After a journeyman professional football career, former Clemson QB Woody Dantzler is back in his home state of South Carolina.
The 32-year-old Dantzler grew up in Orangeburg and now makes his home in Mauldin. In addition to working as a sales advisor at a Greenville-area DriveTime Used Car Sales dealership, Dantzler is a youth pastor at Redemption World Outreach Center, a motivational speaker and an athletic trainer.
Dantzler left Clemson in 2002 holding 53 school records. In 2001, he became the first player in NCAA football history to throw for 2,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in the same season. He played in five different leagues during a nine-season professional career (2002–2010), including NFL stints with the Cowboys and Falcons.
Dantzler’s Tigers, ranked No. 10 in the current AP Poll, travel to Tallahassee to battle fourth-ranked Florida State this Saturday. Woody Dantzler profile
