Mickey Wilson had a game plan for he and the Myrtle Beach football team’s weekend in Duncan as the squad was once again participating in the annual Palmetto State Showdown 7-on-7 passing tournament at Byrnes High School.
Over the course of the weekend, he expected the Seahawks to lose a game or two. But not in the form or fashion they did to begin Saturday’s round of competition.
Myrtle Beach forfeited its first game of the day after the team’s uniforms were taken from a laundromat near the Spartanburg-area school.
Never miss a local story.
Fortunately, Wilson said the team was able to make due with uniforms purchased at a Walmart nearby.
“Starter and Hanes instead of Nike,” the Myrtle Beach coach joked.
After finishing Friday’s round of competition 3-3-1, Myrtle Beach was 0-4 in the tournament’s final day.
In a weird twist, the Seahawks will return to the Upstate in a little more than a month’s time to open the 2017 high school football season at perennial powerhouse Byrnes.
