4 Clemson football players suspended for opener against Georgia
CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -
Four Clemson Tigers football players have been suspended for the first game of the 2014 season, Coach Dabo Swinney announced on Tuesday.
David Beasley, Shaq Anthony, Garry Peters and Corey Crawford will have to sit out the season opener against Georgia on Aug. 30 due to a "violation of team rules," the athletic department said in a release.
"A huge part of our program is teaching accountability, responsibility and that there are consequences for your actions. These are four good young men, but they broke a team rule and as a result, they will each miss a game. I am hopeful that they will learn and grow from this and have a great 2014 season on and off the field," Swinney said.
Defensive end Crawford and offensive guard Beasley were both starters for the 2013 season.
Peters and Anthony were reserves for the Tigers.
