Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Photo Of The Day

Stacey Driver was a tailback at Clemson from 1982-1985.

Driver played as a running back at Griffin High School and was given the title of All-State and All American. At Clemson, Driver was nicknamed the “Ricochet Rabbit” for his quickness and ability to bounce off of tackles.

Driver spent the better part of his career as Clemson’s “other” running back. Terry Allen came to Clemson and took some of Driver’s carries away.

But Driver was a part of a unique game at Clemson. The 1983 team was on probation and could not officially win the ACC Championship. However, as the Tigers finished the ACC Regular Season with a home game versus Maryland, the Tigers would earn the league’s best ACC record if they could beat the Terrapins and Boomer Esiason. This was the game where Central Spirit amassed over 300,000 balloons for the record launch.

Driver guided Clemson to a big game, and as Driver scored a touchdown late in the game to give the Tigers a 42-7 lead, Clemson’s play by play announcer Jim Phillips said on air “Bring on Nebraska”. Nebraska, at the time, was the #1 team in the nation and Clemson was ineligible for a bowl game In 1987.

Driver signed with the Cleveland Browns as a free agent; he played for one season before sustaining a serious knee injury.

One of the great things about football season is that it offers the opportunity to welcome people to Clemson (either for the first time or after a long time away).  

At Clemson, we believe that we have something special and are excited to showcase that special college football environment each time we host a visitor.  Our goal  is very simple:  To be incredible hosts to our visitors and provide the ultimate game day experience.

There is an additional buzz in the air for Week 2 at Clemson, as we host the the Auburn Tigers and their fans for what should be an electric game day weekend with two Top 15 football teams in an ACC vs. SEC match-up in prime time!  We hope that your trip here will be exciting, memo…
