(AP) -- Henry Youssef-Ahmadabadi came :o Clemson University as a soccer player from Miami Dade Junior College. He leaves Clemson as Henry A b a d i , All-Arnerlcan soccer player and kicking specialist candidate with ihe Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League. The name change came about at the suggestion of I.M. Ibrahim, Clemson's soccer coach from Israel. Ibrahim, starting f r o m scratch, built Clemson tc No. 4 national status last sea- son in his seventh year on the' job. He says Abadi "has the hardest kick I've ever seen at this level of competition." Bui Ibrahim decided that his star player's name would be too difficult for news media to field and coutd prevent him from receiving proper recognition. So the first five letters of the name were discarded, the last five retained in order and Henry A b a d i was born. He's never played football, but the Cowboys were impressed with his kicking and drafted him. The native Iranian aas signed and will leave Ctem- son next month to report to camp. Anadi, who was graduated last week, says he has a firm jtKlerstanding with the Cowboys that should he make the team he will not play on Saturday for religious reasons. He is a Seventh Day Adventist. Because of this, Clemson did not schedule Saturday games last year and the year before. When the Tigers were beaten by UCAL 2-1 in double overtime in the n a t i o n a l quarter-finals last fall in Miami, the game was played on a Friday. Had Clemson won. it would have had to play on Saturday--without its star, the nation's top col- egiate scorer. Another recent Clemson graduate, Eddie Seigler, hopes to make good as a placekicker with the Washington Redskins. He led Clemson in scoring for three years with his accurate kicking. He failed to survive the Chicago Bear camp last summer, returned to Ctemson to complete his education and haa signed with the Redskins.
