Jeff Lynn Bostic
Jeff Bostic, a graduate of Ben L. Smith, was a key component in the resurgence of Clemson football in the mid-seventies. During his career, Clemson played in three bowl games, the 1977 and ‘78 Gator Bowls and the 1979 Peach Bowl. The 1977 Gator Bowl appearance was the first bowl game for the Tigers in 18 years. Bostic was a three-year starter on the offensive line, two years at center and one year at offensive guard. Bostic also handled the deep snapping and was named first-team All-ACC in 1979. Bostic teamed with his brother, Joe, to anchor the offensive line in 1977 and ‘78, the greatest offensive line brother combination in Clemson history. After his time at Clemson, Bostic played 14 successful years with the Washington Redskins. A native of Greensboro, Bostic played in four Super Bowls and won three with the Redskins, the only former Clemson player with three Super Bowl rings. Bostic was also selected to the Pro Bowl in 1983. Bostic was inducted into the Clemson Hall of Fame in 1997 and was named to the Clemson Centennial Team in 1996.
