Eastern Shore native on ESPN2

Last night I watched the Clemson Tigers squeak past the Fight Illini, 76-74,  on ESPN2 in the ACC-Big Ten Challenge. I was impressed to find out that the Clemson Tigers are 8-0 so far this season. Upon further examination of their schedule, they have not really played a formidable team yet, but they still have an impressive 8-0 record. It was also nice to see Eastern Shore native and Clemson coach, Oliver Purnell get some love on national television. Purnell is a 1971 graduate of Stephen Decatur High School in Berlin, MD. He led the Decatur team to a 1970 state championship before having a successful collegiate career at Old Dominion University. He recently had his high school jersey number retired September 19th in a ceremony held during halftime of the Decatur football game.
