Boys Varsity Football · Chisolm earns Shrine Bowl nod

Berkeley High School receiver D.J. Chisolm was one of two Berkeley County School District football players to land on the South Carolina Shrine Bowl team, announced on Sunday.

Hanahan High School defensive lineman Cooper Dawson, who hopes to return from a knee injury for the playoffs, is the other Shrine Bowl pick.

Chisolm, an East Carolina commit, has 27 catches for 454 yards and five touchdowns this season for a Berkeley offense that has plenty weapons to get involved. The Stags average 42 points per game.

Chisolm has been clocked at 4.35 in the 40-yard dash.

As a junior, he set school records for receptions with 69 and yards with 1,333. He found the end zone 13 times as the Stags won a region championship and made the Lower State championship game.

The 82nd annual Shrine Bowl, which pits some of South Carolina’s best senior players against North Carolina’s all-stars, is slated for 1 p.m. on Dec. 15 at Wofford’s Gibbs Stadium.

North Carolina has won three straight in the series but South Carolina leads overall 44-33-4.

More players from the school district are hoping to make the North-South All-Star rosters when they are announced this week. That all-star game matches up some of the top seniors from the Lower State against the Upper State.

The game is set for Noon on Dec. 15 at Coastal Carolina’s Brooks Stadium.
