Byrnes High School football has sparked a legacy of champions since its inception in 1955. It was one of the first schools in South Carolina to desegregate, and it now boasts nine state championship wins. Team historian and former Rebel Zachary Johnson (class of '99) traces the evolution of the Rebels, from their first win over Blue Ridge High in 1955 to their now nationally televised games. Included are stories of the incredible coaches and players, such as Coach Bobby Bentley, who brought the team to the Class 4-AAAA playoffs ten times, and tailback Marcus Lattimore, who scored 104 touchdowns during his tenure at Byrnes. With a generous collection of statistics, all-time records and photographs of every team, this book is a must-have for every proud Rebel.
