Ezzell Family Wins ESPN Contest

A couple of months ago, ESPN and DODGE began a contest titled "The Ultimate Tailgate Challenge" with the winner getting 2 tickets to the National Championship Football game this year in Tempe, AZ. They were simply looking for photos from College Football Saturday's around the nation.

"My wife's family, Clemson season football ticket holders from Belton, tailgates for every Clemson home game," said Trey Ezzell. "We snapped this photo two years ago just to get her brother in a picture with the Clemson Cheerleaders."

Clemson fans will be happy to know that this Clemson photo was voted on by more than 65,000 people and beat out over 20,000 other "Tailgate" pictures to win the Grand Prize!
