Byrnes High School | SC
- Lattimore had one of the most productive careers in high school football history, reaching the highest levels in team and individual success. He led Byrnes to state titles his sophomore and junior seasons and to a runner-up finish his senior year. On the ground, Lattimore’s career marks stand at 6,375 yards and 104 touchdowns. He was named All-State and elected Junior National Football Player of the Year in 2008. The next season, Lattimore earned the title of Mr. Football in South Carolina and was a repeat All-State selection.
College: University of South Carolina
- Lattimore continued to put up big numbers at the college level, culminating in him being named consensus SEC Freshman of the Year and National Freshman of the Year. He also earned All-SEC status after his 1,609 yards-from-scrimmage, 19-touchdown freshman season. Lattimore set the South Carolina single-season scoring record and his 1,197 rushing yards trail only Heisman winner George Rogers for the most in a single season in Gamecock history. He was an easy choice for the 2011 Preseason All-SEC team, and is on every watch list possible. Lattimore could even be considered a favorite for the Heisman Trophy as a sophomore.
