Mac Lain has nice surprise for former Clemson teammate

Since 2016, the ACC in conjunction with the College Football Playoff Foundation has funded more than 1,100 classroom projects through the “Extra Yard for Teachers” program, impacting over 116,000 students at nearly 450 schools.

During Saturday’s edition of “The Huddle” show on ACC Network, host Jordan Cornette and analysts Eric Mac Lain, E.J. Manuel and Mark Richt were each given the opportunity to present a $1,000 check to one of the teachers that made an impact on their life.

Mac Lain surprised former Clemson offensive lineman and current Powdersville High School teacher Ryan Norton with a check in a pre-recorded video that Norton thought at first was just a normal interview through Zoom.
