Hard to believe the guy the Burlsworth trophy is named after

is only honorable mention on a list of the best ever walk-ons. Saw the movie made about him a few years ago, "Greater", last year on Netflix. The acting wasn't great but the story was good.

What about David Treadwell!
What a walk on, like Hunter, but even lower expectations. A real student walk-on!

Walk on kicker who came to Clemson as an Electrical Engineering student who played soccer in high school.
Tried out for football because we needed a kicker. He was Mr. Clutch for Danny Ford, a real weapon! Killed Georgia twice and many other games.
Not a long leg like Potter, but Mr, Clutch and accurate. The ice man, almost automatic.
Played in the Pros for Denver and New York Giants. Denver even carried a ‘long kicker’ so Treadwell focused on kicks less than 50 yards. He was money on clutch kicks!
He even got an engineering job in Denver in case he didn’t make it as a kicker, then he made the team! Like being a walk on twice!

Go Tigers, Beat Wake!!

Hunter Renfrow should be number 1 because his measurements still are way off the NFL standard & he is still Mr. Clutch!

As far as I'm concerned, Hunter's story at Clemson

should be a mandatory "must see, must read" for every team member from now on...over and over and over.

Maybe, a few, who don't give 110%, will learn something about selflessness, commitment and determination.

He was and is one of the best "gold" standards to ever set foot in Death Valley.

Need to add Dabo to the list. I know he didn't have great statistics as a player but if he hadn't made it as a walk-on he probably wouldn't have become one of the best Head Coaches in College Football.

Jon Gruden put up a pic of Hunter without a shirt on as a joke telling the team about working out and getting their bodies ready. The whole team laughed including Hunter. What a great story he is.
