Six future South Carolina Gamecock football players were picked for the 2019 South Carolina-North Carolina Shrine Bowl.
Rosters for the game, to be held Dec. 21 at Wofford College, were released Sunday.
The future Gamecocks picked on the S.C. team were Myrtle Beach QB Luke Doty, Calhoun County OL Tyshawn Wannamaker, Sumter defensive back O’Donnell Fortune, Abbeville offensive lineman Trai Jones and Conway’ defensive lineman Tonka Hemingway.
Doty and Hemingway are two of the top prospects in the state according to 247Sports. Doty, a quarterback, is ranked No. 2 and Hemingway, a defensive lineman, is third. Hemingway’s brother, Junior, played in the all-star game in 2006.
“I have seen that kid (Doty) for last three years, it seems like eight,” said SC Shrine Bowl head coach Dean Boyd, who coached against Doty the previous three years at Marlboro County. “We blocked their field goal attempt and Doty came and tackled our guy all the way at the three-yard line. And guy was pretty fast. He could have quit on the play but that is the type of kid with character you want on the team.”
Wannamaker is fifth ranked player in the state and Jones is 10th.
Da’Quon Stewart of North Mecklenburg made it for the North Carolina squad.
