They are not sure yet if David Reader Jr. can become the next ‘Fridge’, but he is sure working hard at it, to become a top athlete at Clemson and though he might not be quite ready to change his name to Perry or Parker, he is sure changing his ‘sports hats’ several times a day, in his first year as a two-sport athlete, at Clemson….Now on Saturdays, D.J. is playing in front of 75,000 screaming Tiger fans and that is a far cry different from the 300-400 he might see at Grimsley, late in the season, when the playoffs were out of reach and the only left was to turn in your equipment at the end of that particular Friday night, since you day and season were done…..
These days he is just getting started and now we have the new routine for D.J. Reader, one of Greensboro’s finest athletes, as Orange and White the Clemson Tiger web site, at www.orangeandwhite.com, gives us the inside look into one of the biggest Clemson Tigers ever, D.J. Reader….A good read, on Reader….

CLEMSON — So you think you had a busy Wednesday?
D.J. Reader(Grimsley High School) scoffs.
Wednesday morning, Clemson’s freshman defensive tackle woke up in time for a 6:30 a.m. workout, followed by an 8 a.m. tutoring session. Classes followed from 9 a.m. to 12:05, with a 40 minute lunch break.
At 12:45 p.m., it was a trip to Doug Kingsmore Stadium for a baseball workout – yes, baseball. From there, he went directly across the street for 2 p.m. football meetings in Memorial Stadium, followed by one of the week’s toughest practices.
Just a typical Wednesday for Reader, who hopes to become Clemson’s next two-sport star.
