Clemson, S.C. – On Sunday, the Clemson football team participated in Fan Appreciation Day at Littlejohn Coliseum.

Fans were greeted by interactive games on the lawn of Littlejohn before heading into the coliseum to obtain autographs from their favorite Tiger players and coaches. The first 500 youngsters through the gates of Littlejohn were given a free t-shirt with the Clemson schedule on it.

Before taking part in the festivities at Littlejohn, the Tigers posed for a team photo in Clemson’s Memorial Stadium.

Head coach Tommy Bowden was probably the most popular and busiest participant on Sunday. Bowden posed for photos with his players, with coaches and with fans. The second-year head coach spent about 30 minutes with the media before heading to the coliseum for a nearly three-hour long autograph session.

Among the items Bowden signed on Sunday were: t-shirts, posters, helmets, photos, artwork and footballs. Probably the most unusual thing Bowden signed on Sunday was an orange cell phone with a Tiger Paw on it.
