Slow Down, You Crazy Child: Restaurant Asked To Take Clowney's Name Off Marquee

The owner of a sandwich shop in NFL Draft prospect Jadeveon Clowney's hometown of Rock Hill, S.C., said that he will "comply with a request" to change the restaurant's marquee sign, which refers to the former Univ. of South Carolina All-American, according to Don Worthington of the ROCK HILL HERALD. The message outside Charlie Ruffalo's Sub Station II for three weeks has read, "Hurry in for our Jadeveon Clowney sub it goes really fast." Ruffalo said that the message "refers to the two speeding tickets Clowney got" last month. He added that the shop "has not profited from using Clowney's name." However, Ruffalo said that Bus Cook, Clowney's agent, has "requested Clowney's name be removed from the marquee and if it wasn't removed threatened legal action." Ruffalo noted that he will "change the message Monday, but added Clowney's name will continue to appear on the sign" (ROCK HILL HERALD, 1/24).
