Father knows best: Jaycee Horn shares advice he received from Joe Horn
Former South Carolina star Jaycee Horn is becoming a bit of a face of the Carolina Panthers after they drafted him No. 8 overall in the NFL Draft.
During a recent photo shoot, Horn shared what his father, former NFL star Joe Horn, shared with him as he gets ready for his first NFL season.
“For sure. Daily, I’m talking to my dad, sending him some film, just letting him know what’s on my mental, how my body’s feeling,” Horn said in a video from the Panthers. “He always points me in the right direction and tells me the next steps I need to take. His advice ain’t led me wrong so far, so I’m still leaning on him for all the advice.”
Jaycee last season made two interceptions in just seven games played. Horn averaged 33.7 tackles per season at South Carolina and more than seven pass breakups per season. He also led all SEC players with just a 33 percent completion percentage allowed in 2020. Last season, he led the Gamecocks with eight passes defended.
A second-team all-SEC pick in 2020, Horn in 2019, made 40 tackles with nine pass breakups and two forced fumbles. In 2018, he earned SEC All-Freshman honors as he made 45 tackles with two sacks and eight pass breakups.
