Am hearing that Coach McManus from South Pointe has "backed out" (UC words) this morning. If this is true, that opens Union County again. There were two other candidates in the final three but I'm not sure if they will just go to their "2nd choice" IF he would take the job or if they will completely re-open it. If they are in a rush it may end up being Robinson (on staff) that gets it. Will post information as I get it.

Legends of the Fall

In the 1920's, the game was different in South Carolina. There were only about 30 teams in the beginning of that decade according to the South Carolina High School League but there were 121 teams by 1925. Back in the the mid to late 20's, Columbia High ruled the state in football and were the thorn in the side of the Gaffney Indians. The Indians and Columbia met in 1925, 1926, 1927, and 1928 splitting the games 2-2. But in 1929, a young man became a legend for the Indians as Earl Clary had one of the best seasons in SC High School History and capped it off with a two-touchdown performance in a 20-14 win over Columbia.

Clary, who went on to star for the South Carolina Gamecocks after high school, had a phenomenal season. During one stretch of the season, Clary rushed for 27 touchdowsn in seven games, twice scoring six touchdowns. He nicknamed "the Gaffney Ghost" and became not only a celebrety of his time at the high school level, but was also a legend in Gamecock lore as an All-Southern selection in 1933 and led the Gamecocks to three consecutive wins over their rivals to the North, Clemson. While stats were not kept well in that era, newspaper clippings indicate that he rushed for more than 2,000 yards JUST on his touchdown runs (Gaffney Ledger).

Whenever a debate is raised over the greatest high school players in the state of South Carolina, Earl "the Gafffney Ghost" Clary's name is always mentioned in the debate.
