Tiger fans have had a love for the Scott family ever since they left UofSC and came to Clemson. Jeff Scott has now given the Clemson family another reason to continue that feeling even if he is no longer a coach in Tigertown.
For those that have not heard, former Clemson offensive lineman, Kalon Davis, and his family are going through a tough time. Davis’ family home in Chester, SC burned Thursday night. Making a horrible tragedy even worse is the fact that he lost his dad in the fire. Davis’ mom also had severe injuries. She is currently at the burn center in Augusta, Ga.
This is where Coach Scott’s actions come in. The former Clemson cooffensive coordinator and current University of South Florida Head coach has set up a GoFundMe page so the Clemson Family and the South Florida Family can help Davis and his family in their time of need. Davis is currently on Coach Scott’s staff as a graduate assistant at South Florida.
Davis was recruited and played on the OL for Scott’s dad at Clemson in 2010. Coach Brad Scott is now working as his son’s Football Administrator at South Florida. Davis played in 49 games during his Clemson career. This included 21 starts. He earned honorable All ACC honors after his senior season in 2014. He also played on Clemson’s first ACC Championship team in 20 years back in 2011. Davis was also on the Tiger bowl teams that beat LSU, Ohio State, and Oklahoma in consecutive years.
