Dunlap claims MVP honors at North-South

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.- Five-star defensive end Carlos Dunlap of North Charleston (S.C.) Fort Dorchester took home the defensive Most Valuable Player award for the South team in the 59th annual South Carolina Automobile Dealers Association North-South Game on Saturday at Coastal Carolina University's Brooks Stadium.

The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder, who is rated as the nation's No. 7 overall prospect, had four tackles (two for loss) and was able to collapse the pocket and apply pressure on the quarterback often during the South's 24-0 loss to the North.

"It's really just how I was playing," Dunlap said. "I was playing hard during the game. I just wanted to come out here and live up to the hype."
