Clemson Safety Decides to Walk Away from Football

By: Zachary Wagner

Redshirt sophomore Ben Batson announced on his personal Instagram page on Thursday night stating; “the game ends for us all eventually. It’s been an amazing journey with lots of great memories! It’s tough to let it go but God never says oops. Excited for the next chapter.”

Batson’s father, Joey Batson, is the head director of the Clemson Football strength and conditioning program for the Tigers and Ben is the second son of Joeys’ to play for Clemson.

Batson redshirted the 2018 season and appeared in two games for the Tigers. In 2019, Batson saw himself under center for 18 plays taking snaps with the Tigers backups during blowout wins. Batson was also a large contributor on special teams and no one can forget the game of the zip-up number 92 jersey when Batson was playing both quarterback and safety for the Tigers.

The Central, South Carolina native cited concussions as a primary reason why he was hanging up the cleats for good. 

Clemson Sports News wishes Mr. Batson positive endeavors and bountiful health. I’m sure this is not the last of Ben Batson that we will be seeing around the Clemson Football Facility.
