NFL Player and Clemson Alum Chansi Stuckey to Donate $10 for each Point
Clemson Scores against Duke to Haitian Relief Fund
Clemson, SC – Cleveland Browns’ wide receiver and Clemson alum Chansi Stuckey plans to donate $10 for every point that the Clemson men’s basketball team scores against Duke this weekend to the Red Cross for Haitian relief.
The #16 ranked Clemson Tigers will host the #6 ranked Duke Blue Devils at Little John Coliseum on Saturday night at 9:05 pm ET. The game is being featured as part of ESPN’s College Game Day Series.
“My heart goes out to the people of Haiti right now,” says Stuckey. “I can’t imagine the devastation that they are facing. I hope things get much better for them very soon.”
Stuckey graduated from Clemson in 2006 after a stellar career in which he became the first Clemson player since the forties to score a Touchdown via pass, rush, punt return and reception and first since 1971 to earn All-ACC honors in consecutive seasons. He was also the first player in Clemson history to post consecutive games with multiple touchdown receptions.

CLEMSON — The Clemson University Athletic Department, the Clemson University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and the Clemson University Undergraduate Student Government, in conjunction with the Pickens County Chapter of the American Red Cross, will collect donations to provide to the Haiti Relief Fund at the Clemson vs. Duke men’s basketball game on Saturday, Jan. 23.
