Athlete of the Week: Hunter Renfrow, Socastee

SOCASTEE - For the second straight year, Socastee finds itself in the same spot. 12-0, in the lower state semifinals, and led by quarterback Hunter Renfrow. Yet for him, it's all a familiar feel.

"Honestly not much has changed," he said. "We have a great group of coaches and great group of players who play together as a team. I think that's the biggest thing we've done, is play together as a team and help each other out."

Renfrow and the Braves got the revenge they needed with a one point win over Hartsville last week, iced by an interception from him in the closing minute. Up next is a Marlboro County team that was also a one point winner a week ago.

"We're just trying to be 1-0 (each week), and just preparing to get that opportunity like we had against Hartsville," Renfrow said. "It's a lot like every other week. We're just trying to get better each practice, and get ready for Marlboro County."

Yet Renfrow always seems to come up big in close spots. Despite being hampered by an ankle injury recently, he hasn't even let that slow him down.

"He's still trying to improve himself," explained Braves head coac Doug Illing. "Trying to get better. Trying to find a way for teams to be successful in practice. He doesn't want to sit out of practice, he wants to get his reps, get more repetitions, and that shows more toughness to his teammates."

When he takes the field again this Friday, he will be looking to earn one more home game of his career. Thanks to a region championship, homefield advantage throughout the lower state playoffs has helped along the way this month.

"That's huge," Renfrow said. "I remember freshman and sophomore year we would have those long bus drives to AC Flora and Airport and places like that. It was long, it took a while, and took a lot out of us, and it's just nice to have homefield advantage."
