Clemson grads to appear on ‘Shark Tank’


CLEMSON, S.C. (WSPA) — A group of former Clemson University students will appear on an upcoming episode of “Shark Tank.”

Logan and fellow Clemson graduates Teddy Giard and Austin Maxwell pitched the idea for the lightweight, insulated cooler to the show’s panel in September.
