Offensive line coaches, much like offensive lineman, don't go into their line of work expecting a lot of awards or honors.
But Clemson's Robbie Caldwell is being recognized by his alma mater.
The native of Pageland will be one of two inductees into the Furman Athletic Hall of Fame.
A three-year Paladin letterman as a center from 1973-75, Robbie is one of only two Furman offensive linemen to be named team MVP in the last 46 seasons.
He was Furman's offensive line coach in 1978 under first year Furman head coach Dick Sheridan and was a part of six Southern Conference championships. He followed Sheridan to N.C. State where he worked for 14 seasons. He then went to North Carolina and Vanderbilt. In 2010, he was the Commodores interim head coach when Bobby Johnson stepped down in the summer.
He has spent the last eight seasons at Clemson. He joined the Tigers in 2011 and his first year, the Tigers won the ACC Championship and he's had a front row seat to that program's rise to one of the elite programs in the country.
The induction ceremony is Friday night September 20. The Tigers have a home game with Charlotte, so you would think Robbie will be able to personally accept his award from the Furman athletics department.
