Today’s photo is of B.C. Inabinet, who lettered for Clemson at right tackle from 1953-1955.

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.

There is an additional buzz in the air for Week 2 at Clemson, as we host the the Auburn Tigers and their fans for what should be an electric game day weekend with two Top 15 football teams in an ACC vs. SEC match-up in prime time!  We hope that your trip here will be exciting, memo…

Construction Of The North Upper Deck In 1983

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)
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…
