Today’s photo is of Homer Jordan, who lettered for Clemson at quarterback from 1980-1982 and led Clemson to a National Championship in 1981. Jordan was the starting quarterback for the 1981 Championship team that beat the Nebraska Cornhusters in the 1982 Orange Bowl. He was also an All-ACC selection that year.

Jordan finished his college career completing 250 of 479 passes for 3,643 yards with 15 touchdowns and 27 interceptions. He was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in 1993.

After playing 4 years in the Canadian Football League, Jordan spent the 1987 with the Cleveland Browns.
