CLEMSON FOOTBALL RECRUITING
The hype around Clemson Football recruiting that was revolving around Trevor Lawrence was not a mistake, as it nauseated some of us who do not believe in overhyping young men who cannot handle the situation yet. Lawrence proved this theory wrong and I am proud of him for that fact. Trevor has kept his composure through all adversity and even though he is loaded with offensive weaponry around him, Trevor proved to be the final piece to the Dabo Swinney masterpiece, which is the 2018-2019 Clemson Tigers.- Read 2018 Clemson Preview which features Nick Saban and Dabo Swinney.
CLEMSON QUARTERBACK TREVOR LAWRENCE
The College Football Freshmen Of The Year Award was taken by Trevor Lawrence in the College Football Playoff. He has earned the title as the best Freshmen College Football Player Of The Year, as he has played outstanding football for the Clemson Tigers and was a big reason they were able to defeat Notre Dame by a score of 30-3. Clemson will look for Trevor to lead them past the Alabama Crimson Tide, with our College Football Player Of The Year in standout Running Back Travis Etienne.

CFB CHAMPIONSHIP 2018
The CFB Playoff National Championship is set and it will once again feature Alabama vs Clemson for the right to hoist the 2018-2019 College Football National Championship Trophy. Looking back at the past few seasons, each team has proven dominance in both conference play and post season play, and both teams rightfully deserve to be here once again in the current College Football Playoff system we have today. We have documented Coach Nick Saban's climb to the top as one of the most significant figures in CFB history and even talked about how Dabo Swinney and Nick Saban have very similar coaching philosophies.
DABO SWINNEY NICK SABAN
Written 7/28/2018 by Maddy Sperling
Reading and listening to how these two head coaches define their processes, I have noticed some important parallels between their leadership philosophies. According to Swinney, the culture he has installed in the Clemson program is driven by ‘The Why’ of what he, his staff and his athletes do–not just how they do it, but why. As such, his leadership style is highly focused on intent and purpose.
Similarly, in a recent speech given a camp at Alabama, Coach Saban emphasized the importance of choice to the young athletes in attendance. Much like Swinney’s philosophy of why, Saban aims to instill conscientious action and decision-making in his student-athletes. While working for a publication that also covers college football prospects, I have found these lessons are likely the most imperative in guiding young athletes. Half of the submissions we receive from high school athlete requesting help in their recruiting process show a disturbing lack of purpose and sincerity, and it’s clear that the recruit has yet to ask themselves why they want to play college football. I have also seen this pattern of haphazardness in top rated, 4-5-star recruits. I’m not saying it’s wrong or condemnable for an 18 year-old to not have a meticulous life strategy, but it is imperative for rising college football players, FBS or otherwise, to reflect on the whys:
Why do you want to play college football?
Why did you choose to play football in the beginning, and why is it still a big part of your life?
Why do you want to play in college and not in a minor professional league?
Why did you pick the school you play for?
These questions are so important in the recruiting process and in the greater realm of college football because when a young player’s motivations are driven one-dimensionally, they are setting themselves up to make destructive choices and even subconsciously sabotage themselves on the field.
The parallels in leadership between these two powerhouse programs demonstrate why they are where they are and why there will be no shortage of competitive Clemson-Alabama match-ups in future college football playoffs as long as they continue to re-install these core values in these young men.
