Today’s photo is of Steve Fuller, quarterback for the Tigers. Fuller is one of the most decorated players in Clemson football history.
In 1974, Fuller was selected to the Shrine Bowl of the Carolinas as a high school senior and later added to the Shrine Bowl Wall of Fame. Fuller was named ACC Player of The Year and 1st team Academic All-American in 1977.
During the 1978 season, Fuller was once again named ACC Player of the Year and 1st Team Academic All-American in addition to earning 3rd Team All-American. Fuller was also honored as only 1 of 11 scholar athletes by the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame in addition to being named the 1978 Gator Bowl MVP.
Fuller was inducted into Clemson Hall of Fame in 1985 and selected to Clemson Centennial Team in 1986. On September 3rd 1994, Fuller was selected along with Frank Howard and Banks McFadden as the original members of the Clemson Ring of Honor and is only the 2nd Clemson athlete in history to have his number retired.
