Dutch Fork is the first team in South Carolina to ever win five straight high school football championships. The Silver Foxes, ranked No. 9 in the High School Football America 100, beat T.L. Hanna Friday 28-6 to capture another Class AAAAA state championship.
This game was never in doubt with Dutch Fork scoring on its first four possessions. Clemson commit Will Taylor threw for 147 yards and ran for 82 more in the victory. T.L. Hanna entered the game ranked No. 108 in our national high school football rankings that are powered by BlackMP Living Water.
Head coach Tom Knotts, who was the 2019 High School Football America/National High School Coaches Association Football Coach of the Year, has now led Dutch Fork to six overall state titles. When combined with his state championships at Independence High in North Carolina, Knotts has won 13 high school football championships.
