New (to me) faces dot the landscape during week 1 of Fall League action
Followers of the AugBball Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts have seen my features of Rahim McCorkle (above) of Silver Bluff, and Zayveon Williams (below) of Burke County. During the first session of PQ Sports Fall League play, McCorkle played with tons of competitive spirit and looked like he had plenty of fun as he led his Aiken Select team to wins over Thomson and Evans. And Williams, who I learned sports a 4.0 GPA in our post game interview, scored 6 straight points for Sports Academy South to cut Team Power's second half lead to 1 point with 3 minutes remaining before the Power prevailed.
Silver Bluff and Burke County are teams I didn't see play last season, so McCorkle and Williams are new faces at AugBball. So are several other standouts from Saturday's action at Evans Middle School, including Kevin Williamson (Aiken), Deaontae Carter (Burke County), Emmanuel Bryson (Grovetown), Chance Fugghett (Grovetown), Tim Williamson (Hephzibah), Jonquez Smith (Hephzibah), Dajuan Hill (Aquinas), Gerald Merriweather (Aquinas), Duvall Cardwell (Evans), and Kyle Driscoll (Evans).
