S. Florence High student excels on and off the field

Posted: Updated:

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - With the high school football season over for the South Florence Bruins, the captain of the varsity team says he's tackling another challenge.

"Calculus," says 16-year-old Tabari Hines. "I mean, I like math, but some stuff just doesn't come too easy."

Math may not be his strong suit, but Hines' effort off the field is paying off. He has a 4.2 GPA, is a member of the National Honor Society and someday hopes to become an architect.

"My dad wanted to be an architect and for some odd reason I started to want to be one myself," he says.

Hines is an ambitious young man with future goals but at school he's primarily known for his talent on the field as wide receiver. His coach says he got nearly 1,000 receiving yards this year, helping the Bruins rank 8th in the state. His coach adds Hines is the type of player colleges look for.

"He's already talented enough and having the grades to go with it is even better," says David Prince.

Hines is already starting to receive letters of interest from regional universities and says he owes his success to those who have supported him along the way.

"My coaches and my mother they see bright things out of me and they push me hard, trying to make sure that I am the best that I can be."
