Former Clemson Guard Nominated by Bush
Clemson, SC-Former Clemson point guard Bobby Conrad has been
nominated by President George Bush to be one of the top federal
prosecutors in the Carolinas. The 43-year-old Conrad now must be
confirmed by the United States Senate as United States Attorney for
the Western District of North Carolina.
United States Senator Jesse Helms recommended that Bush
nominate Conrad. "I am very honored to be nominated by the President
to head this office," said Conrad. "I intend to do my best to
vigorously prosecute the federal laws, while at the same time
honoring and protecting the rights of citizens in this area."
Conrad became a national figure last year when he was named
by then United States Attorney General Janet Reno to head up Justice
Department's task force investigating illegal campaign fund raising.
During the process in April of 2000 he questioned President Bill
Clinton and Vice President Al Gore.
Conrad was Clemson's starting point guard on the 1979-80 team
that advanced to the Final Eight of the NCAA Tournament. That is
still the only Clemson team to make it to the Final Eight of the
NCAAs. The Tigers were 23-9 that season and defeated six top 20
teams, most in a season in school history. Conrad was a three-time
Academic All-ACC selection.
