Clemson, SC-Clemson put on the full uniform on Saturday during a
three-hour morning practice on the practice fields behind the Jervey
Athletic Center. It was the fifth consecutive day of one practice
for Tommy Bowden's Tigers. The team will take a break for Fan
Appreciation Day on Sunday.

Fans will be able to meet with Clemson players and coaches on
the concourse under the South Stands at Clemson Memorial Stadium from
3:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

For the second straight day it appeared the defense was ahead
of the offense. "We worked a lot on short yardage and the defense
won that overall," said Bowden. "Six of the eight times we ran it
the defense stopped the offense. We will continue to work on that
area on offense, but I have been pleased with the performance of the
defense so far. You win championships with a great defense, we just
have to continue this consistently.

"It was a good first day in pads, but there was the normal
fatigue at times with some of the players. We had the first team
hit against the first team, the second team against the second team,
so there was good competition."

Bowden did single out a few individuals after their
performance in one-on-one drills. "Donnell Clark, Vontrell Jamison,
J.J. Howard, William Henry and Greg Walker stood out to me during the
one-on-one portion. I thought Mo Fountain had a good day all
around. He seemed to be in the offensive backfield most of the day.
He caused one fumble against Chansi Stuckey and also had another
sack."

Stuckey did turn perhaps the best individual play however
when he turned a third and short into a 40-yard touchdown run with
some fine open field moves. There were only minor injuries
reported. Todd McClinton who has missed the last three days of
practice after suffering a fainting episode on Thursday, was at
practice, but did not participate.

Two players missed the practice while attending Clemson
graduation ceremonies in Littlejohn Coliseum. Wide receiver Kevin
Youngblood and fullback Chad Jasmin earned their undergraduate
degrees on Saturday and participated in the ceremony. Clemson now
has eight players with degrees on its 2003 roster. All eight are
starters at their respective positions. The others are Gregory
Walker, William Henry, Tony Elliott, Khaleed Vaughn, J.J. Howard and
DeJuan Polk.
