The check presentation was made in between the first and second periods of Clemson's game with Central Michigan at Clemson Memorial Stadium. Whitehurst is the fourth former Clemson football player to make a $50,000 gift to the West End Zone initiative in the last two years, joining Michael Dean Perry, Justin Miller and Chester McGlockton.
Whitehurst is in his second year with the Chargers as a reserve quarterback. The Chargers are open this weekend. He was a third-round draft pick out of Clemson in April of 2006.
During his Clemson career, Whitehurst established 46 career, season and single game records. Among the marks he still holds are the career marks for total offense (9,763), passing yards (7182) and touchdown passes (49). He still holds the single season record for passing yards (3561) and completions (288) and has the single game record for passing yards with 420 against Duke in 2002.
Whitehurst, who was a four-year starter between 2002-05, led Clemson to seven wins over top 25 teams in his career, tying a Clemson record, including three wins over top 10 teams. He led Clemson to a 26-10 win over third ranked Florida State in 2003, the highest ranked team Clemson has defeated in its history.
He is most celebrated among Clemson fans for leading the Tigers to four victories over rival South Carolina. He is the only starting quarterback in the history of the series to post a 4-0 record
