Clemson, SC-Clemson will celebrate the 20-year anniversary of its
1981 National Championship on November 3rd at Death Valley. Over
100 former players and coaches are expected to attend, said retired
Head Athletic Trainer Fred Hoover, who is coordinating the event.
The team will have a private reception on Friday evening, November 2
at the Madren Center on the Clemson Campus. The team will be
available for autographs outside the Fike Recreation Center on
Saturday, November 3, from 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm. Current Ring of Honor
member Jeff Davis and soon to be inducted member Terry Kinard will be
on the Tailgate Show at 2:00 pm located next to Littlejohn Coliseum.
They will also be available for autographs.


The 1981 team will march from Fike to "The Hill" at 2:45 pm where
they will enter the stadium by Running Down The Hill during pre-game
ceremonies. Terry Kinard will then be honored by the College
Football Hall of Fame, and will be inducted into the Clemson Ring of
Honor at Memorial Stadium. Kinard will be formally inducted into the
College Hall of Fame in New York City in December. Each inductee
has an on-campus ceremony during the season and this will be Kinard's.
Mrs. A.C. Brown and Mrs. Coral Harper will dot the "i" during the
pregame ceremonies in memory of former player Gary Brown and Coach
Tom Harper who have passed away since the 1981 National Championship
season.


Over 30,000 orange pom pons recognizing the reunion will be
distributed as fans enter Memorial Stadium compliments of BI LO.
