With a field full of football players attending camp as a backdrop, two - now former Kingstree Senior High School players - are taking their athletic experience to a higher level. On Saturday, Garrett Hicks and Shyheam Frazier signed letters of intent to play with colleges.
Hicks signed with Orangeburg Calhoun Technical Prep Academy. Hicks played his junior and senior years at Kingstree.
During that time as a running back he had 1,500 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns and was named All-Region. Hicks said he was thankful for the opportunity.
“First I’d like to thanks God for giving me the opportunity,” said Hicks. “Second, I’d like to thank the coach.
He made me the player I am today and he made sure I was doing everything right and played hard every game.”
Frazier signed with The Apprentice School in Newport News Virginia.
“I’m feeling very confident with the Apprentice School football program and I hope to play for them this season,” said Frazier.
“It makes me feel good about myself and the people who helped me get to the next level.”
Frazier played offensive line and played a key role in opening up the holes for Hicks.
