Postgame Clemson Player Quotes

DeShawn Williams, DT

On Louisville win:

“It was an old school slug match and we knew that going into the week. I told the Louisville players on the field it was going to be an old-school game. Defense played lights out tonight. We gave up one touchdown, but we played lights out.”

On final drive:

“We’re built for stuff like that. We’ve been through so much, we were ready for that. We led the team as a defense the whole game, so why not finish it? When he threw the ball, I knew he threw it to me, so I just put my hands up and batted it down. It was a great team effort.”

Cole Stoudt, QB

On playing for the injured Deshaun Watson:

“It’s something that I have done before. It’s something I’ve prepared for and I was ready throughout meetings and practice and I was ready for my situation.”

On injured shoulder:

“It hurt pretty bad, but I didn’t want to come out, so I just fought through it. I didn’t want to miss an opportunity, so I just stayed out there with the guys and it wasn’t pretty, but we found a way to win.”

Ben Boulware, LB

On getting the start at linebacker:

“I was prepared, but I didn’t know for sure. I know Tony (Steward) was on the edge and I think he could have played if he had to, but the coaching staff didn’t want to risk it. I really knew on Thursday, and thank God my opportunity is here.”

On four tackles for loss:

“I’m just happy because I’ve worked my butt of for years, and to finally get the opportunity to show people I can play, I’m just happy it’s finally paying off.”
