How they stack up
Two-way players are a semi-new thing at Rock Hill, but the Bearcats have an excellent pair in seniors Brandon Croutch and Deshaun McFadden. Croutch will probably get the bulk of the carries out of the backfield, along with junior Tim Sherer. McFadden will join a receiving corps with more talented juniors Thailand Adams, John McCullough, Antonio Hardy and Dachon Witherspoon. Senior Tanner Stafford will martial the offensive line.
Defensively, Croutch and McFadden will be helped in the secondary by fellow senior Donnell Williams, while the linebacking group, led by junior Donavon Perryman and senior Emanuel Jones, should be pretty good.
“Offensively, we adjusted to the pace of practice last year. Coach Montgomery, he allowed me to come in and kind of change the practice and do it like I needed to do it. It wasn’t that big of an adjustment. We’ve changed how we practice, but that was done in the spring, so it’s just picking and up and going forward from here.”
