Take A Virtual Tour of the Locker Room

When Clemson’s football players returned to campus for the second session of summer school in 2004, they reported to a new football locker room and player lounge area within the Jervey Athletic Center.

The 4200-square-foot facility has all the modern conveniences, including a player lounge that includes seven plasma televisions and four computer work stations.

The lounge also features murals that document Clemson’s greatest players, greatest victories, and prominent former players who have gone on to the NFL.

The following is a rundown of the some of the features of Clemson’s new lounge and locker room:

  • The locker room area is divided into eight sections, with the lockers corresponding to each player’s uniform number. There are 115 lockers in all. Each section of the locker room is highlighted by a logo and picture of historical significance from a bowl game Clemson has played in. Each section also features large interchangeable action photos of recent Clemson players.
  • Each player has a new mahogany locker that features a helmet storage area and a storage compartment below a padded seat. There is also a private lock box for personal items.
  • Each locker features a large Tiger Paw that introduces the helmet storage area and a personalized name plate.
  • The lounge area features seven plasma televisions, complete with split-screen capabilities. All are tied to a central video hub. The television area also contains an Academic Hall of Fame, complete with photographs and accomplishments of Clemson’s academic All-Americans and award winners.
  • The lounge also features four computer work stations to enhance communications capabilities with professors or advisors at Vickery Hall.
  • One wall of the lounge contains a complete list (by team) of every former Tiger who has played in an NFL game. Another wall is a mural of Clemson’s All-Century team (chosen in 1996 in conjunction with the 100th year of Clemson football).
  • The entrance is dominated by a 30’x9′ picture of Death Valley taken at night from Howard’s Rock.
  • The locker room and lounge areas also feature pictures from Clemson’s 13 ACC Championship teams and the 1981 National Championship team.
  • The back of the locker room, which has a new exit to the practice field, features a picture of Clemson players running down the Hill and rubbing Howard’s Rock. It is the last image seen by each Clemson player as he heads to the practice field.
