He caught the national-championship winning pass with one second left on the clock, got a new golden retriever puppy to celebrate, and this week, officially had a day named in his honor. It’s been a hectic two weeks for Clemson wide receiver Hunter Renfrow.

On Tuesday, the mayor of Surfside Beach officially declared Jan. 24, 2017 “Hunter Renfrow Day,” in the town to honor Renfrow for his on-the-field and off-the-field achievements.

Renfrow, a native of Myrtle Beach, attended Socastee High School along with many students from Surfside Beach about eight miles away.

Surfside Beach mayor Robert F. Childs III lauded Renfrow for his athletic ability, as well as his academic achievements. At Socastee, Renfrow both lettered in football and was a member of the National Honor Society.

“Now, therefore, I, Robert F. Childs, III, Mayor of the Town of Surfside Beach, hereby proclaim that Hunter Renfrow shall be forever remembered and honored as a scholastic leader and extraordinary athlete in the town of Surfside Beach, South Carolina,” Childs wrote in Proclamation No. 17-112.

“Be it further proclaimed that Jan. 24, 2017 shall be proclaimed as Hunter Renfrow Day in the town of Surfside Beach.”
