Former Clemson kicker and Greer High football standout Nelson Welch is “doing great,” according to his mother Nancy, following a massive heart attack last Wednesday.

Nancy Welch says her son has been up and moving about while hospitalized and has also been eating, very positive signs according to those providing medical care.

Doctors cleared a 100 per cent blockage in one of Welch’s arteries last week and will now have him go through a rehab process before determining what procedure will be next in his recovery.

Welch hopes to return home this week but is still unable to receive visitors, according to Nancy Welch.
