#ScholarshipAlert: Dabo surprises walk on with scholarship in front of player's father at practice

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.
