Clemson, SC – Current prominent professional athletes Lucas Glover and Khalil Greene highlight the 2007 Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame induction class. The eight-person class was announced Thursday by Charlie Bussey, the executive director of the Clemson Letterwinners Association. The formal induction ceremonies will take place September 7-8, the weekend of Clemson’s home football game against Louisiana Monroe.
In addition to Glover, one of the top professionals on the PGA Tour, and Greene, the starting shortstop for the San Diego Padres, the 2007 inductees include former Clemson All-ACC basketball guard Terrell McIntyre, former All-ACC women’s basketball player Amy Geren, and former All-America track athlete Kerry Robinson.
Three former Clemson football players are also in the class. The list includes former All-ACC running back Lester Brown, former All-America place kicker Nelson Welch and former All-ACC quarterback Woody Dantzler.
It is a young class considering that Greene, Dantzler and Glover all competed at Clemson at the same time during the 2000-01 academic year. All eight are prominent on the career lists in their respective sports. Greene is first in Clemson baseball history in career hits and RBIs, Dantzler is second in Clemson history in career total offense on the football field, Brown is second in Clemson history in career touchdowns, Welch is first in school history in field goals and second in career scoring, McIntrye is second in career scoring on the hardwood, and Glover is third in school history in career stroke average. Geren is Clemson’s career leader in free throw percentage and Robinson still holds the women’s track records in the 3,000 meters and the 5,000 meters.
Lucas Glover was a three-time All-American between 1998-2001, including a first-team selection as a junior and senior. He helped the Clemson program to four top 10 national finishes, including a second-place finish in 1998 and a third-place finish in 2001. Glover still ranks third in Clemson history in career stroke average with a 71.95 average and he is third in rounds at par or better (86). Glover was named to the ACC 50-Year Anniversary team in 2002. A member of the United States Walker Cup team in 2001, the Clemson graduate is in his fourth full season on the PGA Tour and ranked 21st on the final money list in 2006.
Glover is the grandson of Dick Hendley, Clemson Hall of Fame inductee in 1984. Hendley played football and baseball at Clemson between 1946-51. This is the first grandfather and grandson hall of fame combination in Clemson athletic history.
