Proctor Expected to Start Duke Game

Nov. 5, 2005

Will Proctor is expected to start for Clemson against Duke today in place of Charlie Whitehurst, who has a sore shoulder. Whitehurst has missed time in practice off and on since the Boston College game due to the shoulder soreness, but this will be the first time he has not started at quarterback for the Tigers since October 24, 2002.

Whitehurst started each of the last 37 games at quarterback, a Clemson record by five starts. Tommy Kendrick had 32 consecutive starts at quarterback from 1969-71 and that was the previous record before Whitehurst. Ironically, Whitehurst’s steak of consecutive starts at quarterback began against Duke on November 2, 2002, three years and three days ago.

Proctor has thrown just 13 passes in his Clemson career, and has completed five for 80 yards and a touchdown. He has appeared in just 11 games in his career to this point.
