DB (usually) Rod McSwain Gained 79 Yards as a WR for Clemson

DB Rodney (Rod) McSwain was a standout for Clemson in football land in track. Of note: he was a champion in both sports!


While at Clemson:

Rod McSwain enjoyed an outstanding Clemson career. During his time at Clemson, the Good Guys won a LOT of football games – including a 12-0 season that culminated in a National Championship.

But McSwain is probably best known for his excellent work on special teams to hurt the Gamechickens in their own stadium. Rod McSwain blocked not 1 - but 2 - Gamechicken kicks (one punt and one field goal attempt) in two separate games in Columbia.

1981: Blocked Punt:
In 1981, #2 ranked Clemson took its undefeated record to Columbia. The Tigers were hoping to keep the dream alive in marching toward a potential National Championship! According to GoUpstate.com:

“1981 Clemson 29, USC 13
Rod McSwain blocks a Chris Norman punt leading to Clemson's first touchdown. His brother Chuck McSwain scores two touchdowns and rushes for 151 yards. Unbeaten Tigers accept bid to play in Orange Bowl against Nebraska for national championship.”

https://www.goupstate.com/story/news/2002/11/24/reviewing-the-rivalry-step-by-step/29652290007/

1983: Blocked Field Goal Attempt:
Clemson was enjoying another excellent season. One week after setting the record for most balloons released at once, the Good Guys were in Columbia to close out the 1983 season. The Gamechickens, dressed in their all black uniforms, were attempting to take an early lead before Rod McSwain worked his special teams magic again. According to GoUpstate.com:

“1983 Clemson 22, USC 13
Ahead 12-10. Rod McSwain blocks USC's 48-yard field goal attempt. Clemson follows with a 74-yard drive culminating in Kevin Mack's 1-yard touchdown plunge.”

https://www.goupstate.com/story/news/2002/11/24/reviewing-the-rivalry-step-by-step/29652290007/

Of note: Rod McSwain also made an interception in Clemson’s win over defending National Champions UGa in 1981.

McSwain’s page in Clemson’s 1981 media guide:
https://tigerprints.clemson.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?params=/context/fball_media/article/1051/&path_info=bz6cni591a4pipn6l7i6zg814pqldg43.pdf

Being a multi-sport athlete, Rod McSwain also earned a championship in track for Clemson. Of note (as reported by the Rutherford County Sports HOF):

“McSwain, who also anchored Clemson's 1982 conference champion 400-meter relay team

https://www.rcshof.org/team/rodney-mcswain


After Clemson:

The Atlanta Falcons selected Rod McSwain with the 63rd Pick of the 1984 NFL Draft. He played seven NFL seasons; however all seven seasons were with the New England Patriots. Pro-Football-Reference.com provides Rod McSwain’s NFL statistics:

Rod McSwain: New England Patriots (1984-1990):
- 6 Interceptions Returned for 89 Yards
- 2 Fumble Recoveries Returned for 0 Yards
- 1 Kick Return for 0 Yards

https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/M/McSwRo20.htm

In 1992 and 1993, Rod McSwain extended his played in the Arena Football League. According to StatsCrew.com, he registered the following statistics in the Arena League:

- 9 Interceptions for 63 Yards
- 2 Kick Returns for 12 Yards

He's the only Clemson player I can remember being in any of my classes, though I did pass Fridge, William Devane, and a couple of other players walking in the opposite direction across the walkway in fromt of the library. They took up almost all of the space from side to side.

Which reminds me. The nursing school used to have a table set up on that walkway once or twice a year for the nursing students to check your blood pressure. All the guys getting checked by the young ladies would have high readings lol. Some of them would be making excuses like it's hot out here, I've been walking, etc.

Chuck McSwain was a running back for Clemson in early 80s. If I remember correctly, he never lost yardage on any running play while at Clemson.

South Carolina Highway 79 is a 9.34 mile two-lane rural state highway that runs from the south end at SC 9 near Bennettsville to the north end at NC 79 at the state line near Boykin. Parks and Recreation's Aziz Ansari is from Bennettsville.


Bishopville, South Carolina is 45 miles southwest of Bennettsville. Lee State Park is a 2,839 acre park established in 1935 east of Bishopville in Lee County along the Lynches River. It is one of the 16 South Carolina state parks built by the Civilian Conservation Corps (I've covered all but 4) with many of the original buildings still in use. It has park stuff like camping at 23 campsites, picnicking at 2 available shelters, hiking on 2 half mile trails, biking, bird watching, and fishing on Artesian Lake. There are 4 artesian wells that flow 24/7. There is also a park store, equestrian facilities with 12 miles of equestrian trails, a boardwalk that goes into the wetlands near the Lynches River, and an Environmental Education Center with exhibits about the wetlands and wildlife of the area. 145 species of birds have been seen at the park.
