Clemson Athletics Black History: C.J. Spiller

C.J. Spiller was the most exciting Clemson player in history.  He will be recognized for that in 2021 when he is inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

Spiller scored 21 touchdowns on runs of 50 yards or more in his career, still 10 more than any other Clemson player in history.  He gained 7,588 all-purpose yards in his career, still third in the history of college football and still the ACC record.

As a senior in 2009, Spiller was the only college football player to score a touchdown in every game and was a unanimous first-team All-American and the ACC Player of the Year. He was sixth in the Heisman voting.

After his senior year, the native of Florida was selected in the first round of the NFL draft by the Buffalo Bills.  He was named to the Pro Bowl in 2012 when he led the league in yards per rush.

Spiller was named the running backs coach of the Clemson football program in 2021.
