College Football Player. Generally regarded one of the greatest athletes in Clemson history, he is the only athlete in Clemson history to be named an All-American in football and basketball in the same year, 1939. In football, McFadden led Clemson to a 9-1 record in 1939 and the school's first bowl bid, a 6-3 victory over Boston College in the 1940 Cotton Bowl. McFadden's feat of 22 punts of at least 50 yards during the 1939 season still stands as a school record. In 1959, McFadden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. He was a charter member of the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame and the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame. He'd had his basketball number, 23, and football number, 66, retired by Clemson. In addition, Clemson's McFadden Building, dedicated in 1995, is in his honor, he was named to Clemson's Centennial team in April, 1996, ranked as Clemson's #1 football player of all-time by a panel of Clemson historians in 1999 and is a member of the Clemson Ring of Honor. (bio by: Ron Moody)
