Hunter Renfrow (born December 21, 1995) is an American football wide receiver and return specialist for the Clemson Tigers.

High school career[edit]

Renfrow attended Socastee High School in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where his father, Tim, was the football coach.[1] He played quarterback for Socastee's American football team and was rated by Rivals.com as a two-star recruit.[2] He received offers from Appalachian State, Gardner-Webb, Presbyterian, and Wofford, where his father played.

College career[edit]

Despite receiving scholarship offers to play football and baseball at schools in the Football Championship Subdivision, Renfrow enrolled at Clemson University, and walked on to the Clemson Tigers football team. He was 5 feet 10 inches (1.78 m) and weighed only 155 pounds (70 kg). He took a redshirt in 2014. By 2015, when he had increased to 176 pounds (80 kg), he received a scholarship.[1] Renfrow played in all 13 games as a redshirt freshman in 2015, making ten starts, and recording 492 yards and five touchdowns. He caught two touchdown passes in the 2016 College Football Playoff National Championship.[3] In 2016, Renfrow played in just nine games as a sophomore due to injury. He recorded 353 yards and caught four touchdown passes.[4] In the 2017 College Football Playoff National Championship against the Alabama Crimson Tide, he caught the game-winning touchdown from quarterback Deshaun Watson with one second remaining in the game.[5]

In 2018, Renfrow won the Burlsworth Trophy, given to the best college player who began his career as a walk on.[6]

Personal life[edit]

Renfrow is one of six children. His mother, Suzanne, and brother, Jordan, both graduated from Clemson.[1] Renfrow's father, Tim, is one of eleven children.
