GREENSBORO, NC – Aaron Kelly expects the atmosphere to be “electric” Saturday night when Clemson takes on Boston College for the Atlantic Division title and a spot in the 2007 Dr Pepper ACC Championship Game.

Don’t be surprised if Kelly supplies a lot of the voltage for the Tigers.

A fourth-year junior, Kelly has been a key figure in Clemson’s recent hot streak. In the last five games, four of them victories, he has caught 39 passes for 499 yards and eight touchdowns. For the season he ranks second in the ACC with 67 receptions, first with 841 receiving yards and first by far with 11 touchdown catches.

“I’m just making the most of my opportunities whenever the ball is thrown my way,” he said. “I’m a lot better now in terms of how to read coverages because I’ve learned more about football each year. Physically, each year I’ve gotten a little bit bigger and stronger and been able to polish my skills.”
