Silver Bluff's RJ Stallings shines in Bulldog win



Wednesday September 18, 2013

Petticoat Junction, SC--Usually once or twice a year we see a performance on the field that kind of blows you away. A kid who has one of those games where every time he touches the ball, he finds the endzone. That was Friday night and the player was RJ Stallings.

The Silver Bluff senior scored four first half touchdowns against South Aiken and it was the equivilant to the football hat trick. His first, this 51 yard run. Then, on the receiving end of this 23 yard pass play. But he wasn't done yet. Just a minute later, he picked off a pass and took it to the house on a 45 yard pick six. Stallings has been in this program since he was a freshman and pictures the game before it happens.

"We sit in the lockerroom, we just sit there and focus" said RJ Stallings "That's all we do. I just pictured it. I was just thinking about big plays, thinking about my energy, keeping myself cool and just playing the next play and just playing as a team, that's all"

When you play for Silver Bluff you know you're going to play both ways and most likely on special teams and they are one of the top conditioned teams around. For Stallings, it's just the hard work the team puts in that pays off in victory.
