Tiger Pregame Show To Honor Clemson Military Vets With Their Stories On Air And We Need Your Help!

The Tiger Pregame Show, a game day tradition for Clemson football fans on Saturdays since 2003, will broadcast from the Shadows of the Chapman Grandstands this Saturday for our 179th consecutive show!

This Saturday is Military Appreciation Day and we need your help!  During the show, we typically use transitions from the Clemson Game Notes to move between one segment to another while on air.

To honor Clemson's Military Heritage and to support Military Appreciation Day, the Tiger Pregame Show wants to use mini-stories of Clemson fan's Military service as transitions this week  instead of the traditional game notes.

How can you help?  Very simple.

Email us your military story in less than 100 words. This can by your military experience, a family member, or a friend.  If you know of a Clemson fan that has served, or is currently serving, we want their story to use as a transition on the air throughout the show this Saturday.

Email the 100 word or less bio to and we will use it on the air Saturday.

The Simpson's would like to recognize Albert Simpson, who served in the United States Navy during World War II.  Mr. Simpson received several commodations during his service.  

Albert returned from the war, started a family, and lived in Lancaster, South Carolina until his death in 1994.  Albert was a lifelong Clemson fan and IPTAY Member, passing on his love to Clemson to his 4 children and 13 grandchildren.

Use the example above as a guide, but feel free to modify as needed.  

Broadcast time this Saturday is from 9:30-12:30 and these recognitions will be used throughout the show live on the air.  
Fans can listen at WCCP 105.5 FM in the Upstate of South Carolina, anywhere in the world, and via the Tune In App (it is free).

Scott Rhymer, in his 14th year as Host, will once again anchor the show to bring Clemson fans all of the information, interviews, and insight to prepare for the game.  Rhymer has anchored the show on WCCP from its birth, giving Clemson fans a familiar voice and perspective on what has happened, what will happen, and the implications of all things Clemson when it comes to the upcoming games.  

"Not only is it an honor to host The Tiger Pregame Show, but the opportunity I have been blessed with over these 14 years to meet so many great Clemson fans has given me a lifetime of memories", Rhymer said recently.

Kelly Gramlich will join Scott Rhymer as our new full time Co-Host.  Kelly got her start at WCCP 105.5 The Roar in February 2015, appearing on Out of Bounds twice a week. She became the full-time producer and co-host of the show in May 2016. Gramlich also serves as the color commentator for Clemson women’s basketball broadcasts on the station.
