Aug. 11, 1999
While the 1999 Clemson football team is young in the offensive line, the wide receiver corps is most experienced. For the first time in school history four players who had at least 20 receptions the previous year, return to the passing offense.
The group is led by seniors Brian Wofford and Mal Lawyer. Both natives of South Carolina, the classmates have combined for 138 receptions for 1923 yards and 16 touchdowns. They are already ranked eighth in Clemson history among receiving duos in the same class.
The record is 216 catches by Perry Tuttle (150) and Jerry Gaillard (66) from 1978-81. Lawyer and Wofford are just 47 receptions out of second place.
Wofford and Lawyer are already both in the top 20 in Clemson history in total receptions. Wofford is tied for 11th with Keith Jennings with 78 career catches, while Lawyer is 18th with 60. Wofford has 10 career touchdowns, tied for 10th in school history with Bennie Cunningham.
