Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Photo Of The Day
Today’s photo is of Chuck McSwain, who lettered for Clemson at running back from 1979-1982.
McSwain rushed for a career-high 151 yards and scored two touchdowns in Clemson’s 29-13 victory over South Carolina to cap an 11-0 regular season in 1981. Six weeks later, Clemson beat Nebraska in the Orange Bowl to win the National Championship.
McSwain said in an interview, "My brother Rod came to Clemson a year later, and we were very fortunate to both make a difference in that South Carolina game. He blocked a punt that turned the momentum and I ended up being the leading rusher. I broke out a couple of long runs and scored a couple of touchdowns. "
