Recently I was lucky enough to catch up with former Gamecock wide receiver, Jermale Kelly. South Carolina native and 1995 Mr. Football, Kelly was a star on the field for the Gamecocks under Coach Brad Scott and Lou Holtz.

Some of his best games were played against USC rival, Clemson Tigers, totaling 13 catches for 223 yards in three games. After his career at South Carolina, he went on to play in the NFL Europe, where he was on a winning World Bowl Team.

Jermale Kelly is best remembered in Carolina history, along with a little known walk-on QB, Erik Kimrey, with a well-known and astonishing play, known as “The Fade”, against the Mississippi State Bulldogs...
