Clemson, S.C.—Clemson starting offensive guard Eric Mac Lain will receive a Jerry Richardson Community MVP Award Thursday night at the sixth annual South Carolina Coaches for Charity dinner in Columbia, S.C. The event will be held at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
Mac Lain is one of six people representing six different South Carolina schools who will be honored at the banquet with the Jerry Richardson Community MVP Award.
Mac Lain has been significantly involved in community service work since he came to Clemson in 2011. He recently won a Top Six Award from the Atlantic Coast Conference as one of the top Clemson student athletes from any sport involved in community service. He is also one of the nominees for the Allstate Good Hands Team, a national team of college football players honored for their community service.
On the field, Mac Lain has helped the Tigers to 32 wins and three top 15 finishes in the AP and USA Today polls over the last three years. He was named to the preseason All-ACC team selected by the media attending the ACC Football Kickoff at Pinehurst earlier this month.
