|Career highlights and awards|
In 1908, a year in which he was captain, he was selected All-Southern; Vanderbilt coach Dan McGugin describes his play: "McClure was not particularly fast, but a spirited leader, an excellent general and a sure tackler." LSU won the SIAA championship, but amidst fears of many players being ineligible under SIAA rules most sportswriters did not include them for All-Southern selection. LSU rival Tulane, which was also undefeated in conference play, accused many LSU players of professionalism. Auburn is one team listed as an alternative southern champion, for LSU was its only loss.
