He was at Clemson, but I didn't think he was doing all that great (OK I mean). I only found out about a month ago he was actually signed (free agency I believe which my mom called "drafted" but I didn't see his name on the list).

The big story is he was the guy who pulled the family out of the burning car! I jumped out of my seat when I saw the story. Hadn't heard a peep from anyone! My dad had coincidentally taken him bowling the day before when he was back home (Loris, SC). I'm in KC so family gossip travels slow out to me.

I was on the Titans board gotitans.com asking around, but his odds don't sound all that great for making the team. I'll keep popping in there for news. We're of course all proud of him, but it's so strange seeing someone you know on TV!

Good luck to him. (I wouldn't have said that while he was at Clemson.)

Best of luck to him! That's hard work and takes a lot of heart.

Hey, isn't he the guy that pulled people from a burning car?

(And isn't that happening a lot - Dick Van Dyke was just pulled from his burning car. Zimmerman did it. Who's making these cars?)

:( he didn't make the cut. He was the 4th from the last cut down to 53. Maybe practice squad material, we'll see.

Sorry to hear that. It must be tough for these guys to give it so much work and then this. I wish him the best of luck!

Neither did James Harrison . It can work out

Yep, tell him to keep his chin up. My cousin went through a similar thing a few years ago. Although he didn't wind up in the NFL, he went back to Clemson as an assistant coach and is still there.

Pretty amazing GFOS.

Only a small percentage of players even get to sniff the NFL.

Hopefully he gets more opportunities to chase his dream... :drink:

Looks like he's still in the mix. They signed him to the practice squad!
