UGASports TV: Father supports son's decision
Anthony King is a graduate of Clemson University, but his son decided not to follow in his footsteps. Tavarres King was down to Clemson and Georgia before choosing to attend UGA at the press conference on Friday. His father was there decked out in Clemson orange, but in full support of his son's decision to wear red and black.
You could not miss Mr. King in the Habersham Central cafeteria when you walked in because of the bright orange shirt he was wearing. You could tell Clemson is still where the heart is for him, but that is where he attended college and his son much more important.
Mr. King clapped as loud as anyone else did Friday afternoon when his son announced that he would be attending the University of Georgia over Clemson, Florida, Georgia Tech, LSU, Oklahoma, Auburn and other programs that came after him.
The Clemson Tigers will always be the school Mr. King cheers for on Saturdays in the fall, but he will still be the biggest cheerleader and supporter of his son when he goes off to Athens to be a Bulldog.
After many in attendance left on Friday afternoon, Mr. King sat down with us for an exclusive interview about his son's decision, how he helped him in the process and more on UGASports TV.
