Walter N. "Ben" Clemons was a basketball, baseball, and football player and coach for the Florida Gators.[1][2][3]

Early years

Clemons was a high school teammate of Rainey Cawthon at Leon High School.[4]

Playing career

Clemons as football player, c. 1930


He was a 195-pound center on the 1928 football team, splitting time with starter Frank Clark.[5] The 1928 Gators were remembered by many sports commentators as the best Florida football team until at least the 1960s. An all-time Florida team selected by George Trevor in 1935 puts Clemons at second-team center, behind Welcome Shearer.[6]


Clemons tied as the team's leading scorer in the basketball season of 1929–30 with 136 points.[7] In the 1931 Southern Conference tournament, Clemons was the high scorer in a victory over Georgia Tech.[8] Dale Waters and Monk Dorsett also played both football and basketball with Clemons.[9]


Clemons pitched on the baseball team. He was captain of the baseball team in his senior season.[10]

Coaching career

Clemons coached at his alma mater from 1933 to 1936. He was the head coach of both the basketball and baseball teams, and an assistant for the varsity football team. Coach Clemons' basketball team once beat Adolph Rupp's Kentucky Wildcats in the SEC tournament, bringing Clemons to tears.[11]
