Byrnes and Summerville among Nations Top 25 High School Programs

Byrnes High School in Duncan, SC and Summerville High are ranked #2 and # 21 respectively in USA's Top 25 High School Football rankings.

Byrnes High is led by future Clemson Tiger, Willy Korn, the nations #2 rated QB behind Jimmy Clausen who is committed to Notre Dame. Last year Korn passed for 4,164 yards with 53 TD's, a state record. The 2nd ranked team will host #5 ranked Glades Central in Florida on Saturday which is being aired by ESPN at noon. It's a chance for Byrnes to show the rest of the country and dominating football they have been playing for last few years. They opened this season with another stellar performance in dominating Hartsville 55-20. Byrnes received some bad news this past week when another Clemson commit WR Xavier Dye's transfer was denied and won't be allowed to play for Byrnes. If you've never seen Korn on film or in person this will be your chance to see the arm this kid possesses. He is the nations #1 Dual-threat QB.

Summerville ranked #21, returns 13 starters that finished 2005 with a record of 12-3. They are led by Junior Wideout, AJ Green, who will no doubt be one of the nations top recruits in 2008. In his Sophomore year he amassed 1,501 yards receiving with 12 TDs. They open the season against Berkeley High tomorrow night.

I also have to mention Craig's Independence High in Charlotte NC. That is his alma mater and he was a coach there just 5 years ago. They start the season ranked #18 in the nation. If you haven't heard of them, you will soon, they currently own a 92 game winning streak. Yes that's correct, 92 games or just over 6 years since they last lost and that would be about 6 straight state titles. Chris Leak, the QB of the Florida Gators graduated from this football power.

So keep your ears open for these schools and if you get the chance you should definitely watch them in action.
