  • Frederick "Murray" Jarman '79 - Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, & Track Inducted 2008

    Frederick "Murray" Jarman earned a full four year athletic scholarship in basketball to Clemson University.

    Jarman's 55 percent field goal percentage figure is seventh best in Clemson history.
    Murray Jarman is one of Clemson's most popular players of the 1980s and a second-team All-ACC Tournament selection in 1984, he will be Clemson's Legend representative at the 2007 ACC Tournament in Tampa, FL. Jarman , who attended Clemson between 1980-84, still holds the seventh-best field goal percentage in Tiger record books at 55 percent.

    Jarman burst on the scene in February of 1983 when he had consecutive 18-point games against Virginia's Ralph Sampson and North Carolina's Sam Perkins, two future top-10 draft choices. He reached national acclaim for his jumping ability - as a 6-6 center he had a 42-inch vertical jump, but still went head to head with All-Americans Sampson, Perkins and Brad Daugherty during his era.

    Jarman was named to the All-ACC Tournament second team as a senior in 1984 when he scored 28 points on a 14 for 20 shooting performance in a head-to-head match up with All-American Perkins in the Tigers' contest with number-one ranked North Carolina. No Clemson player has reached that point total in an ACC Tournament game since.

    As a senior, Jarman averaged 15.0 points a game and shot 57 percent from the field and 74 percent from the foul line. He is the only center in Clemson history to shoot at least 55 percent from the field and 74 percent from the line and average 15 points per game in a single season.

    When he graduated in 1984, Jarman ranked third in Clemson history in field goal percentage, at the time trailing only Tree Rollins and Horace Grant. His 55 percent figure is still seventh best in school history.

    Jarman is remembered as one of the most improved players in Clemson history over his career. In his first two years combined, he scored just 17 points, but went on to score 621 over his last two seasons. He was named the team's most improved player in 1982-83 and earned Most Valuable Player honors for the 1983-84 season.

    Jarman is known as one of Clemson's finest all-around athletes, as he was chosen in the NFL draft by the Denver Broncos, and the NBA draft by the Phoenix Suns. He is the only Clemson athlete in the last 29 years to be selected in both drafts and still one of just five Clemson athletes in history to be drafted in both sports. Jarman never played football at Clemson, but still was drafted by the Broncos based on his pure athletic talent.

    Jarman began his college career as a scholarship player at Fordham, but transferred to Clemson as a walk-on. He was invited to try out for the Clemson team based on his legendary performances in pickup games at Fike Fieldhouse.

    Jarman's father, Claude Jarman, Jr., won an academy award for his performance in the movie "The Yearling" in 1946. Jarman earned his degree in sociology from Clemson in December of 1984.

  • Donald "The Dragon" Wilson '72 - Basketball, Football, and Track Inducted 2008

    Don (born September 10, 1954) is an American champion kick boxer and actor. He is most famous for his acting roles in action-adventure films, including nine titles in Roger Corman's Bloodfist series. His first film was Corman's Killer Instinct.

    He was perhaps the best known and most successful kickboxer of his era. He was one of the very few American kickboxers of the time (the 1980s) to travel to Thailand and compete in Muay Thai under local rules. These rules differed from the kickboxing rules prevalent in the West at the time, in that American kickboxing generally allowed only kickboxing above the waist, together with boxing techniques. Muay Thai, on the other hand, allowed then as now leg kicks, elbows and knees (delivered usually during a clinch).

    Often Western kickboxing of the era was undertaken with leg guards, forbidden in Thailand where the fighters would have had a lifetime of conditioning their shins. As a result, most Westerners facing Thais were defeated by unfamiliarity with Thai leg-checking techniques and by the superior conditioning of the Thais. Seen in that context, Wilson's record of two defeats in Thailand on points is more credible, as is his decision to fight in Thailand in the first place.

    Wilson won a total of 11 World Titles with several Sanctioning bodies that included the IKF, WKA, KICK, ISKA, STAR and the PKO. He won his IKF (www.IKFKickboxing.com) FCR Cruiserweight World Title on May 15, 1999 in Lowell, Massachusetts, USA, when he defeated Dick Kimber. (Lynn, Massachusetts, USA PRO: 23-3/21, AM: 25-0/25 5'9" 197 ) At the end of the 3rd round Wilson came alive and exploded with a flurry that eventually knocked Kimber to the floor motionless. Referee Dan Stell counted Kimber out on the floor, a count that went into the round break. Kimber never stood during the count.

    Having never been challenged for his title, Wilson Voluntarily Retired it to move down to the Light Heavyweight Division where he eventually retired from fighting a few years later.

    Wilson was also a fight commentator and interviewer in many of the early UFC events, beginning with UFC 7 in Buffalo. He stated several times that he would be willing to fight in the UFC himself if enough fans requested it, but it never happened. He went on to be a commentator for KOTC.

    According to Inside Kung-Fu Presents Kickboxing Magazine (August 1992), Don Wilson's kickboxing record was listed as 69 wins, 5 losses, 2 draws, 46 knockout wins, and 6 kick-knockouts, and 3 no-contests. On page 64, Wilson's first match with Bill Knoblok in Orlando, Florida in December 1974 is listed as a 3 round no-contest. However, on page 52 in the same issue, Wilson said about his fight with Knoblok, "But Bill won the third round by a larger margin than I had won the first. So he won the bout." Today the official result of this fight was listed as a no-contest on Wilson's official fight record because when he decided to fight for PKA, Joe Corley felt the rule of the bout was quite different from those of PKA, Corley told Wilson to omit it. Wilson's kickboxing career spanned 4-decades; his first fight with Bill Knoblok in 1974 and his last fight, a 10th round knockout victory over Eddie Butcher on July 19, 2002 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Wilson's kickboxing record is listed as 72-5-2 (48 knockouts) with 3 no-contests.

    Janice began her athletic career here at Saint Andrew’s School in 1982 when she received the award for Best Girl Athlete in the Middle School, and in 1983 when she was earned the Outstanding Girl Sportsmanship Award. Her career in the Upper School was even more impressive. During her junior year (1983-1984) Janice was recognized for her outstanding contributions as a girl athlete, again in her senior year (1984-1985) for her outstanding athletic achievements. Janice was the Varsity Girls’ Basketball and Varsity Softball MVP during her junior year, and she was the Varsity Volleyball MVP, Varsity Girls’ Basketball MVP and the Varsity Softball MVP during her senior year.
     
    After graduation, she lettered all four years in both varsity volleyball and softball at Hamilton College and was the captain of both teams during her senior year.
    In 1989, her senior year, Janice was awarded the MVP for softball. That same year she was given the Paul S. Langa Prize Scholarship, which is awarded to the top female athlete at Hamilton College. In addition to her athletic awards, Janice also received the Robert A. Bankert Junior Prize Scholarship in 1987. This prize is awarded to the athlete with the greatest academic improvement at Hamilton College.
     
    After graduation from Hamilton, Janice received her MSc. in Economics History from the London School of Economics in 1991. While pursuing her studies at the University of Florida, she received the Walter Lanzilotti Dissertation Research Award for promising dissertation research in 2000 and 2001. In 2001 the University of Florida awarded Janice her Ph.D. in Economics and that same year Janice also received the Edward Zabel Award for superior progress, specifically, progress toward publication after being admitted to candidacy.
     
    Since 1992, Janice has run in 11 marathons, at least one per year. In 1996 Janice won in her age group in the Grandfather Mountain Marathon in Linville, NC. Her win in that race placed her 4th overall. The following year she placed third in her age group, placing her 7th overall in the same race.

    Janice told me, ”My greatest joy has been finding the most wonderful husband in the world.  Mark and I met in 1992, married in 1995. He’s been with me through every race and actually rides his bike next to me on all my long runs and carries water, a towel, and ice to help me. Two hours of slow biking in loops around the neighborhood – you know he must be a saint. He also was patient enough to support my leaving home to move to Gainesville for my doctorate.  Not many men would put up with that.  He really is the best.  I wouldn’t be half as successful at anything without him.”
     
    Janice and Mark are the proud parents of daughter, Jenna.

  • J. Marshall Duane '74 - Football, Sailing, & Swimming Inducted 2002

    While he was a student here at Saint Andrew’s School, Marshall distinguished himself on the Swim Team under Head Coach Terry Carlisle and on the football field under Head Coach Jim Davis and coach Bob Todd. During that time Marshall also gained recognition by following in his mother’s footsteps, or I should say wake, by winning many awards for his skillful seamanship sailing Flying Dutchman, a one-design sailing dinghy.
     
    He was five-time State Champion in both Laser and Star Class one-design boats. Five-time National Champion in both Flying Dutchmen and Etchells Class one-design boats and four-time North American Champion in Flying Dutchman and Etchells class. Marshall sailed in college at Tulane. In 1976 he placed second in the U.S. Olympic Trials winning him the Alternate position. Marshall won the 1980 U. S. Olympic Trails placing him on the 1980 U.S. Olympic Sailing Team, again sailing Flying Dutchman. He moved on to larger ocean going racers. He is currently sailing on an Etchells Class boat.
     
    In addition to his sailing pursuits, Marshall has kept up his tennis game and in recent years has become an avid golfer. Marshall’s quite strength and his honorable demeanor have won him the respect of not only his classmates but also the students in the classes preceding and following his class of 1974.

    Last but not least, Marshall and his wife Susan have provided Saint Andrew’s School with a second generation of Duanes to bless our campus, Elizabeth '02 and Marshall '03.

  • David Posey '73 - Football Inducted 2002

    The first memory I have of David was as a 9th or 10th grader running with the pack of other faculty brats with their skim boards in the rain on the playing fields close to the road over there running and throwing his board down in the deep puddles and jumping on the board for a short ride and a splash. David and his brothers, John and Michael, made up the pack of older faculty children that ran roughshod over the campus and mowing down anything that go in their way.  (The faculty children today are tame by comparison.) They were a force to be reckoned with and they owned the campus. They were tough, cool and fun to watch.  They were also movie stars; they were walk-ons in the movie, Paper Lion, which was filmed almost in its entirety right here on our beautiful campus.
     
    Lets move ahead a year or two. David is now on the football field here, before it was named after Coach and Athletic Director Don Jones. David is practicing his placekicking, soccer-style - something new and radical in the early ‘70’s.  There were very few college level place-kickers doing it that way then, let alone pro football players, and you can forget high school football players.  David’s kicking skills landed him a place on the University of Florida’s football team. He was a walk-on there as well and his name is still in their record books, according to the Gators’ 2002 Media Guide. His accomplishments include:
    • First Team Selections All SEC: 1975
    • SEC Academic Honor Roll: 1976
    • Place-kicker from 1973-1976 – All SEC in 1976 Leading career scorer in School history with 209 (that record has since been broken)
    • Played in the NFL for the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons. In 1999 David was chosen to UF’s Team of the Century (second team choice).
    • David is among eleven Gator walk-ons who have gone on to play pro football. One of seven Gator Walk-ons who has gone on to earn first-team All SEC honors.

  • Barry K. "Smitty" Smith - Athletic Trainer & Equipment Manager Inducted 2002

    Smitty was one of those people who seemed to always be here.  He started with the construction crew when Saint Andrew’s School was being built, they moved on to the maintenance staff, and later became a permanent fixture in the Athletic Department.  If you listen carefully and things are quiet in the athletic buildings, the equipment room, the laundry room, the locker rooms, or somewhere on one of the playing fields you will hear his nasal voice calling out to some kid to stop fooling around and bring in his or her uniform shirt. Or you might hear the sharp snap of his wet towel that he would go after some offender – and it didn’t need to be a student either, coaches who got lippy got it too.

    He also had deadly aim with his bandage scissors. Of course there was the ever-present cigarette hanging from the corner of his mouth as he was working or talking.  He seldom removed it. When Smitty did remove the cigarette from his mouth it, was to wrap a young athlete’s foot, ankle, knee, or some other injured appendage. At that point the cigarette was placed between the athlete’s toes as Smitty and his tape worked their magic.
    Smitty will always be remember by those who have gazed up on his photograph which was taken the day he killed an 8 foot rattle snake that mistakenly managed to find itself in Smitty’s territory. There he is standing almost 6’2’’ with his right hand reaching straight up over his head holding the rattler behind the head with its tail draped on the ground reaching about a foot or two beyond Smitty’s left foot.
    Yes, Smitty was special because he became a legend long before his life ended, a cherished legend – the stuff that makes the history of our beloved Saint Andrew’s School that much richer. Those of us who had the good fortune to have known him, worked with him, or to have been helped by him remember him with good humor, love and warmth. He is in the ground upon which we stand and upon which our children play, and we know that his spirit will always be part of these athletic fields.
    To his family we say “thank you” for giving us Smitty for so many years and for the wonderful memories we cherish of his devotion to the Saint Andrew’s School community.
     
    Smitty will always be here. He is in the ground upon which we stand and upon which our children play.
