May 11th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Clemson’s Head Cheerleader

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are of Randy Jackson, Clemson’s head cheerleader in 1972. The above photo shows Randy in action, doing everything he can to pump up this Tiger crowd that was “suffering” from the last few seasons of the Hootie Ingram era at Clemson.

Randy is the father of someone you may know of on Tigernet, ShoelessCU. If you don’t know ShoelessCU, you have certainly seen some of the videos of Clemson football that he has created and posted via the web and Youtube.

Joe’s dad was Randy Jackson, and he posted a nice tribute on Tigernet several years ago about his father that included a bunch of great stories about being the head cheerleader at Clemson. Here you can read the thread and see some accompanying pictures.

The next picture is of Randy Jackson in the old Tiger suit, nicknamed the Rat Pack. It was dubbed the Rat Pack because of how hot it was to wear the suit.

And here is one final picture of Randy saluting the student section during the Clemson/South Carolina game in 1972 (see chicken Randy has in his hand). I assume this was his last game as the head cheerleader and Tiger.
