“I’m proud to be a Clemson fan and I like their player Christian Wilkins who’s from Massachusetts,” he explained.

Giles Parker, Jake’s dad, said he son has been a fan for about three or four years. “He watched Deshaun Watson, who’s become his favorite player in college or pro, and so we’ve been to a couple of games and just keep following and watching every game.”
