Two starts into his college football career, Clemson quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei is among the favorites for the 2021 Heisman Trophy, an award that has never been given to anyone in a Tigers uniform. That’s quite the high bar for a program that has produced the likes of quarterbacks Deshaun Watson of the Houston Texans; Trevor Lawrence, presumed No. overall pick by the Jacksonville Jaguars later this month; and ACC all-time leading rusher Travis Etienne.
One of the guests scheduled to attend this inspirational event is Dave Stevens. A legless athlete and motivational speaker, Stevens has crossed the country spreading his message of hope and courage. Stevens, born without legs in 1966, overcame his physical disabilities in amazing and incredible ways during an era when there were very few accommodations or programs for disabled students.
Five defensive backs were added by new GM Nick Caserio this offseason. Desmond King should be the lone starter of those added. Instead, Houston must target a cornerback early in the 2021 NFL Draft.
