The countdown continues as the Gamecocks gear up for the 2014 football season ahead. South Carolina has received quite a bit of attention early into the game and are expected to be front-runners in the show.No. 40 Jacob August
The 40-yard dash, a 40-man roster,a 40-40 score in tennis; what ever the case may be, the number 40 is all that stands in the way of the garnet and black returning on the field. In spirit of 40-days left until kick-off, freshman Jacob August represents our No. 40 on the Gamecocks roster.
The Columbia, S.C.-native stands at 6-foot-6, 247 pounds at tight end. Previously, August attended Fork Union Military Academy and was listed as a tight end, wide receiver, punter, and placekicker. The walk-on enrolled and joined South Carolina this past January and adds depth to the roster.
Also, the Gamecocks have another addition to the number 40.
2013 for 40-plus
The South Carolina 2013 senior class was the winningest in school history with 42 victories. Only 12 Division I-A schools have established 40-plus wins over the past four years.
