The Ashley Ridge Football team is able to add another record to the books. Senior, Brandon Payne, is the starting kicker for the Varsity Swamp Fox team, and has made multiple accomplishments on the field this year.

During the Ashley Ridge homecoming game, Payne set a new kicker school record that far surpasses a great accomplishment. He scored himself a school record by earning a 5 out of 5 field goal attempt. He also earned another record of kicking the farthest field goal in school history, which was 48-yards.

Due to Payne’s tremendous success on the field, he is up for being the Nexton Player of the week. Out of the 43 points Ashley Ridge scored against James Island Charter, Payne scored 19 of them alone.

“I’m really thankful for a supportive team, and because of them is why I was able to accomplish what I did,” said Payne.

Anyone can still vote for Payne on Nexton’s Player of the Week website. He is up against four other boys from around the low country and we would love to see him earn it.

The Swamp Foxes are very proud of our very own Brandon Payne. We wish him all the best for the rest of his senior season.
