Without hesitation, Scott Jones decided to go for the two-point conversion and the possible win after Lugoff-Elgin closed to within 20-19 with 66 seconds left to play in Friday's season finale against Sumter.
This, to put it mildly, has not been one of the most fun seasons to be a Lugoff-Elgin football player, coach or fan.
Like the crew of a moving company, the Lugoff-Elgin football coaches have been kept busy by shifting players from one position into another not just in practice, but on Friday nights, as well.
Halftime turned into work time for Lugoff-Elgin.
