Hatcher one of the greatest Tigers kickers ever

By his own admission, Danny Ford was never a kicking guru. But he knew others who were. In the summer of 1979, the then-Clemson assistant coach was sent over to watch the Tigers’ prospects camp, in particular a high school junior from Cheraw who was punting on the soccer field behind Fike Field House. With Ford was former Clemson great Fred Cone, who had punted in the NFL in the 1950s.
