Special Honorees: Many of Clemson’s greatest athletes in history will be attending Saturday’s game with Missouri.

Dale Davis and Barbara Kennedy will be inducted into the Clemson Ring of Honor for basketball prior to the game. The Ring of Honor is the highest honor attainable by a Clemson athlete and they must be in the Clemson Hall of Fame first.

Both will be available on the field after the ceremony on the field, which will take place around 3:20 PM. Davis just finished his 9th year with the Indiana Pacers and now plays for the Portland Trailblazers, while Kennedy (now Kennedy-Dixon) is assistant athletic director for basketball operations with the Clemson women’s basketball.

At halftime, Clemson will induct 10 new members into its Hall of Fame. Those inductees are: Elden Campbell (men’s basketball), Rodney Williams (football), Michael Dean Perry (football), Ute Jamrozy (women’s track), Sam Henson (wrestling), Dr. I.M. Ibrahim (men’s soccer coach), Jessica Barr (women’s basketball), Chris Patton (Golf), James Trapp (football and track), and Dr. Jud Hair (team physician).

Kirkland to Make Special Presentation Former Clemson All-America linebacker Levon Kirkland will make a significant contribution to The Call Me Mister Program in between the first and second periods of Saturday’s Game. Kirkland is the captain of the Pittsburgh Steelers and a two-time Pro Bowl selection. He will present the check to former Clemson All-America Jeff Davis, who is the director of the project at Clemson University. The presentation will be made at Howard’s Rock in the East Endzone. Photographers should make their way to the Rock near the end of the first period to film the presentation.

Men’s Basketball Reunion The Clemson men’s basketball program will have a reunion of over 60 former Tiger players. The list of former players expected to attend (Dale Davis, Elden Campbell, Greg Buckner, Harold Jamison, Larry Nance, Tree Rollins, Sharone Wright, Chris Whitney, Devin Gray, and Randy Mahaffey) include 11 former Tigers who are either current or former NBA players. Media wishing to interview these players should go outside Coach Larry Shyatt’s office at the Jervey Athletic Center at 12:30. They will be having a picnic at that site for about two hours or more.

Other Notes: Gary Childress, who started nine games in 1998, will start in place of Jason Holloman. If T.J. Watkins can’t start, then Brady Washburn will get the nod at tackle. He started at Wake Forest last year, his only previous start.
