Friday Night Lights: Clemson pledges in playoffs

Several of Clemson’s commitments suited up for their teams in the playoffs on Friday night, and they thrived, delivering a clean sweep of wins.

Grayson (Ga.) quarterback Chase Brice threw for 247 yards and four touchdowns while directing an attack that racked up 471 yards of total offense in the team’s 59-21 win versus Woodstock. Brice completed 18 of 23 passes, including the touchdown passes of 49, 37, 9 and 8 yards.

Calhoun (Ga.) linebacker commit Baylon Spector, who plays all over the field for Calhoun, also accounted for four touchdowns in his team’s 41-20 win against Jackson. Spector was equally effective through the air and on the ground at quarterback, eclipsing the century mark in rushing and passing yards while tossing two touchdowns and running for two more.

Trezevant (Tenn.) running back Cordarrian Richardson rumbled for a pair of 32-yard scores in Trezevant’s 28-20 overtime victory at Mitchell. Richardson’s first scoring run marked the first touchdown allowed by Mitchell in the postseason.

Roswell (Ga.) cornerback LeAnthony Williams helped Roswell earn its 26th victory in the last 27 games and 18th consecutive at home dating to 2014, with a 29-12 win over Peachtree Ridge. Roswell’s defense forced eight punts, two turnovers on downs and two interceptions. Williams almost added a third interception when he picked off a pass and returned it for a touchdown, but it was called back due to a block in the back.

Meanwhile, linebacker Justin Foster and Crest (Shelby, N.C.) won its 17th straight playoff game at home, a 60-40 win against East Rowan.

Linebacker Mike Jones and IMG Academy (Bradenton, Fla.) play against Bishop Sullivan Catholic (Virginia Beach, Va.) in a playoff faceoff of two powerhouses at 7 p.m.
