Video: 'We're modern day gladiators, playing football in Death Valley'

Very well done video here on the game day environment and "The Hill" entrance at Clemson, regarded as one of the top entrances in all of college football.

Dabo Swinney weighs in on the overall atmosphere and traditions on game day, and current and former players talk about what it's like to play in Death Valley. Star quarterback Tahj Boyd puts it all in perspective for recruits by saying, "I look at it as if we're almost modern day gladiators, playing football in Death Valley."

That quote, along with the way the cameras capture players getting off the bus and walking down the hill to enter the field is going to really impress recruits.

It's no wonder Brent Musberger called the entrance "the most exciting 25 seconds in college football".

This is another well done video by the people at Bluechip Media Group.
