Sorry to hear that. A true Gamecock legand.
Also John Gorsage, who was on Frank McGuire first team at Carolina, passed away Friday.

There have been better football players at the University of South Carolina ... maybe.

There have been more colorful football players to wear the garnet and black ... maybe.

Combine the two -- skill and shenanigans -- and forget the “maybes.” Alex Hawkins stands alone in Carolina lore.
Good cook too.

Johnny used to play basketball at my house all the time and Kelly is my sister's best friend. They lived 3 houses away and Mr. For safe was pretty cool growing up always had time for all the neighborhood kids.

The legend

When he stayed out all night (which he frequently did), his wife, sick with worry, looked everywhere. He walked in the house one morning at 8. Libby, his first wife, greeted him. “Alex,” she screamed anxiously, “where have you been?”


Alex replied, “I have been out in the hammock all night. The moon was so beautiful I didn’t want to leave it.” His wife, fraught with worry, said frantically, “Do you expect me to believe that? We took the hammock down two weeks ago.”


“Well,” Alex replied, “that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.”

He played a police chief in the Burt Reynold's movie Gator and had a minor role in one called The Slugger's wife.

By coincidence or by design a year after Gator the role played by Burt Reynolds, Billy Clyde Puckett, in Semi-Tough was based on Alex according to Dan Jenkins who wrote the book.
