Dusty Rhodes and his team at Rhodes Companies will be sponsoring the award this year and will be providing a custome designed South Carolina Player of the Year award ring to the 2012 winner.

The Dusty Rhodes South Carolina Player of the Year by SCVarsity.com is open to all varsity level players - not just seniors. The list of candidates, as always, was impressive and very difficult for the voters to choose from. It is NOT an award that is based on the career of a player, but rather his performance in the current football season.

Below is a list of past winners of the award and where they went for their post-prep careers. Be watching Monday, August 6th, for the release of this year's preseason candidates.
