Boyd invited to all-star challenge

COLUMBIA, S.C. (WACH) - After a record-setting career, former Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd will participate in the 2014 Quicken Loans All-Star Football Challenge later this month.

Individual events include quarterback accuracy, hands competition, and lineman strength challenge, among others.

Boyd finished his playing career as one of the most prolific passers in Atlantic Coast Conference history. The two-time First Team All-ACC selection threw for a conference-record 107 touchdowns and accounted for a league-best 133 scores during his career. In 47 career games at Clemson, Boyd threw for 11,904 yards and 107 TDs and posted 12 of the top 14 single-game passing-yardage totals in Clemson history.

The 16th annual showcase of some of the college game's brightest stars program is scheduled to air Tuesday, Jan. 28, at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

More than 50 former first-round NFL draft picks and three Heisman Trophy winners have participated in the event over the years.
