Frank Gillespie was Clemson's last three-sport letterman. He lettered in baseball in 1943 before spending three years in the Army.

After returning to Clemson, he was a starting guard on the Tiger football team for three years.

A native of Beckley, WV, Gillespie was also a starting guard in basketball for three years and played three more years of baseball, where he made the All-State team.

Gillespie double-majored in electrical engineering and textile engineering and served as president of his senior class. He received the McKelvin Award for the outstanding student-athlete of the Southern Conference.

Gillespie was inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame in 1977.
