A Frying Pan

In South Carolina’s season-opening football game against North Carolina on Aug. 29, 2013, Elliott Fry, a freshman kicker, made a pair of field goals and converted all three extra points in the Gamecocks’ 27-10 victory.

The sweet Carolina walk-on was perfect in his collegiate debut, but here’s the kicker: His attire didn’t match his performance. It failed to get the job done, which is why I must pan Fry’s jersey.

Fry connected on a 39-yard field goal in the first quarter and added a 26-yarder just before halftime, in addition to those three extra points. Give the kid an A for making all his kicks. He’s earned it.
