One of the top 2020 high school football showdowns between North Carolina and South Carolina teams will take place in Bank of America Stadium, home of the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte, North Carolina. The two will meet September 5 at 7 P.M. in the first game in the NFL stadium.
Last year, Myers Park advanced to the North Carolina Class 4AA state quarterfinals, finishing No. 102 in the High School Football America national rankings. South Pointe, which has won four South Carolina state titles in the last six years, finished 10-1 in 2019.
The South Pointe game will be the second of two out-of-state games for Myers Park in 2020. The week before the game with the game with the Stallions, MP will host Trinity Christian from Cedar Hill, Texas.
Trinity Christian is led by 4-star college football prospect Shedeur Sanders, son of Pro Football Hall of Fame cornerback Deion Sanders, who has served as the school’s offensive coordinator for the last three seasons. The younger Sanders threw for 3,477 yards and 47 touchdowns with four interceptions last season in leading the Tigers to a 13-1 record and the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools (TAPPS) Division II state title. However, after the championship, Trinity Christian was officially removed from TAPPS.
