talked to the media on Monday afternoon on various topics including Dabo Swinney's celebratory dance moves in the locker room after wins.

"We coached him up a little bit. We still got to fix some things," Watson said about Swinney's dance moves.

"It was after the App State game, me, G-Hop, and Trevion were in there dancing. The dance he was doing was called "Hit dem folks" Right after we finished he asked 'what is that dance?' So we told him and explained it. He tried it this week."

Watson rated his head coach with a five out of 10 with regards to dancing.

"1 to 10...I give him about a 5. He will get better. You will see more of it later on throughout the year."

Watson was asked if the players enjoy when the coaches have fun and outwardly celebrate.

"The players love it," Watson said. "We know after we get the W we are going to come in the locker room and celebrate. That's what Coach Swinney preaches all the time. It's hard to get a win at this level. Regardless of who the opponent is if you get a win we are going to celebrate regardless. Then the next day we are going to start over. So he does a great job of coming into the locker room, pumping the team up and getting everyone excited and having a smile on their face and just having a good time. That's what it is all about. We put in so much work and time and effort, and playing on Saturday to get the win, why not celebrate."

Here is the video footage of Swinney dancing following Clemson's 20-17 win over Louisville on Thursday night.
