Dadria Harris admitted that she never saw herself in the running for the News19 Player of the Year award.
The Calhoun County senior played volleyball and was a cheerleader for the Saints, serving as a captain for both squads. But her outstanding grade point average and her role as senior class president provided a resume worthy of being a News19 Player of the Year.
Dadria will attend Francis Marion University and major in nursing.
Like Dadria, Spring Valley senior Jordan Stiffler has a high grade point average. With his mother working as a teacher at the school, doing well in the classroom was expected.
Jordan was an offensive lineman for the Spring Valley football team and as a wrestler, he finished third in the state in the 195-pound weight class.
He will attend Clemson and major in bio-medical engineering.
The two senior were honored at Wednesday night's banquet where they received a trophy and a $1,000 college scholarship from the title sponsor - Bojangles.
The banquet also featured remarks from two former USC athletes - Lugoff-Elgin graduate Megan Kirkland who played volleyball and Irmo's Justin McKie who just wrapped up his career with the Gamecock basketball team.
