Darius Rush

C.E. Murray War Eagles football player Darius Rush is going places. He was the first to commit for the University of South Carolina in the Class of 2018. Rush plans to enroll at USC in January of next year. Rush, who has a 3.9 GPA, plans to study sports management.

Under the leadership of first-year Head Coach Chad Wilkes, the War Eagles are having a great season with a record 5-2. The losses were by powerhouses and were non-conference games. Through seven games this season, Rush has contributed 32 receptions for 478 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Good news keeps coming, early Sunday morning Rush received word that he was selected to play in the 81st Shrine Bowl. “I am honored and thankful to be chosen to represent South Carolina, Williamsburg County and C.E. Murray High School in the Shrine Bowl,” said Rush. The last Williamsburg County appearance at the Shrine Bowl was C.E. Murray’s Adrian Burgess in 1998 and Hemingway’s Jabril Solomon in 2011. The Shrine Bowl will be played December 16, at Wofford College.

The Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas is the oldest high school football all-star game in the nation, and the five Shrine Centers in the Carolinas are extremely proud to be the hosts. These Shrine Centers, along with the Shrine Bowl, have raised over $83.5 million for Shriners Hospitals for Children since 1937.
