Ken Floyd, A.C. Flora

Let’s see. Capping off an undefeated regular season, winning the region championship and securing home field advantage throughout the Lower State playoffs isn't too bad for a coach in his first year at a school.

Greg Hill, North Myrtle Beach

The Chiefs have taken their lumps this year with a very young team. But Hill, in his first year as head coach at North Myrtle Beach, has remained optimistic. And that paid off in a big way Friday night. The Chiefs upset rival Myrtle Beach 20-14 and secured a state playoff berth.

Mark Hodge, Spartanburg

It seems like the Vikings are always right there in late October. They won a 42-41 thriller over rival Dorman to finish the regular season 6-4 and second place in their region. That was after a 1-3 start.

Tom Knotts, Dutch Fork

The legendary coach picked up yet another region title at Dutch Fork and it was culminated by a 63-7 wipeout of a very good Lexington team. Dutch Fork has won or shared the region championship 14 consecutive seasons under Knotts. During that time the Silver Foxes have won six state championships.

Jamar McKoy, James Island

James Island whipped Lucy Beckham 33-7 to claim the program’s first region championship in nearly three decades. The Trojans sport a 9-1 record after going 5-5 last season.

Mark Clifford, Beaufort Academy

The Eagles beat Bethesda Academy 35-30 to secure the SCISA 1-2A region championship. It's the first region title in school history.

Brian Hennecy, Marion

Marion blanked rival Mullins 48-0 to finish the regular season 8-2. The Swamp Foxes won the Region 8-AA championship.
