Today’s photo is of Cary Cox, who lettered for Clemson at center from 1946 and 1947.

Cary Cox played on Clemson’s JV team prior to the war. He then joined the Navy and later ended up playing at South Carolina and became their team captain. (The Navy would let students play football but the Army didn’t).

After the war Cox returned to Clemson and played football during the 1946 and 1947. He also was the team captain.

Cary Cox was the only player to be team captain at both Clemson and South Carolina.
