The Greer football team got a big taste of how much the business community loves its Yellow Jackets.

Jimmy Chulkas and the Clock Restaurant family and employees treated the 2013 edition of the Greer football team and its coaches to a free meal this afternoon. It’s become an annual event during the middle of Camp Swarm, a three-day team bonding and intensive summer camp.

“They support us 364 days a year, we can support them for one,” Chulkas said. “They are always well-mannered, they say thank you and appreciate coming here.”

Chulkas said he remembers some of them as toddlers when their parents visited the Clock. “My dad goes back to 1973 and remembers their families further back.”

The players could order any item off the menu. Many ordered chicken strips and fries.

Chulkas, glancing at the players, gave his own general scouting report. “I think they look bigger than last year, especially the defensive line.”

If Chulkas needed a measuring tool, he could look at the bill that measured taller than he was against last year’s.
