There has really never been anybody like Jack Tatum….When he played for Ohio State it was unreal…When he went on to play for the Oakland Raiders it was even crazier…Now David Amerson has entered the Jack Tatum neighborhood…..

  1. A great choice. Good example of the role that grounded parents can play in a young man’s success also. Clemson might even be 12-0 if he had gone there instead of NCSU.

  2. This is why I love this website. You research and get your facts correct for the most part. The News & Record had him winning the Jim Tatum award. That is for the top scholar atlete in the ACC and it went to Danny Coale, Wide Receiver from Virginia Tech.
    Good job D.A.#1, Panther pride nation wide!!!
