GREENVILLE, S.C. — The South Carolina Football Hall of Fame announced its finalists for the Blanchard-Rogers Trophy presented by Hale's Jewelers, an award which is presented to the most outstanding college player with South Carolina ties.
The Blanchard-Rogers Trophy is named after Felix “Doc” Blanchard and George Rogers, Heisman Trophy winners in the South Carolina Football Hall of Fame.
The list of finalists are:
Andrew Booth, Clemson, Defensive Back
Decobie Durant, South Carolina State, Defensive Back
Mataeo Durant, Duke, Running Back
Jaylan Foster, South Carolina, Safety
D'Marco Jackson, Appalachian State, Linebacker
Grayson McCall, Coastal Carolina, Quarterback
Channing Tindall, Georgia, Linebacker
Last year, University of South Carolina running back Kevin Harris, who was the 2020 SEC leader in rushing, received the Blanchard-Rogers Trophy from Gamecock great, George Rogers. Two years ago, the Trophy was given to 2020 #1 overall NFL Draft pick and former Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence, who just completed his first season with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The winner is derived from a vote of its members (fan members, sports media, and its Boards and Executive Team).
