Son of Clemson staffer takes home major award


Big honor for the son of a Clemson Football staff member:

Daniel High School’s Trent Pearman, the son of the Tigers’ director of football scouting, Danny Pearman, has been named the 2020-21 Gatorade South Carolina Football Player of the Year.

A class of 2022 quarterback, Trent passed for 2,786 yards and 35 touchdowns with just two interceptions last season. In his first year as a varsity player, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound junior led the Lions to a 10-0 record and the Class AAA state championship.

Trent passed for multiple scores in nine of his team’s 10 games, including six touchdowns to go with his 472 passing yards in Daniel’s 52-31 win over Camden High in the state final.

Trent is the great nephew of legendary Clemson coach Danny Ford. Trent’s father, Danny, joined Clemson’s staff in 2008 and previously served as the Tigers’ tight ends coach/special teams coordinator before moving to the director of scouting role earlier this year.
