Clinton running back Bryson James has been named to the North All-Star team roster for the upcoming Touchstone Energy Cooperatives Bowl.
James, who leads the unbeaten Red Devils in rushing and scoring with over 1,300 yards on the ground and 29 total touchdowns, was initially snubbed for the game despite being named one of seven finalists for the South Carolina Mr. Football Award given to the top player in the state.
He was added to the roster to replace injured Greenwood running back Ve Morton. James also joins Clinton teammate Hezekiah Kinard, a defensive lineman, and Laurens receiver Cayson Elledge on the North All-Star squad.
The annual all-star game, which debuted in 1948, is set to be played Dec. 10 at Doug Shaw Stadium in Myrtle Beach.
James has received offers from North Greenville, Newberry and Presbyterian College.
