ORLANDO, Fla, (Oct. 4) - Three Clemson football players have been
issued invitations to participate in the Rotary Gridiron Classic
presented by Tyco.


The all-star game pits Team USA, consisting of college seniors from
around the United States against Team Florida, composed of athletes
who either played college football in Florida or attended high school
in the Sunshine State. The game will be played on Saturday, January
26th at 2 p.m. (EST) at the Orlando Citrus Bowl. Pacific West Radio
Sports will also carry the game nationally on its network.


Tiger players issued invitations for play for Team USA include
quarterback Woody Danzler and running back Travis Zachery; while
strong safety Charles Hafley received an invitation to play for Team
Florida.


Classic alumni have included NFL Pro Bowl quarterback Daunte
Culpepper of the Minnesota Vikings and 2000 NFL Offensive Rookie of
the Year Mike Anderson of the Denver Broncos. Other participants
have included rising NFL stars Ron Dixon (New York Giants), Darren
Howard (New Orleans), Brad Meester (Jacksonville) and Erron Kinney
(Tenessee).


Former NFL Head Coaches lead the Rotary Gridiron Classic
teams, providing valuable insight and instruction to the players as
they begin their professional careers. Their guidance plays a key
part in the week of activities and practices, helping the players
with the transition to the NFL. Past Rotary Gridiron Classic head
coaches have included Lindy Infante (Green Bay/Indianapolis), Wayne
Fontes (Detroit), Chuck Noll (Pittsburgh) and Buddy Ryan
(Philadelphia/Arizona).
