Clemson, SC-Clemson offensive lineman Jermyn Chester will have season
ending knee surgery on his right knee. Clemson Head Coach Tommy
Bowden made the announcement on Monday after practice.

Chester, who had moved into a first-team position at guard
this spring, suffered an injury during practice on Wednesday, March
12. He will need reconstructive surgery on the knee and will miss
the season. The 2003 season was to be his fifth year, so his
football career at Clemson is over.

Chester started eight games during the 2002 regular season
at center. He played in 10 of the 13 games overall for a total of
544 snaps. He had 40 knockdown blocks and had an average film grade
of 75 percent during the 2002 season. He earned three letters during
his career, 2000, 2001 and 2002. He missed the 1999 season when he
needed reconstructive surgery on his left knee. He played guard,
center and tackle at different times during his career.

A native of Florida, Titusville, FL, Chester is a computer
engineering major with over a 3.0 career GPA.
