SportsTalk broadcast live from the Columbia Convention Center Thursday night. We were on hand for the Coaches for Charity event that former Air Force head football coach, and Cheraw native, Fisher DeBerry holds annually in the capital city.
We’ve been fortunate to be a part of the festivities for some time now, and have seen this burgeoning event outgrow venues over the years. The gala is a “who’s who” of college football coaches across the state, who are on hand to support and fundraise for their particular charities.
Also present for the Coaches for Charity event Thursday evening were two athletes heavily involved with athletics and community service for the USC and Clemson football programs. Former USC great Marcus Lattimore, and current Clemson offensive lineman Eric Mac Lain were recipients of the Jerry Richardson Award for their accomplishments in the community.
Lastly, the man himself, Coach DeBerry, stopped by for a minute to elaborate on his foundation’s vision, and overall purpose for putting this Charity dinner together year in and year out.
