Goose Creek High School football coach Jason Winstead released the Gators’ 2020 slate on Feb. 7.

The defending Region 7-AAAAA champion is coming off an appearance in the third round of the playoffs. The Gators host Oceanside Collegiate on Aug. 21 in an intriguing matchup of local squads. Oceanside advanced to the state semifinals in Class 2A last season.

Goose Creek is off on Aug. 28 and travels to West Ashley on Sept. 4. Stall visits Goose Creek on Sept. 11 as non-region play continues.

After loading the buses for Ashley Ridge on Sept. 18, the Gators host Summerville on Sept. 25 in a rematch of last season’s second-round playoff encounter at John Fulmer Field.

Goose Creek opens defense of its region crown in Moncks Corner against the Berkeley Stags on Oct. 2.

The Gators test themselves outside the region again on Oct. 9, rolling over to North Charleston to tangle with Fort Dorchester, the premier Lowcountry program the last several years.

Goose Creek is at home the next two weeks against Cane Bay and Wando on Oct. 16 and 23 before ending the regular season at crosstown rival Stratford on Oct. 30.
