Cross High School’s football team is set to encounter three new opponents in the fall.

Trojans coach Shaun Wright recently released his squad’s next slate, which shows four non-region and six Region 5-A clashes. Also of note, Cross has just four home games and six road contests in the regular season.

North Charleston, Branchville and Bethune-Bowman are new to the 2024 schedule. The Trojans were 7-1 in 2023 against the other seven teams: Calhoun County, Timberland, Lake Marion, Military Magnet, St. John’s, Scott’s Branch and Baptist Hill.

In 2023, the Trojans posted an 11-2 record, captured a region crown and advanced to the third round of the Class A playoffs.

Cross lost nine seniors off that squad, including quarterback Tyler Mungin (1,878 total yards, 26 TDs), defensive back Cobey Coleman (5 INTs, 3 FRs) and defensive lineman Jayden Middleton (North-South all-star).

Key returners for next season include running backs Karmello Jones and May’Ky Green, a rising senior and rising sophomore who combined for more than 1,500 yards and 26 touchdowns. Rising junior receiver Caden Ramsey made six touchdown catches and four interceptions as a sophomore and rising senior linebacker David Wigfall led the team in tackles.
