While driving from South Carolina to the Tennessee Titans training camp in Tennessee, linebacker Jonathan “Tig” Willard helped save a woman, her three children and their dog from a car fire, according to David Hood of TigerNet.com. Willard was driving along Interstate 40 in Tennessee when he noticed a car ahead of him driving on the road with black smoke coming out of it.  He sped up and honked his horn and flashed his lights and finally got the woman driving the car to pull it over to the side of the road. “When she pulled over, the car was really on fire at that point,” Willard said. “The driver, she acted like she was in some kind of daze or something. She told me that she didn’t stop because she didn’t think it was her car that was on fire. Another guy stopped, and we managed to get the kids and the dog out and get them to safety, and then I finally got the woman out.” By that time, the car was engulfed in flames. “I was just glad we got the kids and all of them out of the car,” Willard said. “I was thinking that I was just doing what everybody else would do, but there were cars just going past us and no one else was stopping, so I don’t know if that is what would happen or not.” Willard said the woman “kept thanking me,” and that the car “went up quick.” Willard signed a free agent contract with the Titans following the 2013 NFL Draft.  As a senior at Clemson University, Willard recorded 95 tackles with 10.5 for loss and three sacks.
