Hall to Return to Clemson Football Team
Bell Hall hauls in a touchdown in the last year's Tangerine Bowl.
Clemson, SC-Clemson tight end Ben Hall, a starter in seven of 13
games in 2002, will return to the Tiger football team for the 2003
season. He made the announcement in a statement released on Friday.
Hall, a native of Wellford and graduate of Byrnes High School, did
not participate in Spring practice and had stated that he did not
plan on returning to Clemson for next season. A junior in 2003,
Hall caught 12 passes for 161 yards and a touchdown in 2002. He was
a third-team freshman All-America tight end according to The Sporting
News in 2001 when he caught eight passes, including three for
touchdowns, a record for a Clemson first-year freshman. He has
played in 25 consecutive games over two years.
"Ben will be allowed to return to the Clemson program, but he will
have to satisfy some disciplinary measures in the off-season," said
head coach Tommy Bowden. "He missed all of spring practice and will
have to work his way back up the depth chart."
"I wish to thank Coach Bowden for allowing me to return to the team,"
said Hall. "I regret that I left the team in March, and I have
learned some valuable lessons along the way. I will perform any
disciplinary tasks, and will work as hard as I can to make a positive
contribution to the Clemson team in 2003."
