Blackmon Huckabee volunteered to step into a leadership role and serve as a chapter leader after the 2021 season. He attended the Leadership Development Conference and Young Investigator Draft in 2022 to prepare for the upcoming year. Blackmon will play a key and instrumental role moving forward in helping the Clemson Chapter continue its mission to inspire the Rare Disease Community with hope.

“I got to hear from some amazing people who have rare diseases and hear their testimony and story. The way they’ve lived their life … that inspired me to want to help, let them know somebody is in their corner and somebody is fighting for them and representing them.”

Blackmon started his college career at Furman in 2020 before transferring to Clemson as a walk-on prior to the 2021 season. He made his debut for the Tigers last season on special teams against South Carolina State.
