Jacob Crotts didn’t follow the typical path to Clemson. He grew up a huge fan of the University of South Carolina as a resident of Sumter, located just an hour east of the Gamecocks’ home in Columbia. But once he arrived on campus in the fall of 2015, it didn’t take long for him to call Clemson home.

Crotts serves as clerk for the Undergraduate Student Senate and also works as an assistant for the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs. He calls both “defining moments” in his Clemson Experience and says he’s been spoiled thoroughly by Tiger football, which has advanced to the College Football Playoff each of his three years on campus. He discusses all of that and much more in this week’s podcast.
