Great read, thanks for posting. One of my favorites as well. I clearly remember watching the original "The Catch" in person. Over time I think many have forgotten how important "The Catch" was to Clemson rising to national attention after many years. Just so sad for his ALS.

Agree, great article! Probably one of the top 10 classiest men to play football at Clemson; always in a good mood and never rude or unkind; loved by his teammates. What a great battle he and Jim Stuckey had over dating Shawn Weatherly [a Clemson student who was Miss Universe], yet they both remained friends and later both played for the 49ers along with Archie Reese. So sad that it seems the nicest people get the worst diseases; he is one of the best...


Tigers did not pass much then, but I watched Dwight catch

a long td pass against Maryland. I think he was targeted only a few times that year, but that was an important catch in a tight game.
Also, Stuckey from Clemson was also on 49ers roster at the same time, and he was a star at Clemson and for the 49ers also.
