Three Tigers named finalists for 2018 Blanchard-Rogers trophy

Greenville, SC: Each fall the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame (SCFHOF) announces its top finalists for the Blanchard-Rogers Award (South Carolina’s Heisman) presented by Hale’s Jewelers, which goes out to the most outstanding collegiate player of the year that has South Carolina ties. This year our scouts evaluated over 200 players throughout the nation to name a top 20. The winner is derived from a vote of its members (fan members, sports media, and its Boards and Executive Team). Online voting at https://scfootballhof.org/membership/vote/ will close on December 10, 2018.

The Blanchard-Rogers Trophy is awarded at the organization’s annual Enshrinement Banquet on April 23, 2019 at the Hilton Greenville. Rock Hill native and Oklahoma State standout quarterback Mason Rudolph, and former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson are past recipients of the trophy. The Blanchard-Rogers Trophy is hand crafted by local artist Ryan Calloway of Creative Iron Works. This will be the sixth straight year the organization has honored the collegiate player of the year from South Carolina.

The SCFHOF encourages the football fans of South Carolina to engage with the vote of this year’s recipient and Class of 2019 by becoming a member at https://scfootballhof.org/membership/join/ (free option available)..
