Whitehurst to Start at Quarterback on Saturday

by -

Clemson Head Coach Tommy Bowden said Monday afternoon that
freshman Charlie Whitehurst would start at quarterback for the Tigers
against North Carolina on Saturday at Chapel Hill.

It will be the second straight start for the rookie from
Duluth, GA. In his first start he led the Tigers to a 34-31 victory
at Duke. He completed 34-52 passes for 420 yards and four scores in
that game. The completion total and passing yardage total were
Clemson single game records and the touchdown pass total tied a
school record.

For his efforts this past Saturday he was named ACC Offensive
Back of the Week. He is the first Clemson offensive player to be
honored by the league this year.
