|Duncan enjoys Gamecock upset|
Francis Duncan of Ferriday knows something about big games.
Duncan, who played collegiate ball at Lousiana Tech, was named Defensive MVP when the Ferriday Trojans lost to John Curtis in the Class AA state championship game at the Louisiana Superdome in 1984.
Saturday, Duncan was in Oxford watching his son, Francis Duncan Jr., compete with Jacksonville State as the Gamecocks upset Ole Miss 49-48 in double overtime.
"It was quite a day," Duncan said. "I know Francis is still excited."
It was the first time Jacksonville State had beaten a Football Bowl Subdivision team since Sept. 27, 2001, when the Gamecocks beat Arkansas State. The 21-point deficit was the largest Jacksonville State has overcome in school history.
Francis Duncan Jr., a true sophomore, had one tackle and broke up two passes from his cornerback position.
Duncan was recruited by Clemson and was hoping to attend that school, but the Tiger coaching staff signed another cornerback and backed off of Duncan.
"He decided to walk on at Jacksonville State," Francis Duncan Sr., said.
Duncan moved to Georgia as part of his military duty. Francis Duncan Jr., played at Cartersville High School. He was a four-year letterman and an All-County selection. Duncan finished his senior season with 56 tackles and a pair of interceptions.
