1969 Clemson-GT Game

Posted: Sep 20, 2018 10:31 PM

It was the first time I remember us winning in Grant's Tomb. I was home for the week-end and took off to The Cellar in Charlotte to celebrate. At the time, my parents were on a trip in New England and not expected to be back until the following Tuesday-Wednesday.

Well, I got home about 1:15 am and the house was completely lit up, and their station wagon in the driveway. I tried to sneak in, but you don't sneak in when you've had what I had.

When I saw my Mom and Dad, all I could say was "Raise H3ll, Clemson beat Jawja Tech in Atlanta!!!"
Before my parents could say ANYTHING, my sister came to my defense saying, "Leave him alone, he's got a right to celebrate."

They let me go to bed and the next morning I had to go to Church at 9:45 am(20 minute ride across town). Miraculously I did not have an over-hang as the guys in New F called "the morning after the night before".

Found out later they got home about 30 minutes after I left for Charlotte, and my recently-graduated from CU sister was a big tattle-tale, but felt sorry for me six hours later...

Ray Yauger had a great game ... under-rated Tiger RB.***

I played in that game. First time in many years we won in Atlanta. Coach Howard loved it.
