Tig Willard Saves Family From Burning Car

Jonathan “Tig” Willard fashioned a successful Clemson career by being in the right spot at the time. Tuesday afternoon the former Clemson linebacker was in the right spot at the right time again. Full Story »



Way to go, Tig! They would have been

Goners without him. Sounds like the Mom was on Xanax.

How about just tired. Why try and place a drug using mom with her children in the car to make it more of a drama affair, to a worthless mother/woman. Maybe you have been close to situations like that in your life and direct it to every one else's.

It seems that some want to jump to the worst possible conclusions anytime something happens. I imagine my wife would have been scared if a guy was trying to pull her and our kids over, and I would probably have been reluctant, myself. Hats off to Tig for his persistency.

that a man was trying to get her pulled over on an interstate. Or maybe by the time she pulled over she had realized that the car was on fire and she went into shock. Everyone does not go into hero mode when in a situation like that.


Bravo, Tig!

THAT is heroism! Should be the 1 story on here

Instead of the crud about a clown and his ringmaster.

So sick of hearing "sports hero". Tig is a real hero.

Sorry but the gamecocks take the headlines over anything else on this 'bored'. There was nothing in this story for the 'fans' to be jealous of therefore it is small potatoes to the real Clemson men. Sickening isn't it?


Way to go Tig!!!

So proud of him!


Great Heroics..Tig***

Gamecocks don't talk about heroes.


Thanks Tig!! Could have had a tragic ending

You'd be amazed at how people do not stop

I've witnessed two wrecks in the same spot on 85 in ATL, one involving a flipping SUV at high speeds, and both times I've been the only one to stop. People just sit and stare and get angry that traffic has slowed.

I'm right there with you.

I once drove by a house on fire, turned around and called 911 and knocked on the door to try to get the family out. As I was doing this, people were just driving by on their merry way just looking at me. Lots of faith in humanity lost that day. I'm so proud of Tig.

High Fives to him for his efforts and success. This family I believe will be forever grateful. I hope that this young mans concern and efforts will be rewarded at the Titans camp and he has a very successful career.

Kudos Mr. Willard for your quick thinking and your Big Heart!!!

Truly remarkable feat of courage. Outstanding show of
selflessness and heroics ! I have to believe God meant
for Tig to be there at that time to help someone in dire
need.


ESPN just mentioned this story on SportsCenter

Heroic move by Mr. Willard. Not everyone has the guts to step up and save lives in a life and death situation. Major props.


Tig is a hero--proud of him, happy that the family is safe**

This young family has Tiger training to thank for their lives. Tig could have cruised on by like so many others but he didn't - good job Tig & thank you for making Clemson proud!
