Today’s photo is of Woody Dantzler, who lettered at quarterback for Clemson from 1998-2001. Dantzler redshirted for the 1997 season and went on to letter in 1998, 1999, and 2000. He wore #11 during the 1998 season and #1 during the 1999, 2000 and 2001 seasons.


Dantzler made his Clemson debut in Week 1 against Furman. However, Dantzler did not start until Week 5 against the North Carolina Tar Heels. In 1999, Dantzler became the starter over Brandon Streeter. He threw for 1,506 passing yards and 9 touchdowns in 1999. He also rushed for 723 yards, and 4 touchdowns.

In 2000 Dantzler led the Tigers to a 9-3 record. That year, Dantzler threw for 1,691 yards and 10 touchdowns. 956 of those yards and 6 of those touchdowns went to wide receiver Rod Gardner, who went on to be selected in the 1st round of the 2001 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins with the 15th pick overall.


Dantzler rushed for 1,075 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2001. Also in 2001, Dantzler became the first player in NCAA football history to pass for more than 2,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000 in a single season. His exact statistics in 2001 were 2,360 yards and 17 touchdowns (passing) and 1,004 yards and 10 touchdowns (rushing). He was also a Heisman trophy candidate in 2001.

In August of 2001, Dantzler graduated from Clemson with a degree in marketing. Dantzler was inducted into the Clemson football Hall of Fame in 2007. Dantzler holds 53 Clemson football records.

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

Today’s photos are a series of shots during the construction of the North Upper Deck in 1983.

The North Upper Deck is comprised of 22,500 yards of concrete, 2,200 Tons of reinforcing steel, 3,000 tons of asphalt, 5,800 gallons of paint, and 60,000 pounds of aluminum seating

The North Upper Deck height is 13.36 stories and the length is 560 feet. The total cost of the North Upper Deck was $13.5 million

To illustrate the quality of the investment of the upper deck.  The $13.5 million dollar investment is recovered in just 3 years (7 home games per year) in ticket sales.  Each game Clemson sells out the North Upper Deck, over $600,000 goes towards Clemson Athletics.

The North Upper Deck is slightly larger than the South Upper Deck. The reason for this is simple. Engineers had more room to build behind the North Upper Deck than they did behind the South Upper Deck (with Cemetery Hill behind the South). This al…
