Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney will team up with former punter and current assistant football coach Bill Spiers in the 13th annual Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament coming up April 28-30 at Reynolds Lake Oconee resort outside Atlanta.
The Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge main event features pairings that include a university head coach (either current or from the previous season) and a celebrity alumnus from the same school competing in a two-man scramble format against other university teams from around the country.
Swinney will make his 10th appearance in the event. He and Spiers will pair up and compete for a share of the $650,000 scholarship and charity purse. The team’s winnings will be split between an endowed scholarship at Clemson University and Dabo's All in Team Foundation.
Spiers went on to have a 13-year career in the Major Leagues. When his son Will joined the team as a punter, the elder Spiers joined the program in 2016 as an undergraduate assistant while he finished up the credits needed to earn his degree as part of the Tiger Trust Program which allows former players to come back to school and get their degree.
The Orangeburg native is now a senior assistant for offense and special teams. His son Will, is a Calhoun Academy graduate who has been the starting punter for the Tigers for the last two seasons.
