CLEMSON, SC -- On Friday the Clemson Athletic Department held a ground breaking ceremony to mark the beginning of construction on the East endzone renovation at Clemson Memorial Stadium.

Among those participating in the ground breaking were Dean Walter Cox, a former Clemson president and a member of the 1940 Cotton Bowl team and Athletic Director Bobby Robinson.

Also present were executive secretary of IPTAY George Bennett, President of IPTAY Bob Dye, head of Tiger Letterman Association Charlie Bussey, member of the collegiate IPTAY club and representing the student body, Tony Elum, and several officials from the construction company responsible for the improvements. Dean Cox and Elum also participated in a ceremonial cutting of the fence around the hill with wire cutters.


Earlier this month the Clemson Board of Trustees approved the $1.6 million contract for improvements to the east end zone of Memorial Stadium. The work in the east end zone will include regrading the area, modifying the handicapped seating section, building a brick and wrought iron fence and entry gate, and installing a new sound system.


Work is also beginning on updating Paw Vision the video replay screen at Death Valley. The original Paw Vision screen was the first of its kind and plans were made to update it as technology improved.

Although not familiar with all the technological details of the new system, Athletic director Bobby Robinson compared it to upgrading from current TV standards to the new high definition televisions (HDTV). “It will be clearer and have more definition,” said Robinson.
