Gamecock commits Luke Doty, Eric Shaw, Marshawn Llloyd shine in teams’ victories

In a matchup of future Division I quarterbacks, future South Carolina Gamecock Luke Doty shined again.

Doty threw five touchdown passes as defending state champion Myrtle Beach defeated Carolina Forest, 43-28, on Friday night. Both teams entered the game unbeaten and boasting Division I quarterback commits. Carolina Forest had East Carolina commit Mason Garcia.

Doty finished with 257 yards on 18-of-28 passing. His five TD passes give him 50 in his career in just a little over a year as starting QB.

Doty will face fellow USC commit Tonka Hemingway and Conway next week.

While Doty shined on offense, South Carolina commit Eric Shaw had a strong game on defense for Reeltown High School in Alabama. Shaw picked off two passes including one in the fourth quarter to Lafayette, 21-14. The win helped Reeltown earn a spot in the postseason.

On Saturday, USC running back commit Marshawn Lloyd scored on a 75-yard run on first play of the game and two more TDs in Dematha (Md.) 42-0 win over Cleveland St. Ignatius (Ohio), 42-0. Lloyd finished with 161 yards and three touchdowns on 10 carries.
