Player to Watch (September 21)

Trey Longs

School | Conway

Class | Senior

Position | Defensive end

The scoop | Myrtle Beach’s offense has a different feel than the past several seasons. But the pass-first scheme is predicated on the same thing. The Seahawks overload defensive backfields with plenty of capable receivers and find holes to expose. Longs can play a role in cutting down on that. The Conway defensive end has 35 total tackles, but more importantly, he has six tackles for loss, three sacks and a pair of forced fumbles. If he’s able to get into the Myrtle Beach backfield and get Seahawk quarterback Tyler Keane on the run, it could disrupt an offense that has yet to have a real breakout performance so far this season.
