Clemson vs. Georgia Tech Game Notes

September 11, 2004

• Leroy Hill had 15 tackles on the night, including three for loss. He also had his second and third sacks of the season versus the Yellow Jackets. He now has 11 sacks and 34 tackles for loss in his career.

• Reggie Merriweather scored his first career touchdown in the fourth quarter when he broke away for a 62-yard run. The carry was the longest by a Clemson running back since Tommy Bowden began coaching the Tigers in 1999. It was the longest run from scrimmage by a Tiger tailback since Raymond Priester had a 65-yard carry versus South Carolina in 1996. He finished with eight carries for 90 yards.

• Kyle Browning followed Merriweather’s run with the second longest carry by a tailback under Bowden. He had a 54-yard run in the late fourth quarter to help put the game away for the Tigers. Browning had five carries for 80 yards.

• Clemson had six sacks in the game versus Georgia Tech. Bobby Williamson had his first career tackle and sack on the same play, a 16-yard loss for Georgia Tech quarterback Reggie Ball. Gaines Adams had his first sack of the season, a five-yard sack on the ensuing play after Williamson’s sack in the second quarter.

• Tye Hill established a career-high with four pass breakups in the contest. He also had his first sack of the season, the second of his career. He had two tackles for loss in the game.

• Curtis Baham caught his first pass of the season, a nine-yard completion on Clemson’s second offensive possession of the first quarter. He had his second career touchdown with 12:49 left in the second quarter, a 22-yard reception from Whitehurst.

• Cole Chason tied his career-best with a 50-yard punt in the first quarter.

• Ben Hall had his first reception of the season, a 26-yard grab in the closing moments of the first quarter.

• Tramaine Billie got his first career interception, courtesy of a pass breakup from Travis Pugh on a deep throw from Reggie Ball. It was also the first interception of the 2004 season for the Tiger defense.

• Kelvin Grant set a career-high with six catches for 80 yards. His previous high was five receptions at Wake Forest last season.

• Charlie Whitehurst had his first career punt on the opening possession for the Tigers, a 25-yard “quick kick” on fourth and six.
