Best Underclassmen : Davis Guyton (2019) and Jordan Jones (2020) – Trinity Byrnes
Guyton is the ideal pick and pop forward for the Saints with a soft touch from behind the arch. Guyton takes close to 90% of his shots come from behind the 3 point line.

Jones came over from nearby South Florence HS this off season and quarterbacked the football team to a SCISA 2-A State Championship. Jones 5’8 left-handed guard at times needs to understand the situation on the floor better and not get to to fancy with the ball.
Expect to these teams to make a run to Sumter and play the might Spartanburg Day Griffins in the SCISA State Championship Game next March.
