Columbia, S.C. –
South Carolina freshman wide receiver Tim Frisby will appear on The Jane Pauley Show today, January 3. The show can be seen locally in Columbia at 5 p.m. on WLTX.

The theme of the show is second chances, and the show will feature multiple stories from people from different walks of life. Frisby is the lone representative from the world of sports.

Frisby’s story has been well-documented this year, as he walked on to the Gamecock football team and competed at the age of 39. The 20-year Army veteran and father of six, Frisby earned the Keith Jackson Award for Excellence and the Walt Disney World of Sports Spirit Award for his perseverance.

Following is the Jane Pauley Show’s description of what will be aired:

What happens when dreams don’t come true the first time? When fate gets in the way? Sometimes, we’re given a second chance. Whether the catalyst was luck, sheer personal determination, or the efforts of a loved one, today we hear touching stories from people who were given a second chance to experience life events that were missed the first time around!

After 20 years of duty with the U.S. Army, Tim decided to pursue his dream of playing college football. And now, as a 39-year old walk-on for the University of South Carolina – where he is affectionately called “Pops” by his teammates – Tim is living his dream!
