Screven County routes Harlem; Gamecock playmakers everywhere

Armani Bunbury (middle), Erick Roberson (right), Kim Hunter (left), and CJ Wright (back) make a loaded Screven County backfield.


Five different Screven County players reached the end zone Friday as the Gamecocks routed Harlem 35-0 at home to improve to 6-0 overall and 3-0 in region play. Class AA's #3 ranked team is loaded with playmakers, and none or more difficult to stop than 285 pound fullback/defensive tackle CJ Wright, who punished the Harlem defense throughout the evening and scored a third quarter touchdown. Wright will play at Georgia Southern next season:



6'3" 195 pound receiver Tyquan Johnson was as impressive as Wright. The future South Carolina Gamecock caught 5 passes from quarterback Armani Bunbury, including a 6 yard touchdown strike that gave the Gamecocks a 21-0 first half lead.



Bunbury, a threat to run and pass the ball, started the scoring with a long touchdown pass to Johnathan Roberts on Screven County's first possession. The quarterback with all the moves would throw for another score, and he notched the Gamecocks final touchdown in the third quarter when he faked everybody out, including me and my camera, and scored untouched and almost unnoticed after a perfectly executed bootleg.

Armani Bunbury threw for 2 touchdowns and rushed for another in Friday's win.


Bunbury is one of the playmakers shown in this highlight reel from Friday's win. Also shown are running backs Erick Roberson and Kim Hunter, as well as linebackers Kashawn Robinson and Treston Jamison.



Friday's game made me look forward to the November 3rd showdown between Screven County and Jefferson County, class AA's #7 ranked team. The Warriors (6-0, 3-0) defeated Glenn Hills 49-8 Friday. When these two teams meet in Sylvania, a region title will almost certainly be at stake.
