Prior to this season, the Academic Magnet football program had won just 10 games over the last five years. That includes just four victories over the last three seasons.

The last time the Raptors posted a winning record was in 2015, when they went 8-3.

In defiance of those trendlines, the Raptors are off to a 3-0 start this season under first-year head coach Mitch White, a Lowcountry veteran who began coaching in 1983 at the old St. Andrews High School.

White, an assistant at Academic Magnet for the last three seasons, took over as head coach this summer when former coach Steve Kamp took a coaching job in Columbia.

“It’s been a lot of fun to see these kids experience some success,” White said. “We know the schedule will get tougher as we move forward, and we know we have to keep working. We don’t want to be satisfied with winning three games. The kids are responding and working hard and having fun.”

Academic Magnet is ranked as the nation’s second-best high school and is the top high school in South Carolina. As White says, kids attend the school for academics. But getting involved in athletics, he says, aids in the total high school experience.

“Friday nights during the football season are special, and we encourage our kids to get involved once they establish themselves academically,” White said. “Our numbers are way up. We started the season with 40 kids.

“We had some seniors come out for the first time that have been solid contributors. We also have a good group of freshmen. With no jayvee program, we get them as ninth-graders and our hope is that they develop and stick with it.”

Among the team leaders offensively this season are quarterback Tate Brown and receivers Ransom Hudson and Tate Griffin, all seniors. On the defensive side, top performers include linebackers Sammy Cooper, a senior, and junior Jackson Etheridge. Senior free safety Grayson Gregg also rates as key leader.

Patriot problems?

Another one of the more surprising stories of the early part of the 2022 football season is Fort Dorchester’s 1-2 start, including back-to-back shutout losses. One would have to go back a long time to find the last time Fort Dorchester has lost consecutive games in a season. And just as rare is two shutouts in the same season.

Fort Dorchester head coach Steve LaPrad intentionally toughened his team’s non-region schedule this season, and losses in the last two weeks have come to powerhouse programs from other states. Two weeks ago, the Patriots were shut out, 28-0, by Grayson High of Loganville, Georgia, one of the true dominant teams in the Peach State.

Last Saturday, Fort Dorchester lost 31-0 to Clearwater International Christian Academy, a top private school program in Florida. Clearwater’s roster is comprised of players from several states and a bevy of players from Canada.

“Both teams were good, but I thought if we had taken advantage of some early scoring opportunities last week, we could have won that game,” LaPrad said. “Grayson, they were very good. We could play them 10 times and lose 10 times.”

Despite the lack of recent success, and with a game at Gaffney coming next week, LaPrad does not regret the tougher schedule.

“The biggest thing now is just our confidence,” the coach said. “Our guys are a little shell-shocked. We gotta get their heads back. We’re a young football team. I think it will help us in the long run, but we have to get them back on track.”

Fort Dorchester has lost only once to a Lowcountry team since 2015, that coming in overtime to Summerville in 2018. The last time Fort Dorchester was shut out twice in a season was 2014 when the Patriots lost a regular-season game to Goose Creek and a playoff game to Hillcrest. The only other shutout since 2010 came to Dutch Fork in the 2019 playoffs.

Fort Dorchester will play at Berkeley this Friday night.

Goose Creek mayor defends development after resident concerns

She describes her neighborhood as “pretty quiet,” besides occasional traffic.She found out about a planned development that could be built right next to her home and was taken aback.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Goose Creek resident Lisa Berry has lived in the West Greenview Acres neighborhood since 2004. She describes her neighborhood as “pretty quiet,” besides occasional traffic.

She found out about a planned development that could be built right next to her home and was taken aback. To her understanding, a road was going to run adjacent to her home and go to Red Bank Road, and a playground with a parking lot was going to be built on the other side of her property. She said those plans were concerning.

She posted in a Facebook group for Goose Creek residents, trying to inform her neighbors about what was going on. She said she was inspired to speak up; and said there should be no more construction.

“I was driving down Red Bank Road, and by the rural fire department, they have a marquee; it’s a flashing sign that changes,” Berry said. “It said, ‘if not you, then who?”

Berry’s post got the attention of Mayor Greg Habib, who responded in his own post in the group. He said he felt the need to give an explanation about what their processes are, what they are trying to accomplish, and how growth is important.

Berry met with the mayor Wednesday morning, and she discovered that there was an updated plan. She said that now instead of a road next to her house, it is proposed to be a walking trail, and the playground plans have changed as well. Habib said it is going to be a mix of townhomes and single-family homes with a commercial element on Red Bank Road.

One of the concerns that Berry had was that the property floods. Habib said the only way the flooding problems are going to go away is if someone develops the property properly.

“I knew it had a flooding problem,” Habib said. “We told the developer when he first came to us, you have to address flooding in this area if you’re gonna do anything here, and what the developer has proposed is a stormwater plan that actually takes water from off the property onto his own property to mitigate the flooding problems that are there now.”

Now Berry said she is not opposed to development but wants it to be done in a smart way.

“We have to change,” Berry said. “We can’t just stay the same. I just want it to be an informed decision where all citizens understand what’s going on and can voice their concerns, and if we don’t share that information then people are left out.”

It is not the first time that development concerns have been expressed in rapidly growing Goose Creek, or in the Lowcountry. Goose Creek is now the 8th largest city in South Carolina.

“We’re 47,000 people,” Habib said. “We are not a small town in small-town America anymore.”

Habib said he often hears concerns about traffic issues. He said the greatest tool to reduce traffic is economic development and putting people and businesses closer together.

“We got traffic here,” Habib said. “How do you mitigate that? Well, understanding that not building anymore is not an option, so how do you then mitigate it there is your plan for it, you do it right, and you do it in a way that makes sense.”

Habib said there are over 5,000 homes entitled to go up in the city. Habib said some of those are going to create more traffic than others because they are on the outskirts of the city. Until there is commercial development there, those people will have to drive into the main commercial section of the city to get what they need. He said they need to get commercial development out to those areas as fast as they can to mitigate the traffic.

“If we’re gonna build houses, which we know we have to, we’re going to insist developers to build communities,” Habib said.

Habib said they cannot sit by as development happens. Instead, they need to participate in it and make it look like what they want it to be.

There will be a public hearing regarding the aforementioned planned development on July 5 at 6 p.m. at City Hall.

Proposed ordinance would allow Goose Creek residents to keep chickens

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Cayce Giddens has lived in Goose Creek for fifteen years. She said she and her family were getting stressed about the rising prices of groceries, inflation, and food shortage issues. So, they started talking about getting chickens to help ease that stress.“We talked about having chickens, and when we looked into what the city says about it, we found out they’re not allowed at all in Goose Creek, and that was shocking to find out,” Giddens said.Giddens started talking to some of her n...

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - Cayce Giddens has lived in Goose Creek for fifteen years. She said she and her family were getting stressed about the rising prices of groceries, inflation, and food shortage issues. So, they started talking about getting chickens to help ease that stress.

“We talked about having chickens, and when we looked into what the city says about it, we found out they’re not allowed at all in Goose Creek, and that was shocking to find out,” Giddens said.

Giddens started talking to some of her neighbors and decided to start an online petition to try to get the City of Goose Creek to allow residents to have chickens. As of Monday morning, the petition had almost 300 signatures.

“We’re stressed out about food and providing for our families, and that chickens was an easy way to at least have those eggs in the background for their calorie content and their protein and just wanting to have that as an extra staple to supplement our groceries,” Giddens said.

She said the concerns she’s been hearing on the other side of the issue are about cleanliness.

“I think an ordinance is the best of both worlds,” Giddens said. “It gives people who want to own chickens that security of having that food, but it also gives people who don’t want to own chickens or worried about it a recourse to handle that if somebody’s not taking care of their property.”

According to the proposed ordinance, people cannot have hens without first obtaining an approved application and an annual compliance inspection and fee payment. Under the ordinance, roosters would not be allowed. One chicken per 2,500 square feet would be allowed, with a maximum of 4 chickens maximum regardless of lot size. Hens would not be allowed to be raised for commercial purposes.

The proposed ordinance says animal control or code enforcement officers may enter and inspect properties containing coops to investigate potential violations or compliance with the ordinance.

City of Goose Creek Public Information Officer Frank Johnson sent Live 5 News this statement regarding the proposed ordinance:

“At its June 14 meeting, Goose Creek City Council will consider an ordinance that would allow City residents who live in single-family homes to keep up to 4 chickens, depending on property size. The meeting will include discussion about the issue and a first reading vote. A City ordinance would not change or supersede existing HOA guidelines for residences governed by an HOA. Council members were approached by residents who are in favor of such an ordinance earlier this year.”

Council will discuss the proposed changes at Tuesday night’s council meeting at 6 p.m.

Stoplight being designed for busy Goose Creek intersection

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Goose Creek and the South Carolina Department of Transportation are working together to put up a stoplight at St. James Avenue at Myers Road where residents have reported multiple accidents.

There are a few neighborhoods off of that road, and people in the area were excited to hear about the project. The actual project likely won’t be completed until the end of 2023, but the plans are in motion.

Thomas Garter lives nearby and says the sooner a light is put up the better.

“It’s hectic in the morning and the late afternoon coming from work. I have seen several accidents,” Garter said.

SCDOT officials said a traffic analysis found the volume in that area is too high, so a signal has been approved and is in the design phase.

Construction will likely begin in October and could take up to 15 months.

Caleb and Allen are friends who like to play basketball at a nearby church after school, and they say they have seen accidents happen at the intersection, and people often cut through the church parking lot to avoid the line of cars.

“There’s traffic, and every time we play they cut through [the parking lot] instead of waiting. I’ve seen a lot of accidents,” Caleb said.

“The bus will be super late to school due to the accidents,” Allen said.

The department of transportation will build a mast arm style light which will cost between $250,000 and $350,000. SCDOT and Goose Creek have agreed to share the cost with the department of transportation building the standard steel poles for the traffic signals.

The city is interested in having mast arms extend over the intersection to which the signals would be mounted. Goose Creek has agreed to pay for the mast arms.

“I’ve been waiting to see our light here since I was 6, because I’ve lived here for a while with the traffic and accidents. I just hope they get better,” said Caleb.

The project is on Tuesday night’s Goose Creek City Council meeting agenda with the administration department expected to speak on the issue.

Colton Phares hit a pair of field goals as Beaufort shut out Goose Creek, 6-0, on Friday in high school football action.

It was the Eagles’ second win of the season.

Both of Phares’ field goals came in the first quarter. The game was played in rainy conditions as bad weather played a part in most games in the area Friday. .

Goose Creek had a chance to tie or take the lead in the fourth quarter but Beaufort’s defense stopped them inside the 10-yard line with just under six minutes left.

The Eagles picked off a pass to seal it with less than two minutes left.

The Sharks picked up their first victory of the season with their first shutout since 2019.

May River’s last shutout also came against the Jaguars on Oct. 11, 2019. The Sharks had three shutouts that season.

Christian Tilton had three touchdowns including a kickoff return for a touchdown in the Warriors’ victory.

Tilton finished with more than 200 yards rushing.

Bryant Jolly, Javier Jimenez and Alex Mercer also had TD runs for John Paul II.

Wilson quarterback Tremel Echols threw for touchdowns, two to Zandae Butler in the Tigers’ win over the Seahawks.

Teammate Zandae Butler caught two touchdowns passes, and Javion Waiters caught a TD pass and returned a kick for another score.

Owens Bayes had a 55-yard touchdown pass to Jake Higgins for HHI’s only score.

Dylan Clark threw two touchdown passes as the Eagles handed the Falcons their first loss of the season.

HHCA answered when Clark hit Morgan Bedenbaugh to make it 13-6. The Eagles added a safety after a blocked punt to make it 15-6.

Berger also caught two passes for 60 yards and picked off two passes on defense to go along with nine tackles.

Whale Branch football had to forfeit its game against Baptist Hill after an incident happened at school earlier in the day.

On Friday, Beaufort County schools officials received a tip from a student who reported a possible confrontation between other students, according to the Beaufort County Sheriff’s office.

The school was placed in modified lockdown status, which means that teachers and students remained in their classrooms while the tip was investigated.

A search of lockers and backpacks was conducted as a part of the investigation. During the search, a loaded handgun was found in a book bag that was stored in a student’s locker.

The student, a 15-year-old, was detained at the South Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice in Columbia and will be charged with possession of a firearm on school property.

As a result, Whale Branch had to forfeit its game.

The Beaufort Academy and Greenwood Christian contest was canceled by rain.
