Daniel Rodriguez is about to fulfill a dream, and more importantly to him, keep a promise to a brother-in-arms.
Rodriguez found out this week he had been cleared by the NCAA and the Atlantic Coast Conference to join Clemson’s football team as a walk-on receiver.
Once Rodriguez trots onto the practice field Friday in his orange No. 83 for Clemson’s first practice, he’ll complete a transformation from a struggling teenager to a young man who’s achieved his goal after witnessing some of the most horrific fighting in Afghanistan.

    Glad to see the NCAA get this one right! This just gives the Tigernation one more hero with a huge heart on the field come Saturday. Can’t wait to see those guys run down the hill and I’m looking forward to watching Daniel get into his first bit of action soon! Go Tigers!
