Clemson honored former 'Voice of the Tigers' Jim Phillips during an on-field ceremony at the end of the first quarter on Saturday.
The radio booth at Memorial Stadium, Phillips' Clemson home for 35 years, was named in his honor. Phillips died suddenly in 2003, on a Monday following his broadcast of the Clemson-Furman football game.
Phillips' career spanned the Clemson careers of eight head football coaches and six head basketball coaches. He broadcast 401 Clemson football games and more than 1,000 men's basketball games, and also provided play-by-play for baseball and women's basketball.
A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Phillips was inducted into the Clemson Athletic Hall of Fame in 1992, and was a five-time recipient of the South Carolina Broadcaster of the Year award. He was inducted into the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame last May.
