2005 Preseason >> Now 40 years old, Frisby has one of the most inspirational and well-documented stories in college football history ... Has executives from several big-name Hollywood movie studios watching him closely for the purposes of making a movie about him when his collegiate career ends ... Steve Spurrier said in the offseason that Frisby will catch a pass in 2005 ... Brought the crowd to its feet when he made a catch for eight yards in the Garnet and Black Spring Game ...Earned the Harold White Offensive G.P.A. Award during the spring with a 3.6 mark in broadcast journalism.

2004 >> Was touted as one of the biggest stories in all of college football, as the 39-year-old walk-on receiver and father of six children, who just so happened to be a former U.S. Army Ranger who served in the first Gulf War and in the conflict in Kosovo, earned coast to coast publicity for the Gamecock program ... Walked on the Gamecock squad in the spring and went through much of practice unheralded, until the media picked up on his age and his background, and the rest, they say is history ... Once his eligibility was cleared by the NCAA during preseason camp, he instantly became a national story ... Media requests came pouring in by the dozens, as did offers from major motion picture companies and book publishers who wanted to portray his life's story ... Appeared as a guest on Late Night with David Letterman, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, ESPN's Cold Pizza, and was featured on NBC's Today Show, Live From CNN, and Good Morning America ... Received a pair of prestigious post-season honors, earning the inaugural Keith Jackson Award for Excellence and the Walt Disney World of Sports Spirit Award ... Played in two games on the year - vs. Troy and vs. Clemson.
