Dabo Swinney got some extra work in with walk on punter Will Spiers earlier this week to get him a few extra simulated long snaps.
Swinney had a little surprise up his sleeve though, and after rushing Will with his whistle blowing after a snap, he flipped the ball over to reveal a note on the ball revealing that he’d won a scholarship.
Watching from the sideline was Will’s father, Bill, a former Clemson player himself, which made the moment even more special.
