WHITMIRE — The Newberry County Touchdown Club met Monday evening, and Newberry’s All-County Team was announced.

The guest speaker for the event was Woodrow “Woody” Dantzler, III. Dantzler is a former quarterback, running back, safety and return specialist. While playing for Clemson, Dantzler became the first player in NCAA football history to pass for more than 2,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000 yards in a single season. In 2001, he recorded 2,360 yards and 17 touchdowns (passing) and 1,004 yards and 10 touchdowns (rushing). Dantzler was also a Heisman trophy candidate in 2001, and he was inducted into the Clemson Football Hall of Fame in 2007. He holds 53 school records at Clemson. Dantzler was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys in 2002, and by the Atlanta Falcons in 2003. He was released after an injury in 2004 and went on to sign with the Cowboys again in 2005.
