An offensive player from Ashley Ridge and a defensive player from Summerville have been recognized as Palmetto Champions by the South Carolina Football Coaches Association.
Ashley Ridge receiver Derrick Salley and Summerville defensive lineman Jacob Cotterill were among the athletes the association honored as being elite performers in the categories of offense, defense, special teams and line play.
Salley was named the Palmetto Champions 5A Lower State Receiver of the Year. He had 108 receptions for 2,027 yards and 20 touchdowns this season, thus averaging 184.3 yards per game. That puts him 53rd in the nation, all-time, for most receiving yards in a single season. He also rushed for seven TDs and scored on a 96-yard kickoff return.
After being named the Region 7-AAAAA Football Player of the Year, he was named to the South Carolina Football Coaches Association All-State Team and selected to participate in the 2023 Touchstone Energy Bowl all-star game.
“Offensively if we ever got in trouble we knew we could go to Derrick and he would bail us out,” Ashley Ridge coach Jeff Tate said. “He could explode regardless of where he was on the field and is such a gifted young man. He is tall, fast and really strong. He is football savvy, knows the game and plays with confidence. One thing that stands out to me is just how competitive he is. He broke all our records in the weight room as far as points for the things we test our guys in.”
Cotterill was named the Palmetto Champions 5A Lower State Lineman of the Year. He finished the season with 103 tackles, including 25 tackles for a loss. He had eight sacks and 20 QB hurries, broke up three passes, recovered three fumbles and blocked a kick.
He also received both All-Region and All-State honors.
“Jacob was a three-year starter who meant a lot to our team,” Summerville coach Ian Rafferty said. “He is a leader and one of the hardest workers we have. He is a tough, physical kid and he brought that mentality to our defense. He always put in the work in the offseason and did everything we asked him to.”
Summerville senior living facility to close; residents have to vacate

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (WCBD) – Residents at a Summerville senior living community are having to make other arrangements to find a new home during the holiday season.
Damien Rend’s mother lives at the Retreat at Summerville – he said she was recently given a letter stating that she will have to leave the property because it is being sold.
Rend told News 2 that he’s not so much concerned about the fact that the property was sold, but it’s the timing of what is happening that has bothered him the most.
“My mom is in her late 70s. She unfortunately has reached a stage in life where she can no longer self-manage,” he said. “And so early in 2023, we reached out to move her into The Retreat at Summerville.”
Rend said he has been very happy with her care there. Then came the end of November.
“In a letter dated November 29 we were given a notice, presumably from Phoenix, the senior living facility that owns The Retreat at Summerville,” he said.
That letter stated the property was being sold and that all residents would have to be out by January 5.
Rend says it is not easy to find a facility like this, and it is even more difficult to have to do that during the holidays.
The notice said residents will be given a $500 credit on their bill, and prorated fees based on the day the resident moves out.
“You throw somebody like that that level of uncertainty — that’s just morally unconscionable. In my opinion, it may be the legal thing to do but it’s certainly morally unconscionable.”
He said if they had even known a few months ago, residents wouldn’t have to be going through this over the holidays.
Phoenix Senior Living, the company that runs the facility, sent News 2 a statement:
“The owner of the Retreat of Summerville made the difficult decision to sell the community and notified us that the buyer does not plan to operate it as a senior living community. We realize this transition profoundly impacts our residents and their families, especially during the holiday season. The health and safety of our residents is our top priority. As the manager of this community, we provided the proper notification of the owner’s decision to our current residents and local and state agencies. Additionally, we partnered with local senior living communities to assist families with finding alternative placements. We are committed to ensuring a smooth transition and will continue to provide all needed care services until all residents are successfully relocated.”

Construction has begun on Marlowe Summerville, a 278-unit rental complex on a 27.9-acre site in Summerville.
It is the first foray into South Carolina for The Resmark Companies, a Los Angeles-based real estate investment management company, which is partnering with Greystar Real Estate Partners, a Charleston-headquartered investment and development company with offices across the country and on four continents.
Marlowe is a Greystar brand marketed as “suburban luxury living.” The Summerville project on N. Main Street and College Park Road is the first Marlowe brand in the state, according to a news release.
“We are excited to make our first investment in the Charleston MSA with Greystar, a long-term and trusted partner,” Ziv Cohen, chief investment officer of Resmark, said in the news release. “Having worked together for a decade, we recognize that Greystar brings rigorous attention to design, quality and detail that results in great consumer response and community acceptance.”
Pre-leasing at Marlowe Summerville is expected to begin next fall, according to Stephen O’Neil, senior vice president for investments at Resmark. The community will offer amenities including a clubhouse equipped with a fitness center and co-working spaces, resort-style pool, grilling stations, pickleball courts, dog park and outdoor dog wash, as well as a grand central amenity lawn with shuffleboard, cornhole and a community garden.
O’Neil said in the release that Resmark was drawn to the site because of “Summerville’s location as a top-tier suburban market near Charleston, its attractive demographics, access to commuting routes and rapidly expanding employer base are all factors that underscore a strong outlook for multifamily development.”
The company also pointed to the site’s proximity to Camp Hall 10 miles away, a 7,000-acre commerce park that has attracted nearly $5 billion in investment and projected to create as many as 1,500 jobs for workers who will need a place to live, the release said.

“Summerville is a highly desirable submarket twenty miles northwest of downtown Charleston that is attracting young professionals and families drawn to its quality of life and historic charm,” Ben Liebetrau, managing director of development for Greystar Development and Construction Services. “As we are headquartered in Charleston, we are extremely pleased to bring Greystar’s Marlowe brand to our backyard.”
Of the 278 rental homes, 263 will be constructed in 10 separate three-story walk-up garden-style buildings. Fifteen two-story townhomes, each with a fenced yard and attached garage, will be located in two separate buildings. Ranging in size from 560 square feet to 2,114 square feet, the project unit mix will include 16 studios, 127 one-bedrooms, 118 two-bedrooms and 17 three-bedrooms, the release stated. Each unit will offer features such as granite countertops, wood-like luxury vinyl flooring and stainless-steel appliances.
Resmark is a real estate investment manager that provides capital to homebuilders, land developers and multifamily developers across the country.
