GREENVILLE – South Carolina State Head Football Coach Buddy Pough will once again join fellow coaches from around the state in the name of charity.
The 10th Annual South Carolina Coaches for Charity will be held on Tuesday, July 23rd at the Marriott in Greenville, with more than 250 guests in attendance.
Other NCAA Division I coaches from in-state universities will share the stage with Coach Pough: Josh Conklin (Wofford), Clay Hendrix (Furman), Will Muschamp (South Carolina), Dabo Swinney (Clemson) and Brent Thompson (The Citadel).
Each will bring their supporters to Greenville to help raise money for their respective charities. Money is also raised during the evening to help sponsor single-parent children who attend Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) summer camps. Coach Pough has chosen the Midlands Area FCA as his charitable beneficiary for funds raised by attendance at the event.
Also, each coach honors his annual recipient of a Community MVP Award. Coach Pough’s 2019 Award honoree, Earl Humes, heads up the Midlands Area FCA.
The event is sponsored annually by the Fisher DeBerry Foundation, which is led by Hall of Fame and legendary former Air Force Falcons head football coach Fisher DeBerry.
“This is a fun and meaningful night for us every year,” said DeBerry, a Cheraw native. “The state of South Carolina, which is my home, is blessed with football coaches who give back."
Tables for the meal and individual tickets are still available, though the evening is nearly sold out. For information, visit www.SouthCarolinaCoaches.com.
