WATCH: Watson's special message to App St LB

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson has a great childhood friend named Devan Stringer on the App State football team. Watson and Stringer grew up together since their pee-wee football days and Watson said they are like brothers.

Watson wanted to give his warmest condolences to Stringer because he lost his 11-day old daughter this morning.

Official App State Bio for Devan Stringer: Battled through early-season injury and a switch from inside to outside linebacker to become a starter and pivotal part of an Appalachian State defense that was one of the primary catalysts for the Mountaineers’ six-game winning streak to close the season ... move to outside linebacker allows Appalachian State to utilize the undersized youngster’s explosiveness and athleticism as a pass rusher, run stopper and in coverage.
