October 4th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Running Down The Hill In 1989

(Photo Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photo is from 1989 and the Wake Forest game in Death Valley. The photo is unique because it was taken from the East Endzone scoreboard.

A couple of points about the picture. Notice Wake Forest coming towards the hill to taunt Clemson. The Tigers won the game 44-10!

Also, this was the last home game for Coach Ford, as he would be “fired” just a month later. So this photo is the last time you see Coach Ford running down the hill as Clemson’s coach, even though the photographer had no idea that his was capturing that moment.

(Note: If you have old pictures dating before 1990 that are Clemson related and you would like to share them, send them to me in an email with as much information about the picture as you can give and I will use it for a future “Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day”).
