The 1951 Orange Bowl between Clemson and the University of Miami was one for the history books. As the game was winding down, it looked like all hope was lost for Clemson, but a couple of clipping calls put Miami up against their own goal line. Soon after Miami snapped the ball, a defensive guard for Clemson, Sterling Smith, tackled Miami's quarterback, Frank Smith, for what ended up being a game-winning safety.
A friend of mine is related to Sterling Smith and asked to put together a short video commemorating his incredible play in the Orange Bowl. During an event at Clemson in 2012, I simply spoke to a few people in attendance and came up with the video you see here. It took a while to get done, seeing as how it was a personal project. I was super busy in 2013! I finished it up around Christmas so Sterling's family could enjoy it together.
His family wanted me to put it online for everyone to enjoy. So check it out below and do just that.
