All Time Native South Carolinian Team


Posted: Jul 7, 2018 6:04 PM
 

Feel good about the Notre Dame guy from Woodruff that played for Holtz at QB. Clowney at DE. Bennie Cunningham at TE. Swearinton (sp?) at DB. George Webster LB at Michigan St. Banks McFadden., both Perry brothers at DL. Who else? The good ones that I recall are Steve Greer Guard at GA, Jerry Butler at Receiver, Steve Fuller, Freddie Solomon (think he played at Tampa?), Bennie Galloway, Wayne Mass, Connie Wade ( who didn’t pan out), Mike Fair, Kent Lawrence at GA, King Dixon. I know I have left a ton off. What is interesting is the lack of offensive linemen we have produced.

Your thoughts?

I would have to include Stanley Morgan (Easley,Tennessee, New England) on an all-time Native South Carolinian team.

Both Steeler greats and of course Kirkland one of the best ever at Clemson.

Tony Rice played on successful teams at ND, but Steve Fuller was at least as good, if not better.

AJ Green and Nuk are hands down the two best receivers to come out of SC.

AJ Green comes to mind, wasn’t he from Summerville!!!


Re: All Time Native South Carolinian Team

Yep, Summerville. Coach John McKissick.

Jeff Burris (DB) from Northwestern and Courtney


Posted: Jul 7, 2018 7:39 PM
 

Brown (DE) from Alvin were two of the best I saw and had long careers in NFL. Burris was a first rd pick and Brown was first overall pick in 2000.


Shaun Ellis, Daquan Bobers, and Gaines Adams are


Posted: Jul 7, 2018 7:42 PM
 

All mighty fine players from SC too.


I think these two go without saying:

Troy Brown Best Ever


Posted: Jul 7, 2018 8:44 PM
 

Best ever, possibly Troy Brown from Blackville, SC, Marshall U. and 15 years on NE Patriots. 5 Super Bowls, 3 victories. All time leading Pats receiver when he retired. Elected to the Pats hall of fame.


I like your spunk, but...


Posted: Jul 7, 2018 11:11 PM
 

You absolutely would NOT take Troy Brown over Nuk, AJ Green or Freddie Solomon... the Pats WR HOF members didn't even make a lot of pro bowls or all pro teams... the patriots have only been relevant for as long as bellicheck has been the coach, before then, they were no more significant than the buccaneers... c'mon man!! LOL

Re: I like your spunk, but...

All fine receivers, but I'll repeat Troy Brown played in 5 Super Bowls, 3 winners over 15 years. AJ Green may play longer and better, but he's not there yet. Brown besides being a great receiver also was one of the best punt returners, kick off returners in the league. Heck he even played defense when needed and was the emergency QB.


Re: I like your spunk, but...


Posted: Jul 8, 2018 4:26 PM
 

From Wiki: In addition to playing offense and defense with success, Brown is the Patriots' all-time leading punt returner with 252 returns for 2,625 yards and 3 touchdowns. He is second all-time in Patriots history in receptions (557) and third all-time in receiving yards (6,366). He still holds the Super Bowl record for most punt returns in a career with 8.
Brown is the only player in NFL history with at least 550 receptions, 250 punt returns, and an interception.


Those make a great case for an all purpose choice


Posted: Jul 8, 2018 7:08 PM
 

But as a receiver, AJ Green has already surpassed Brown's receiving totals... in SEVEN seasons: 8200 yds, and Nuk will surpass him NEXT SEASON in receiving yards, and Green and Nuk have already bested Brown's best single season in yards and both have already scored more touchdowns. Brown would make a great all purpose choice, but as a receiver, he's top 10 but not even top 5...

Going back a ways - Buddy Gore from Georgetown - first RB at Clemson to have a 1000 yard season I think - and Jimmy Orr - wide receiver and Pro Bowler from Seneca.

If people were as good as their obituary - and products were as good as advertised - this would truly be a wonderful world !!

Buddy Gore was a great college runner and ACC Player of the Year. He actually played at Conway HS.

How can we all forget our Ben Boulware from Anderson. And for Oline I think Dalton Freeman was a really good center from us from Pelion SC (right down the road from me).

Granted neither of these guys did much in the NFL, they were pretty darn good Clemson players.


Re: All Time Native South Carolinian Team


Posted: Jul 8, 2018 8:18 AM
 

Mike Williams is also from SC. But it'd be hard to take him over AJ Green and Nuk since he has yet to play and NFL yet.


Re: All Time Native South Carolinian Team


Posted: Jul 8, 2018 8:21 AM
 

The Perry brothers, and Ben Anderson (for his efforts in restoring the Hill entrance)

Re: All Time Native South Carolinian Team

Kevin Long the center from Summerville that went to FSU...Think he played a few years in the NFL with the Oilers/Titans.


Re: All Time Native South Carolinian Team

What about Jerry Butler from Ware Shoals? And don't forget about the late great ( the catch)
Dwight!!!
