The student, upset about how the university was distributing tickets to game, created a fake ID and identified himself as an ESPN operations tech named “Rocco Refsnyder.”
The story, published originally by The Tab, a website that covers college and youth culture, said the undergraduate student used Photoshop to create a faux ESPN identification badge.
According to “The Tab,” the student posted the badge on Snapchat identifying himself as an ESPN operations technician.
The badge allowed him to clear security at at Death Valley and hang out on the sideline during the game.
The Clemson student declined an interview request via email and wrote, “I am afraid I do not want anymore stories written about the incident as I would like it to die down.”
ESPN also declined to comment.
Joe Galbraith, Clemson’s assistant athletic director, said the university is aware of the “Rocco Refsnyder” situation and is looking into it with their operations and facilities teams.
Could this all be fake? Just as fake as the ID Rocco used to get to Clemson‘s sideline.
