Today’s photo is of Chester McGlockton, who lettered for Clemson at defensive tackle from 1989-1991.

McGlockton was a High School All-American as a Tight End/Defensive Lineman at Whiteville High School in Whiteville, North Carolina. He played Varsity Football all four years. During his senior year he led the Whiteville Wolfpack to a 15-0 record, a State Championship, and a USA Today National Ranking.

As a freshman at Clemson, McGlockton scored a touchdown as a freshman in the 1989 Gator Bowl vs. the West Virginia Mountaineers.

McGlockton was drafted by the Los Angeles Raiders in the 1st round (16th overall) of the 1992 NFL Draft. He played six seasons with the Raiders, earning all four of his Pro Bowl appearances with them. McGlockton also played for the Kansas City Chiefs, the Denver Broncos, and ended his career by playing one season with the New York Jets. McGlockton finished his NFL career with 51 sacks including a career season high of 9.5 in 1994.

At the start of 2009, he was an intern coach with the University of Tennessee football team. He accepted a defensive assistant position at Stanford in 2010 and worked on David Shaw's staff.

McGlockton died of an enlarged heart on November 30, 2011
