If you have been following high school football in Georgia in the past few years, you’ve heard a lot of good things about Paul Tchio aka Paul Taco. Paul, whose parents came to the United States from Cameroon, is a star OL for Milton High School. These are exciting times for Paul as he’s about to embark on yet another exciting life passage.
Mr. Tchio has recently committed to join the football program at Clemson. Paul considered offers from Georgia and Tennessee, but Clemson was the best fit for him. Paul Tchio made an excellent name for himself as a highly rated OL and DL for the Milton High School football team that won the 2018 Georgia 7A State Championship against Colquitt County. In two of his many impressive showings in high school, he racked up 19 pancakes against North Forsyth as well as 2 sacks and 2 QB hurries against Mill Creek.
His ability to play all five positions on the O-Line as well as D-Line allowed Paul to distinguish himself as an unusually versatile member of the Milton football team. This experience will serve him well at Clemson.
Now that Paul Tchio has declared his commitment to Clemson football, the college sports world is excited to see how he can help the 2019 National Champs continue their success as a top notch football program. Not only is he an impressive athlete (who loves to play 1-on-1 basketball as well), Paul Tchio succeeds in the classroom. His commendable academic record includes a 3.0 GPA with a love for mathematics. He enjoys playing Madden, watching any Fast & Furious movies and listening to music in his free time — preferably rap artists like NBA Youngboy and many others.
Going into his senior season as a Milton Eagle, Mr. Taco is working hard to cement his legacy as the first captain to lead his team to the Mercedes Benz Dome in back-to-back seasons. Clemson fans should be excited to have a top class of 2020 O-line recruit with aspirations to play in the NFL on the way. In his own words, Paul Tchio’s “biggest goal is to make an impact at Clemson early!”
