18-0. Four minutes later, Greer would put together it's longest drive of the night, a seven play drive totaling 65 yards, the final play a 13 yard pass from Gilliam to Williams. Daniel Fiske added the PAT to make it 25-0.
Once again, it only took good defense to get the ball back quickly, and Greer would score again, getting a 26 yard touchdown pass from Gilliam to Cartwright. The extra point pushed the score to 32-0, but on the extra point Greer tackle William Phillips broke his leg. He remained on the field for about 20 minutes while EMS got him ready to transport to the hospital. Phillips was forced into a starting role two weeks ago when Devon Dawson tore his ACL in the Berea game. Post game reports are that Phillips will have surgery this weekend on the leg, and if all goes well, he should be able to have a good recovery.
After that, the Jackets couldn't seem to shake the cobwebs, and Eastside put together three scores. The first one came with just 33 seconds to go in the half, as QB Will Bateman threw 25 yards to Drew Davies. That made it 32-6 at the half. Eastside would move it to the GHS 7 yard line in the 3rd quarter, but the Jackets held on 4th down. They would turn it right back to Eastside on an interception, but would regain the ball again, on the next play, as Alan Shokes recovered a fumble.
But, Eastide would finally crack the end zone again, as Bateman would pass to Justin Gilliard to make it 32-13. They would score once more on a 90 yard punt return, as Keiron Williams daringly scooped up a bouncing ball inside his 10 yard line, had it stripped, picked it up again, and took it the distance. At 32-20, the Eagles would attempt an on-sides kick, but Cedrick McGowan recovered it for Greer, who then ran out most of the final five minutes off the clock to secure the 32- 20 win. Greer moves to 1-0 in the Enoree River Conference to keep up with Clinton & Clover, who also started the conference race with wins.
Greer Coach Travis Perry was pleased that his team got the win, but was again dissapointed with his club's ability to finish strong. "I really thought we came out and played well the first half, but we've got to play four quarters, not two. But I give our team credit, and I'm proud of them that they got a win. We threw the ball much better tonight. Very good in the first half, then we drop a touchdown pass in the 2nd half. We can't miss on plays like that. That would probably have put the game away, but then we end up having to hold them off there at the end." The coach was concerned about the injury to Phillips. "That's a fine young man. I hate it for our football team, but I hate it for him even more. Hopefully, the surgery will get him back on the road to a complete recovery."
Greer will go back on the road again next week, traveling just accross town to face the Riverside Warriors. Riverside dropped a road game tonight to Clover 51-23. Air time on WPJM AM 800 will be 6:00 with the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show and the kickoff is at 7:30. Come out & see the Jackets, bring your headset, and cheer for Greer!

Fast start propels Jackets past Pickens

Greer Quarterback Travis Gilliam scores one of his 3 touchdowns.....

Greer holds off Blue Flame 21-18.....

It sure looked like it was going to be easy. Two years ago, Greer came into Bruce Field in Pickens in the first round of the playoffs and ran the Blue Flame out of their own stadium with a 35-0 win. After six minutes of tonight's game, it looked to be much of the same thing. Greer had scored 14 points. The first touchdown was a 25 yard Travis Gilliam run on the first drive of his first start at quarterback of his high school career. The second score was another run by Gilliam, this one from 15 yards. In all the Jackets gained 146 yards on just 10 plays. The defense had given up 11 yards to Pickens & highly touted quarterback R.J. Webb. Then the game began to turn just a bit. A questionable call ruled a fumble on a punt return, and a Greer fake punt that Pickens stopped gave the Blue Flame new life. Webb would hit Trey Singleton with a 12 yard scoring pass with 7:48 to play before the half. Greer would drive to the Pickens 15 just before the half, but was unable to get points before the clock expired.
Arthur Sitton, who came into the game with over 870 rushing yards for the season, had over 100 in the first half and topped the 1000 yard mark early in the 3rd quarter, was largely shut down by Pickens in the 2nd half. Meanwhile, Pickens kept chiiping away. They got a 38 yard FG at the 5:16 mark of the 3rd to make it 14-10 Greer, and actually got it to the Greer 20 with a first down late in the quarter, but a series of penalties and a 14 yard sack, left the Blue Flame facing a 3rd & 52 from their own 38. After the ensuing punt was downed at the Greer 18, Gilliam ripped off his 3rd touchdown run of the night, an 85 yarder that seemed to secure the Greer win.
But Pickens wouldn;t go away. They put together a nice drive, constanlty finding seams in Greer's zone defense to get downfield in a hurry. From midfield, a potential interception bounced off a Jacket at the 20, and was caught by Trey Singleton at the Greer 18. Casey Murray scored from a yard out, then Webb threw to Singleton for a 2 point conversion to make it 21-18 with 8:17 to play. After forcing a Greer punt in just three downs, the Blue Flame mounted one last drive, passing into Greer territory late, but as Webb threw deep, Justin Anderson intercepted it for the Jackets, returned it to the Pickens 5 yard line, and Greer ran out the clock.
Greer improves to 3-2 on the season, while Pickens is now also 3-2. The Jackets return home to Dooley Field next week for the first time since August 27 to host the Eastside Eagles. This will kick off the Enoree River Conference schedule for Greer. One note, last year Greer also had a 3-2 record after five games, and went on to post a 13-2 record and win the AAA State Championship.
The Poinsett Grocery Players of the game were Travis Gilliam on offense, and Justin Anderson on defense. Radio airtime will be 6:00 for the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show and the kickoff is at 7:30. The internet broadcast on this web site will begin at approximately at 7:00. Come out & support the Jackets as they return to Dooley field next week!

Jackets run past Berea.....
Greer pounds out 279 yards rushing to get back on track with 36-7 win over 'Dogs.....

The Greer Yellow Jackets needed a win. It had been two long weeks plus a day since they walked off Nixon Field after their second straight loss to a #1 ranked team. An open date and a hurricane kept them from doing what they really wanted to do, and that was get back out on the field. But when they finally did, the Jackets would march it straight down and score on the opening drive, then score again moments later on the Berea kickoff return to take a 13-0 lead, and cruise to a 36-7 victory Saturday afternoon in Greenville.
Arthur Sitton, who came into the game battling Trvelers Rest's Will Ford for the state rushing lead, gained 220 yards on 31 carries. He also scored a touchdown, a one yard run on 4th down, as Greer scored early to take a 7-0 lead. On the ensuning kick return Chris Owens jarred the ball loose from Berea's Xavier Woody, and Justin Anderson scooped it up & returned it 25 yards for a touchdown. Berea would get back in the game on their next posession though, after converting a 4th & 1 at the 42, freshman quarterback Sam Clayton hit James Goss with a 56 yard touchdown strike. Two Greer defenders colided onthe play, giving Goss a free run to the end zone. With 6:06 to play in the first half, Daniel Fiske hit a 30 yard field goal to give Greer a 16-7 halftime lead.
Greer would start the 2nd half as well as they did the first, as the defense forced Berea to punt after three plays, and the offense, quarterbacked in the 2nd half by Travis Gilliam, would march it downfield and score, as Gilliam scored from 3 yards out to make it 23-7. Chad Frier had been the Greer QB in the first half. The Jackets would score again, set up by good defense. With Berea kicking from their own end zone, Chad Cartwright returned the Bulldog punt 26 yards for a touchdown to make it 29-7 with only seconds to go in the 3rd quarter. Greer would finish off the scoring with a sweep by Tyrone Williams from eleven yards out. Fiske's Pat made it 36-7. The Jackets missed on a great chance on their next posession, as they made another good special teams play. With Berea punting from their 10, Dominique Smith's low punt struck a teammate in the back, and Chris Owens nabbed it at the 26 and returned it to the Bulldog 10. But a bobbled snap on a 22 yard field goal attempt foiled that try.
The Poinsett Grocery Players of the game were Chris Owens on defense, and center Scott Wentzky on offense. The Jackets, now 2-2 on the season, travel to Pickens next week. The Blue Flame defeated Travelers Rest this afternoon 24-14. Just last week, that T.R. team had whipped Berea 30-0.
Radio airtime will be 6:00 for the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, and kickoff is set for 7:30. The game will also be broadcast on 99.5 FM in & around the stadium in Pickens, so be sure to take your headset radios to the game.

Byrnes topples Jackets 50-20
     Byrnes takes advantage of six Greer turnovers to outscore Jackets 23-6 in second half.....
      For the second straight week, the Greer Yellow Jackets faced the #1 team in the state. Last week it was 3A Greenville, and tonight it was 4A Byrnes. And for the second straight week, the Jackets took the game competitively into the 4th quarter, before bowing out in games that were closer than the final scores would indicate. Against the Rebels, Greer had posession of the ball deep in Rebel territory three times and got no points, yet only trailed 27-14, again with the ball at midfield in the 3rd quarter. But an interception and ensuing touchdown drive put Byrnes up 33-14. From there the Jacket offense would lock up til late in the game and Byrnes would pull away for a 50-20 win.
      The Rebels took the opening kickoff and went 80 yards, scoring just 2:12 into the game as quarterback Will Korn scored on a 7 yard run to make it 7-0 after the PAT. Greer then drove to the Byrnes 31, but the first of seven turnovers by Greer, an interception by Prince Miller & return to the Jacket 31 gave Byrnes great position, and Renaldo Hunter would take it in on a sweep to make it 14-0. The Jackets, however would show that they would compete, putting together a nice drive, ending with a 5 yard run by Arthur Sitton. Daniel Fiske brought Greer to within 14-7 after his extra point kick. It only took Byrnes 1:12 to score again, as they would go 79 yards in 6 plays, the last a 15 yard run by Korn.
      Then Greer would go for it fourth and three from the Byrnes 32, and Sitton was stopped inches short. Byrnes woudl quickly score moving downfield, and a 23 yard pass from Korn to Hunter put them up 27-7 with 6:01 to go in the 1st half, and with under a minute to go the Rebels attempted a fake punt on 4th & 6, but the Jackets stuffed it. They would score themselves in just two plays, with Tyrone Williams grabbing a 44 yard pass from Chad Fryar to amek it 27-14 at the half.
      The Jackets recieved the opening kickoff in the 2nd half, picked up a first down near midfield, but the interception and score by the Rebels kind of separated the two teams at 33-14. Rodriquez Williams then scored from 10 yards to make it 40-14, but Greer would not quit. Fryar found Chad Cartwright on a 14 yard completion, and Cartwright showed some tough running to get in the end zone. That made it 40-20. The Rebels settled for a field goal with just :58 to play to make it 43-20 after having 1st & goal at the Greer 5. Again, the Jackets didn't stop going for it, driving to the Byrnes 13 with :21 to go, but the Donald Hayes of the Rebels picked off a pass near the sideline and raced 85 yards to score with just 8 seconds to go. The extra point made the final score Byrnes 50 Greer 20.
      Coach Travis Perry was pleased with some of the things he saw on the field, and was pleased with the effort, but said overall the team can do far better. "We didn't play real well for the seoond week in a row. There's no way we can turn the ball over like that against great teams like Greenville & Byrnes and win football games. We have to get better, and we will." Greer now takes a week off with an open date, and will next play on September 17 against the Berea Bulldogs in Greenville.

Greenville ends Jackets win streak
Red Raiders big second quarter dooms Greer as Greenville wins 48-27.....
      It has been a long 9 months for the Greenville Red Raiders since they lost to the Greer Yellow Jackets in the 2003 Upstate Semi-Finals. Greer ended the Red Raiders perfect season with a 35-34 overtime win last season, and since that night, many Greenville players, coaches & fans have pointed towards tonight's game. Greer led the Raiders 12-7 with under 2 minutes to go in the 1st quarter, but Greenville would score 27 more points before halftime to take a commanding 34-12 lead. A fumble by the Jackets on their 1st posession of the 2nd half that was returned for a touchdown stretched that lead to 41-12 just 17 seconds into the 2nd half. With that Greenville had put up 34 points in just over a quarter, sending Greer to their 1st loss in since week 5 of the 2003 season, ending an 11 game win streak. The loss also broke a 6 game streak Greer had over Greenville.
      The Raiders opened the scoring with a 38 yard TD drive, capped by a 15 yard run by Travil Jamison to make it 7-0. Greer would bounce back right away, as Tyrone Williams returned the kickoff 92 yards for a TD. Daniel Fiske's extra point was left, making it 7-6. The Jackets would score again soon, this time as Darren Moore scored on 4th & goal from the one. QB Chad Fryer hit Travis Gilliam with two long completions to put the Jackets in range. That made it 12-7, as the 2 point try was no good. That's when Greenville took off.
      Greenville QB Jordan Sorrells found Corey Anderson wide open for a 52 yard scoring strike to regain the lead at 14-12, then led his team on two long touchdown drives of 97 & 92 yards, both culminating with Marcus Boswell runs from 3 & 5 yards. Greer had driven deep in Raider territory prior to both of those scores, but couldn't finish it off, and had to punt. Then Greenville scored again with :50 remaining in the half on a 6 yard run by Jamison on an option pitch from Sorrells, making the halftime score 34-12.
      Greer actually had a great chance to score late in the half, as Arthur Sitton broke a long run inside the Greenville 5, apparently getting bumped out of bounds with :01 on the clock. But the official ruled that Sitton was tackled in bounds, so when the ball was spotted, the Jackets couldn't get off another play.
      After the fumble return in the 3rd quarter by Greenville's Preston Thomas, the Jackets settled down and got 15 yard TD pass from Fryer to Sitton, and later got a 14 yard TD run by Sitton. Between those two scores, Sorrells once again found Anderson loose for a 25 yard touchdown toss. Greer again drove to the Greenville 1 yard line with two minutes to go, but a Greenville interception stopped that, leaving the final score Greenville 48 Greer 27.
      The Poinsett Grocery Players of the game for Greer, were QB Chad Fryer on offense, and DL Darren Moore on defense.
      Next week Greer travels to Nixon Field in Duncan to take on the Byrnes Rebels, 74-7 winners over Eastside tonight. Byrnes is the two-time defending 4A Division II State Champions. The Rebels now have a 3 game win streak over Greer, the last two, hotly contested games that came down to the final minutes.
      Please come out & cheer for the Jackets, but if you can't you can listen live here on yellowjacketsports.net, or in the Upstate on WPJM AM-800. The BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show starts at 6:00 followed by the kickoff at 7:30.

Jackets take out Hillcrest in season opener
     Greer whips Rams 49-7 to get first win....
      The Greer Yellow Jackets got off to a great start to the 2004 season by defeating the Hillcrest Rams at Dooley Field. The defending 3A State Champions got a 354 yard, 5 touchdown rushing effort from Arthur Sitton, and Tyrone Williams had a fumble recovery and two interceptions on defense. Those two were named Poinsett Grocery Players of the Game for their efforts.
      Greer srarted quickly, taking the opening kickoff, and going 80 yards in just 3 plays, the last a 73 yard run by Sitton on 3rd and 3. Daniel Fiske added his 1st of 6 extra points to make it 7-0. After Williams fumble recovery at the Ram 38, Sitton scored from a yard out on the 9th play of the drive to make it 14-0. And after a good defensive stand, Chad Cartwright returned a Hillcrest punt 56 yards to make it 21-0, just six minutes into the game. But the defenses played shutout ball the rest of the half, keeping the score at 21-0.
      In the 2nd half, Hillcrest would get a nice drive of 74 yards and a 1 yard touchdown run by Trevor Hoffman to get within 21-7, but Sitton lashed back moments later with an 82 yard run to make it 28-7. Then two interceptions, one by Detre Ellis, and the other by Williams, set up a Sitton 20 yard run, and a Williams 8 yard reception from Sophomore quarterback Chad Fryar. Those score made it 42-7 at the end of three quarters. Sitton ended the scoring with a 6 yard run, capping an 80 yard drive that took just 4 plays. Williams got his 2nd interception with under a minute to play in the end zone to stop a Hillcrest scoring drive.
      Next week the Greenville Red Raiders visit Dooley Field in a rematch of last year's Upstate Semi-Finals, when Greer won a 35-34 overtime thriller. We hope you'll come out and be a part of a great atmosphere. Bring a black, gold, or white towel to wave, along with a cowbell or other noisemaker. Let's make Dooley Field rock as the Jackets take the field!
      Radio airtime will be 6:00 with the BB&T Yellow Jacket Tailgate Show, and kickoff is 7:30. The game will also be available on the internet from this web site, so let your out of town friends know that they can listen to Yellow Jacket football no matter where they are!
