Will Sport
RS Senior
6'5'' / 304 lbs
Milton, FL

Recruitment:
3 stars, 110th overall offensive tackle in the 2011 class

- offers from UCF, South Florida, FAU, FIU, and others.

College Career:
A freshman redshirt, he played in 12 games in his first on-field season for the Gamecocks, primarily on special teams. He shared the Most Improved Offensive Lineman Award with Brandon Shell. Two seasons ago, he played in eight games, including his first career start against Tennessee. Last year, he was slated as a backup, but ended up starting 11 games, and saw playing time in every contest. He was a selection for the SEC Fall Academic Honor-Roll.

2015 Outlook:
Throughout his career at South Carolina, Will Sport has consistently been praised for his work-ethic and his dedication to improvement on and off the field. There's no reason to believe that this trend won't continue this season. If everyone stays healthy (Will Sport, alongside Malik Young, Brock Stadnik, Mike Matulis, and Cody Waldrop), we're looking for experience to contribute to an improved Gamecocks o-line across the board.

Trivia:

Will Sport hails from Milton, Florida. While Milton has produced a large number of football products, the small town in the 'handle has been more recently known as the hometown of some rather unique characters on the PGA Tour. Can you name them?
