The South Carolina Gamecocks capped off their spring practice period under the lights in the annual Garnet v. Black spring game at Williams-Brice Stadium with a record crowd of a reported 51,000 in attendance
The Black team looked crisp with Spencer Rattler and Juice Wells continuing to connect with each other on big plays. On the opening drive, 3rd and 12, Rattler found Wells for a 55 yard gain. The drive was finished off with a 4th and goal touchdown pass to new tight end transfer, Trey Knox. Rattler and Knox seemed to have built good chemistry in the short period they’ve been together. Knox, who previously played for new offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains at Arkansas will be a red zone threat this season for the Gamecocks.
Other notable performances include that of Elijah Davis who had a sack and fumble recovery for the Garnet team. Freshman QB LaNorris Sellers from South Florence High School may have been the best offensive player on either team last night. He made smart decisions to run the ball when needed and looked polished as a passer, well ahead of schedule for a true freshman.
In a spring game first, the game went into overtime and the Black team was able to hold off the Garnet team as a pass from Sellers was dropped in the end zone. RB DJ Twitty ended the game on a 3 yard scamper into the end zone.
Overall, the Gamecocks escaped the spring relatively healthy and look to continue upon last season’s success.
