May 9th Clemson Historic Picture Of The Day

Football Reunions, 58 Years Apart

(Photos Uploaded By Alan Cutts)

Today’s photos are of two separate football reunions, both honoring teams that meant so much to Clemson.

The above photo is from the 1953 football season where we see the 1923 football team reunion. On this particular day, the 1923 celebrated their 30th anniversary by hamming it up a bit for the cameras.

This 1923 team was coached under William H. "Navy Bill" Saunders and went 5-2-1 on the season.

A more recent reunion was held on September 23, 2006 and was for the 1981 National Championship team. On this day, the 1981 team was honored for their 25th anniversary during the football game in Death Valley.

But before the game, the team took a moment to pose for a group picture in Jervey Gym.
