About Out of Bounds
Out of Bounds is a fast paced show that covers all things sports both locally and nationally. Of course, Qualk and Ben talk all things Clemson, specifically, football, basketball and baseball. However, Out of Bounds also hits on current events outside of the Upstate, detailing the latest happenings in the NBA, NFL, MLB and collegiate sports around the country.
William Qualkinbush brings a youthful and enthusiastic presence to The Roar as the host Out of Bounds. Qualkinbush, or “Qualk”, has been broadcasting on WCCP since June 2011, when he got his start co-hosting and producing the Mickey Plyler Show and hosting his own show, Qualk Talk, on Saturday mornings from 10 AM- 12N. He took over the reins of Out of Bounds as the show’s full-time host in February 2014. During football season, Qualk co-hosts the Tiger Pregame Show on The Roar with Scott Rhymer. The Tiger Pregame Show airs six hours prior to every Clemson football game.
In addition to his sports talk radio work at the station, Qualk has worked in a variety of different sports-related fields, all with a Clemson focus or connection. He spent four years as a student assistant, and then a graduate assistant in the Clemson University Sports Information Department. He also spent his college years serving as a freelance writer, most frequently for the Daily Journal in Seneca and IPTAY Media, covering everything from youth and high school sports to the College World Series. Earlier in his college career, Qualk was a contributor for Bleacher Report and hosted his own sports radio program on the Clemson University campus station, WSBF.
Qualk also serves as the play-by-play voice for Clemson baseball and Clemson women’s basketball as well as the High School Football Game of the Week on The Roar. Qualk has experience as a public address announcer for the Clemson baseball team as well as Clemson volleyball, women’s basketball, track and field, men’s and women’s soccer and men’s and women’s tennis.
Qualk has deep roots within the Clemson community as a lifetime native of the upstate. He has served part-time as a worship and youth leader at Central First Baptist Church, where his father is the senior pastor. His parents are avid Clemson supporters and IPTAY donors who made sure he attended every home football game during his youth. Qualk is a graduate of nearby Daniel High School, where his mother teaches math, and a two-time graduate of Clemson University (Bachelor’s degree- 2010 and Master’s degree- 2013).
