He is the color man/analyst on the Duke football broadcasts and he was one of the best receivers to ever suit up for the Duke Blue Devils…..He has a Greensboro connection, with his son having lived here and his grandson Thad Chesson played receiver, for the Western Guilford Hornets….

Wes Chesson caught 74 passes, for 1,080 yards, for the Duke Blue Devils football team way back in 1970 and that is a lot of pass receptions and quite a few yards, no matter what season we are talking about, but back in 1970??? That’s when the run was king, but Duke coach Tom Harp liked to go up stairs, with his QB Leo Hart and put the ball in the air and the Devils did it with Chesson cashing in…..

He may have cashed in with some outstanding numbers, but he’S not even in the Duke Sports Hall of Fame and what’s up with that???

The News and Observer’s Caulton Tudor has him in his group of ACC All-Time Top 25 receivers at around #15 and you can read more on Wes Chesson, one of the all-time greats in ACC football history, when you CLICK HERE for Mr. Tudor coming in from the Charlotte Observer on-line…..
