Tajh Boyd donates 500 backpacks to local students

Former Clemson standout Tajh Boyd gave out an estimated 500 school backpacks to at-risk children with his foundation at Woodland Elementary School in Greer on Monday and Blue Ridge Elementary in Seneca last Friday.

"Great feeling to give away over 500 backpacks filled with school supplies to at-risk youth in Greenville and Oconee County schools through the Tajh Boyd Foundation," Boyd posted on his foundation facebook account. "Thanks to all who made this possible." #givingback #backtoschool #teamtajh

The Tajh Boyd Foundation's mission statement is "Empowering and enabling youth in SC to overcome adversity through education, mentoring and character development for the long term betterment of their lives and our communities."


Boyd passed for 11,904 yards with a 64.3% completion rate, 107 touchdowns, and 39 interceptions during his outstanding career at Clemson. He also rushed for 1,100 yards and another 26 scores on the ground. The former fan-favorite was also the ACC Player of the year in 2012.
