Clowney 'scores' at South Carolina's spring game

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - The most watched player at South Carolina got just one play at Saturday's spring game.

Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier had all-American defensive end Jadeveon Clowney run the coach's annual pass-to-someone-coming-off-the-sideline play.

Clowney, wearing sneakers, shorts and no pads, caught the pass from freshman Connor Mitch, but awkwardly slipped as he turned for the end zone. However, the referee "missed" him hitting the ground, and Clowney threw the ball in the stands after the 54-yard touchdown.

Spurrier has always taken a breezy attitude to his spring game. There are no real rosters and the defenses are limited to basic coverages.

Spurrier says if his team works hard, they can build on back-to-back 11-win seasons and again contend for a Southeastern Conference title.
