Spiller To Have No. 28 Jersey Retired
Fri, 13 Aug 2010 16:32:39 GMT — CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Former Clemson star C.J. Spiller's not done with Death Valley yet. Athletic spokesman Tim Bourret said the school will retire Spiller's No. 28 at a ceremony when the Tigers play Maryland at home on Oct. 16. Spiller was the Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year last fall and was taken No. 9 overall in the NFL draft by Buffalo. The Bills have a bye week Oct. 17, making Spiller available for the honor. Spiller, of Lake Butler, Fla., capped a stellar career last season by finishing as the ACC's all-time leader in all-purpose yardage (7,558 yards) and set an NCAA mark with eighth kickoff return touchdown. He was the only player to score a touchdown in all his games last season and finished sixth in voting for the Heisman Trophy.
