S.C. Athletic Hall of Fame


Max Runager

Runager starred at USC in the 70s and is the punter on the Gamecocks’ all-time modern-era team. The Philadelphia Eagles selected the 6-1, 189-pounder from Orangeburg in the eighth round of the 1979 draft and Runager went on to an 11-year NFL career and picked up two Super Bowl rings and an NFC title. He amassed 26,581 yards on punts for a 40.2 career average with a career-best long boot of 64 yards. His best years came in 1983 with the Eagles with a 41.7 average, and with the San Francisco 49ers in 1984 (41.8) and 1986 (41.6), the latter two seasons helping the 49ers win Super Bowls. He was selected to the Eagles all-decade team and ranks as only one of three USC players to own two Super Bowl rings.
