CLEMSON, SC (WSPA) – A movie about Clemson University student Ray Ray McElrathbey which was partially shot on the university’s campus is set to release on December 11 on Disney+.

The streaming service announced the release date for the film “Safety” Wednesday afternoon on Twitter.

The movie is inspired by the life of McElrathbey, a Clemson student who took custody of his younger brother while playing football for the Tigers in 2006.

McElrathbey told the Associated Press that he was taking care of his brother so he wouldn’t have to go into foster care.

Filming for the movie took place throughout the Clemson campus in September of 2019.
