Conway High gets second life in playoffs

Posted: Updated:

CONWAY - Anything can happen to any team in the football postseason, and the Conway Tigers were proof of that on Tuesday. Chuck Jordan's team has been given a second chance in the playoffs. The Tigers fell to Goose Creek  47-7 on Friday, and were eliminated then.

However, as of Tuesday the 13th, Goose Creek - the defending 4A Division Two state champion - was disqualified for using an ineligible player. The school has not gone into further details about the incident. The Gators are awaiting an appeal to be held on Wednesday at 5:30. Yet for now, the Conway Tigers are back in, and are scheduled to play at ninth-seeded Bluffton Friday night at 7:30.

After he took his team back out for an unexpected practice, coach Jordan didn't know how to exactly adjust to the situation at first.

"It was really kind of hard to take in right at first, and then I realized they were serious," said Jordan. "Then at that point you just try to move forward, and that's all we've done from then on, so I had to get in touch with some key people, and we had to get everything back out and we did it in a rush. So you just kind of do what you got to do."

The extra week of the season may also allow for Primetime Performer of the Year candidate Mykal Moody to return to his position at quarterback. Moody missed the last three games of the year due to injury, but took most of the snaps in Tuesday's practice. Coach Jordan says it will still be a gametime decision as to whether or not Moody will play on Friday, should the appeal be denied and Conway keep the current playoff spot.
