Everyone knows what former Conway standout Bryan Edwards brings to the South Carolina offense.
Making his return to the gridiron after a week’s absence due to injury, the wideout had three catches for 35 yards in the Gamecocks’ 28-14 loss to Georgia on Sunday.
Oddly, he isn’t the Conway alum making the most waves on the college scene as of late.
Cole Watson is making the most of his senior season at Newberry, posting three consecutive solid performances for the Wolves. His latest was certainly his best, though, catching 10 passes for 151 yards in Newberry’s 35-21 win over Mars Hill.
