Buddy Gore

Today’s photo is of one of Clemson’s greatest running backs. Gore played at Clemson from 1965-1967 and was the first ACC tailback to lead the conference in rushing in consecutive seasons, including during his junior year, when he tallied 1,045 yards on 230 carries.

Gore was the first Clemson tailback to top 1,000 yards rushing, and he was named the ACC player of the year for 1967, the first Clemson player to earn the honor.

Gore was inducted into the Clemson athletics Hall of Fame in 1986 and the South Carolina Hall of Fame in 2000. He was also named to Clemson’s Centennial football team.
