WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Week number two of the high school football season will kick off on Friday. Click the play video icon to see our preview of Friday's action. This week it actually includes a look at Saturday's high school action as well.

----------------------

TABOR CITY, NC (WWAY) -- We understand former South Columbus quarterback Pharoah McKever will redshirt this season for the NC State football team. McKever has been playing wide receiver for the Wolfpack under new head coach Dave Doeren. McKever is a freshman at NC State. If McKever redshirts he'll still have four years of eligibility.

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Ted Ginn Jr. is showing he has something left to offer Carolina, catching five passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns to lift the Panthers to a 25-10 preseason win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night.

In a game devoid of star power, Derek Anderson completed 10 of 15 passes for 220 yards, including TD strikes of 87 and 35 yards to Ginn, who's looking to find a home after being run out of Miami and San Francisco.

Only a handful of starters played as both coaches took a long look at players further down the depth chart.

Rookie quarterback Landry Jones played the entire game for the Steelers, completing 16 of 35 passes for 189 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions.

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -- Mike Davis ran 75 yards for a touchdown, Connor Shaw and Dylan Thompson each threw long scoring passes and All-American Jadeveon Clowney helped No. 6 South Carolina's defense hold North Carolina to its lowest point total under coach Larry Fedora in a 27-10 victory Thursday night.

The game was delayed nearly two hours in the fourth quarter by rain. The Gamecocks were already in control by that then.

Clowney did not have a sack and finished with three first-half tackles. The Tar Heels' fast-paced offense wore him down and forced him to the sideline for several pit stops, yet he and defense mostly hemmed in the Tar Heels' fast-paced attack. Shaw and Thompson ended things early as South Carolina led 17-0 in the opening quarter.

Shaw found Shaq Roland for a 65-yard touchdown on the game's third play. Thompson threw a 29-yard TD to Kane Whitehurst later in the quarter.
