While driving around Gainesville shortly after Clemson won the College Football Playoff national championship, Louis Hokayem saw the ideal spot. There in the heart of downtown, on the side of the old Regions Bank building at 111 Green St., was the perfect place for the Deshaun Watson design he created four months ago. Hokayem began launching plans to create a temporary banner to honor the Gainesville High graduate who quarterbacked the Tigers to the football national title.
