in 2018 Shrine Bowl game
Bethune-Bowman's head football coach Ken Tucker will be among the assistant coaches for the South Carolina Sandlappers team in the 2018 Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas, it was announced this week.
Tucker, the 2016 T&D Region Coach of the Year, has led Bethune-Bowman to back-to-back 6-5 seasons. The program had just one win in 2014, before Tucker arrived for the 2015 season.
Dillon’s Jackie Hayes was named the head coach for 2018 South Carolina Shrine Bowl squad. This will be Hayes’ fourth appearance in the annual all-star game. He was a manager for the game in the early 1970s, played in the 1979 game and was an assistant in the 2003 game.
Hayes, who also is South Carolina state representative, has won more than 300 games and won his seventh state title earlier this month against Chapman. All of the titles have come since 2008.
Other assistant coaches for Hayes on the S.C. squad will be Fort Dorchester’s Steve LaPrad, Baptist Hill’s Marion Brown, Spartanburg’s Chris Miller and Hanahan’s Steve Blanchard. Hayes also will get to pick an assistant from Dillon to fill out the staff.
Dudley High School's Steve Davis has been named the head coach for the North Carolina Tar Heels team.
