My Favorite Clemson FB Player

I love our program, it’s culture, what it produces on and off the field, what it represents. It used to be a lot easier to pick a favorite, but now we have so many incredible players, so many incredible young men, that I don’t even feel the need to try and narrow it down. Here’s to another class off great young men, some who were better than others on the field, but a brotherhood of Tigers who step away from Tigertown to build their own legacies. From TL16 and ETN to our walkons, congratulations and go chase your dreams young men!

Love this class but my fav player ever was Woodrow Dantzler.

That dude could run, throw, block, and was one of the most electrifying QBs to watch. Every play you knew he was capable of taking it to the house. And he often did!

I have to say ETN because he is the first running back to remind me of Walter Payton since.....Walter Payton. He runs with passion and heart and he is not afraid to lower his shoulder and Bury some fools!!!!!

Woody Dantzler

Woody was a great athlete and never received the credit due him as a passer. He was also almost impossible to bring down in the open field due to his speed, power, and balance.

I believe that it was the 1999 game at Wake (perhaps the 2000 game) when Woody was asked to start in place of Brandon Streeter. Streeter dressed out but had a sore shoulder from the previous game. Wake quickly learned to key off of Woody dropping back to pass and then trying a quarterback draw. They shut that down and I believe we only scored 3 points in the first half. The second have began with our offense huddled on the field. I noticed that Streeter had his helmet on and ran onto the field. I also noticed Woody standing with the rest of the offense on the sideline and pumping both hands in the air and yelling encouragement. A true Tiger in every sense. We have been blessed to watch and pull for many true Tigers!!!

Bennie Cunningham. What our offense could do with a player who could block, and run and catch passes at 6ft 5inches and 250lbs. Had track speed.

ETN, was truly a record breaking back for us; however he never mastered the art of blocking for his qb. JMO

I don’t have a favorite, but I think Brandon Streeter deserves honorable mention. That guy had no OL protection and used to take a wicked beating, yet he’s still with us, helping us win.

Wow, tough question to come up with a single definitive answer but here's my picks.

Stacey Driver, Anthony Parete & Mike Eppley from the 80's teams. Stacey and Anthony were friends.

Current group would start with Ben Boulware and in no particular order, Hunter, ETN and Wilkins. So much joy and passion in those four.

Deshaun Hunter Watson Renfrow. Those two will always be

Guess you can tell by name, but believe spiller was one of greatest players ever. He should’ve been a Heisman, but Clemson was a shell of what they are now. Also Keith Adams was a dynamic sack machine, just bad timing. Love all the guys over last 6 years. It’s been amazing, but I do believe CJ played a huge role in the turnaround and notoriety for Dabo convincing him to come. Go tigers!

Mark my words Phil Mafah will be a star.

When Danny needed a couple of tough yards, Tracy got the ball.
I honestly don’t think he ever lost yards on a carry.

He scored point 63 against the coots.

Chansi Stuckey scored the last touchdown but Fletcher kicked the extra point.

AAron Hunt was slap tired after kicking so many extra points.
