Tigers Hold First Two-A-Day Practice on Monday

CLEMSON, S.C. — The Tiger football team held a physical first of two practices Monday morning. It was the first of Clemson’s four two-a-days scheduled in August camp, with two more this week and the final two-a-day set for August 17. Clemson worked for just over two hours in the morning, and will return in the evening for a walk-through practice.

The Tigers were again without head coach Dabo Swinney, who is in Alabama following the passing of his father, Ervil, on Saturday. He is scheduled to return to Clemson late Tuesday.

The physical tone was set early in the indoor practice facility with two periods of the PAW drill. The Tigers also went through 7-on-7, full team and red zone situations Monday morning.
