Don Clune was selected to the All-Ivy League Silver Anniversary team in 1980, after a record-setting three-year varsity career in 1971-72-73 as a wide receiver.


Playing on teams which rewrote the Pennsylvania record book, Clune caught 121 passes for 2,419 yards (average of 20.0 yards per reception), and 21 touchdowns.  His greatest game was against Harvard in 1971 when he caught 8 passes for 284 yards and 3 touchdowns, and his best seasons were 53 receptions (1973), 891 yards (1971), and 23.1 yards per reception (1972).  Four of his touchdown receptions covered more than 70 yards.


Clune was also a hurdler and sprinter on the track team, and ran on the Penn Relays shuttle hurdles relay championship teams of 1972-73-74.  As a senior, Clune was awarded the Class of 1915 Award as that member of the senior class who, “most closely approaches the ideal University of Pennsylvania student-athlete.”
