Swinney on celebrating after a Clemson win

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney had his weekly press conference on Tuesday and answered a question on his team celebrating after each win.

"Everybody has to do things their way," Swinney said. "For me personally, guys get bored. It needs to be fun. This is college football. Part of what we want these guys to take away from here is that they had a great experience and had some fun. It’s a lot of hard work and stress for these guys. “The average person really has no clue the type of stress and pressure that these guys deal with on a daily basis. They’re kids. It comes with the territory and it’s not a complaint, it’s just the way it is. I love to see them be able to have some fun and to celebrate with their teammates when they achieve the goal. I would hate to be at a place where you win a game and everybody just says “attaboy” and you don’t really celebrate the moment."

Swinney reflected on his past football games playing at Alabama and wants his players to really cherish the memories they make at Clemson.

“We won the national championship my senior year and I still remember everything about it," Swinney said. "But it fades. What you remember the most is the journey to get there. Let’s not worry about the destination but we need to just enjoy each day. We only have 30 something days left in the season and then there’s postseason. Every day is a gift so just enjoy today and win today. When we achieve our objective on Saturday, then we can have some fun with it."
