Benjamin Claude Inabinet was born in Columbia, S.C. in 1934. Inabinet was an All-State football player at Dreher High School in Columbia, S.C. and led his team to a State AA Championship his senior year.
Inabinet played football at Clemson for Coach Frank Howard from 1953-1955. Standing nearly 6 feet 7 inches tall and weighing over 260 pounds, Inabinet was believed to be the largest football player ever to attend Clemson at that time.
As a senior Inabinet earned an honorable mention All-American recognition and was chosen to play in the North vs. South College All-Star Game held at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla. on December 26, 1955.
Inabinet was a fourth round draft choice of the Baltimore Colts but opted to sign with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. His career was abbreviated by injuries.
Inabinet was an active community leader. He was a member of the Clemson Alumni Association; Chairman of the Richland County IPTAY Club; President of the Greater Columbia Clemson Club, founded in 1958; member of the Greater Columbia Chamber of Commerce; and the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce.
