Early years

Barnes attended Valley High School, where he practiced football and basketball. He spent a year at Gordon Military Academy, before accepting a scholarship from Clemson University with the intention of playing both sports.[1]

Head coach Frank Howard convinced him to just focus on football and eventually named him a starter at split end as a sophomore, registering 9 receptions for 216 yards and 3 touchdowns. He had a 68-yard touchdown reception in a 23-7 win over the seventh-ranked Texas Christian University in the 1959 Bluebonnet Bowl.

The next year, he posted 14 receptions for 256 yards and one touchdown. He was moved to halfback as a senior, finishing with 16 receptions for 247 yards, 8 carries for 31 yards and 3 touchdowns.

In 2002, he was inducted into the Clemson University Athletic Hall of Fame. In 2005, he was inducted in the South Carolina Athletic Hall of Fame.

Professional career

Green Bay Packers

Barnes was selected by the Green Bay Packers in the third round (41st overall) of the 1962 NFL Draft and was also selected by the New York Titans in the ninth round (69th overall) of the 1962 AFL Draft.[2] As a rookie, he was a backup wide receiver, appearing in 13 games with no receptions and was a member of the 1962 NFL Championship team.

In 1963, he was traded to the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for a fifth round draft choice (#60-Duke Carlisle).

Dallas Cowboys

In 1963, he appeared in 12 games (3 starts), registering 15 receptions for 195 yards. On June 18, 1964, he was traded to the Chicago Bears in exchange for defensive end Maury Youmans.[3]

Chicago Bears

In 1964, the Chicago Bears acquired Barnes for depth purposes and he only recorded 4 receptions for 61 yards. He was waived in August 1965.

Philadelphia Eagles

On August 23, 1965, he was signed as a free agent by the Philadelphia Eagles.[4] He was released 7 days later on August 30.[5]

Atlanta Falcons

In 1965, Barnes was the first player signed to a contract by the Atlanta Falcons in team history.[6] He was asked to play for a semi-pro football team in Huntsville, to keep in shape since the franchise was still a year away from beginning play. The next season, he scored the first touchdown in Falcons history, with a 53-yard reception from quarterback Randy Johnson during a 14-19 loss in the season opener against the Los Angeles Rams.[7] On November 25, 1966, he was released to make room for rookie Richard Koeper.[8]

Barnes was re-signed in January 1967.[9] He was released on September 4, 1968.[10] Although he had an opportunity to try-out for other teams, he opted to retire, finishing with 60 career games, 41 receptions for 583 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Personal life

After football, he worked in the fiber division of Chevron Corporation. He also operated a textile business and was an investment adviser.

In 1986, although he had no previous legal experience, he was asked by then-Clemson City Council member Gaston Gage to become Clemson's first full-time municipal judge. He spent 30 years in that job until retiring in 2015.[11]

1962 Green Bay Packers season

The 1962 Green Bay Packers season was their 44th season overall and their 42nd season in the National Football League. The club posted a 13–1 record under coach Vince Lombardi, earning them a first-place finish in the Western Conference. The Packers ended the season by defeating the New York Giants 16–7 in the NFL Championship Game, the Packers second consecutive defeat of the Giants in the championship game. This marked the Packers' eighth NFL World Championship.

In 2007, ranked the 1962 Packers as the fifth-greatest defense in NFL history, noting, "The great 1962 Packers had a rock-solid defense front to back, with five Hall of Famers: defensive linemen Willie Davis and Henry Jordan, linebacker Ray Nitschke, cornerback Herb Adderley, and safety Willie Wood. (They also had 1962 All-Pro linebackers Dan Currie and Bill Forester.) Green Bay gave up just 10.8 points per game, shutting out opponents three times. The Packers held opposing QBs to a 43.5 rating, due, in part, to Wood's league-leading nine interceptions. The Packers' defense allowed the Giants 291 yards in the NFL championship game, but held the Giants offense scoreless as the Packers won, 16–7 (New York scored on a blocked punt)."

The Packers' +267 point differential (points scored vs. points against) in 1962 is the best total of any NFL team in the 1960s. Cold Hard Football Facts says that the 1962 Packers "may have been the best rushing team in the history of football. And that team etched in historic stone the image of Lombardi's three-yards-and-a-cloud-of-dust Packers that is still so powerful today."

The results was a Labour Victory with 3 seats gained 2 from the Conservatives and 1 from Independent. UKIP The Green Party and National Front along with several Independents also fielded candidates. This was on the same day as other local elections. It was worth noting that the Conservative party were only requiring a net gain of three seats to take control of the council. The resulting Labour victory was a surprise. The most surprising was Labour's taking of the seemingly safe Conservative ward of Eden.

Hurricane Guillermo (1997)

Hurricane Guillermo was the ninth-most intense Pacific hurricane on record, attaining peak winds of 160 mph (260 km/h) and a barometric pressure of 919 hPa (27.14 inHg). Forming out of a tropical wave on July 30, 1997, roughly 345 mi (555 km) south of Salina Cruz, Mexico, Guillermo tracked in a steady west-northwestward direction while intensifying. The system reached hurricane status by August 1 before undergoing rapid intensification the following day. At the end of this phase, the storm attained its peak intensity as a powerful Category 5 hurricane. The storm began to weaken during the afternoon of August 5 and was downgraded to a tropical storm on August 8. Once entering the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's area of responsibility, Guillermo briefly weakened to a tropical depression before re-attaining tropical storm status. On August 15, the storm reached an unusually high latitude of 41.8°N before transitioning into an extratropical cyclone. The remnants persisted for more than a week as they tracked towards the northeast and later south and east before being absorbed by a larger extratropical system off the coast of California on August 24.

Throughout Guillermo's track, the storm never threatened any major landmass, resulting in little impact on land. However, because of its extreme intensity, it produced large swells across the Pacific Ocean, affecting areas from Hawaii to coastal Mexico. Along the American Pacific coast, three people drowned amid high waves, two in Baja California and one in California. At its peak, Guillermo was the second strongest known Pacific hurricane on record; however, it has since been surpassed by seven other storms, including Linda later that year. The effects of Guillermo were not deemed severe enough to justify retirement of its name.

List of Clemson Tigers in the NFL Draft

The Clemson University Tigers football team has had 243 players drafted into the National Football League (NFL) since the league began holding drafts in 1936. Each NFL franchise seeks to add new players through the annual NFL Draft. The draft rules were last updated in 2009. The team with the worst record the previous year picks first, the next-worst team second, and so on. Teams that did not make the playoffs are ordered by their regular-season record, with any remaining ties broken by strength of schedule. Playoff participants are sequenced after non-playoff teams, based on their round of elimination (wild card, division, conference, and Super Bowl).Before the merger agreements in 1966, the American Football League (AFL) operated in direct competition with the NFL and held a separate draft. This led to a massive bidding war over top prospects between the two leagues, along with the subsequent drafting of the same player in each draft. As part of the merger agreement on June 8, 1966, the two leagues held a multiple round "Common Draft". Once the AFL officially merged with the NFL in 1970, the "Common Draft" simply became the NFL Draft.Through the 2017 NFL Draft, the highest that a Tiger has ever been drafted is fourth overall, which has happened on three occasions: Banks McFadden in 1939, Gaines Adams in 2007, and Sammy Watkins in 2014. The Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Giants have drafted the most Tigers, each with seventeen Dashun watson. The only current NFL franchises that have not selected a Clemson Tiger are the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers. Twenty-seven Tigers have been drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft, with the most recent being Shaq Lawson in 2016. The single first round of the NFL Draft with the most Tigers selected was 1979, 1982, 2015, and 2017 with two players. Of the Tigers selected in the NFL Draft, seventeen have been selected to a Pro Bowl, nineteen have been a member of a Super Bowl winning team, and four have achieved both. The most Tigers selected in a single NFL Draft is nine, in 1983 and 2016.
