Williston, SC-- Hard to believe but we are quickly closing in on the start of the high school football season with a handfull of games next friday night. Yes, you heard me right. Tonight, we continue our preview of all the schools with a check of Williston Elko.
Plenty of eyes this year will be on Blue Devil new head coach Dwayne Garrick. Before spending the last handfull of years in the upstate, Garrcik was on the sidelines of barnwell. But the good ole country boy, as he says, has come home. He's got a team that's in pretty good shape.
"I don't think we have one weakness, that's not saying we're great everywhere," said coach Dwayne Garrick. "We don't have a major weakness and we're pretty decent on the offensive front, we're pretty good at the wideouts, the quarterback is a pretty good little player. We have some decent backs and from the defensive standpoint i think we have 11 kids out there that can run and make plays and make tackles"
Williston has a number of returning starters having lost just seven seniors to graduation and Garrick says six or seven wins is a distinct possibility and they just happen to open up against Barnwell.
