As we all know, Clemson’s athletic department has become well-known throughout the country. Last month, the university’s football team made it to the NCAA Football championship team. As a result, they stand a good chance of ranking high at the beginning of next season.
As the Independent Mail reported, two former Clemson players are also being honored. The 2016 South Carolina Football Hall of Fame class was announced. Former defensive linebacker Jeff Davis and former defensive tackle Michael Dean Perry will be inducted into the hall.
But the city of Clemson isn’t the only area to create a prestigious player. Former wide receiver for Tennessee grew up in Easley. Former college coach Dal Shealy was a native of Batesburg and now also lives in Clemson.
All of these men will be celebrated at the fourth annual induction, which will take place in Greenville on Apr. 21 at the Hyatt Regency. The ceremony will also feature former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson as collegiate player of the year.
The Powell Group is proud of all these fine men and athletes, and are grateful for helping to make the Upstate the well-known area it is today. We invite you to check it out, and see what makes it so exciting.
