Clemson, S.C. - Lieutenant Governor André Bauer will award former Clemson Head Football Coach Danny Ford the Palmetto Patriot prior to kickoff of the University of Miami vs. Clemson University football game on Saturday. The presentation will take place at Death Valley on the 35 yard line, at 11:49am.


Ford led the Clemson football team from 1978-1989, winning five Atlantic Coast Conference Championships and an NCAA National Championship in 1981.


“Coach Ford is legendary in NCAA football history and certainly in the state of South Carolina,” Bauer said. “His accomplishments off the field are just as remarkable. He is a man who all South Carolinians should be proud to call one of our own.”


The Palmetto Patriot Program was established by Lieutenant Governor Bauer, and it recognizes individuals who have made outstanding contributions to their fellow citizens and the State of South Carolina. The Palmetto Patriot Award is given for one's commitment to public service within their state and community. The award is the highest the Lieutenant Governor can bestow.
