Later this summer, former Clemson All-American Brian Dawkins will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, the first former Tiger to ever receive the game’s greatest honor.
But before he became a star for the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL, Dawkins was an All-American and a three-time All-ACC safety at Clemson.
Dawkins was an enforcer as a tackler and a ball-hawk in the Clemson secondary. Weapon X, as he became known as in the NFL, finished his Clemson career with 15 career takeaways, including 11 interceptions and 251 tackles.
