by - Assoc. Editor -

I'm pleased to present today's Historic Clemson Photo, submitted by long time TigerNet member Mintaka®.

These historic posts will each have a sponsor with a very brief video message. After playing, the update and photos will replace the video.

Thank you very much, and enjoy! --Crump and B-Meist

This photo is of the 1958 UVA game in Death Valley. It's interesting to see how far the Tiger outfit has evolved. Also, for Virginia, this was the first game for their new head coach Voris. In his three years as head coach he would only win one game, and that would be the following week to Duke.

This photo is of the 1958 Furman game in Death Valley as the Tigers score another touchdown, and the Tigers would go on to win 36-19 before a crowd of only 20 thousand. This was the last regular season game for the Tigers. Like the UVA game, Furman also had another first year coach by the name of Bob King. Unlike Voris, King would keep his coaching job for another 15 years at Furman

Things were a little more informal in the late 50s too, intramural football was played in Death Valley. The WEZ stands were only a couple of years away too.
