Last week against Middle Tennessee, Clemson sophomore linebacker Brandon Maye switched his uniform number from 20 to 17 in honor of teammate Stanley Hunter, who was forced to give up football in August when his repeated battles with epilepsy were just too much to overcome to play at the FBS level. A different Clemson player will wear his number 17 throughout this season in his honor. This week that honor falls to sophomore quarterback Willy Korn. Hunter remains involved with the team as a student assistant coach.
