This story was posted on facebook by this woman's son.

WHAT IS THE VALUE OF A MAN’S WORTH???? Yesterday I had the unbelievable pleasure of finding out the value of one man’s worth. To quote a commercial . . . he is “priceless.” Most of you know that, for over a year now, my mom has been battling stage 4 cancer of the liver and lungs. The weekly chemo sessions have taken their toil to the point that every day is now a struggle. Mom continues to battle courageously, but recently I felt she really needed some inspiration. To that end, I wrote the head coach of the Clemson Tigers, Dabo Swinney, a letter detailing Mom’s battle and my desire to provide her with that inspiration. For those of you who know my family, we bleed orange (no, not Tennessee orange). Clemson orange. Mom loves Dabo Swinney and everything he stands for. Now I know why. To make a long story as short as possible, yesterday, Don Munson, Director of Media Relations at Clemson University, and Dabo Swinney, visited my parent’s home in Easley, South Carolina. I want to mention that this was 2 days before National Signing Day, an extremely important day for a Division I College Football Head Coach. This meeting was not about publicity, as the only ones taking pictures were my family. This meeting was not about a head coach making a name for himself in a community . . . he’s already done that. This meeting was about a man who truly cares about his “family.” This was about a man whose only goal was to lift up a woman who was struggling and provide her with the inspiration to continue the fight. Dabo embraced my Mom, held her hand for 1 and ½ hours (even though we were told he would only have 30 minutes), and prayed over her for God to give her the strength to continue the fight. He shared intimate stories with us, and we with him. I could go on for quite a while about Dabo’s visit, but will simply say, it was a wonderful memory that my Mom and my family will cherish always. We will never be able to thank Dabo (& Don) enough for what we believe was a very timely visit with my Mom. For all of you Tiger fans out there, I want you to know . . . we have a great man leading this team. His inspiration and motivation for my Mom were “priceless.”

Yep, Dabo's special...and wish more of the recruits realized

what they would have in their college lives with him being their HC...not to say the other HC coaches aren't fine men, but we at Clemson know of & about him in particular.

Much success to your MOM in her recovery & overall well being.

GoTiGERs!

Fantastic story and I appreciate you sharing it with all of us. This isn't the first time Dabo has shown his true self and it will not be his last because he is that kind of guy. I posted last year about this time that he took hours off from the team breakfast prior to the ACC championship game to bring joy to a young boy in Charlotte who has serious health issues. To that point, it was the biggest day of Dabo's professional life and he chose to help a kid he had never met over the 'big game'. No way Dabo could have lost that game to VPI after showing that kind of love. Ain't Clemson great???

I think Dabo is one of the best things that has happened to Clemson University. My man crush is huge on the guy. Thanks for sharing.

I agree. we are lucky to have such a man as part of Clemson. It is too bad that there are those on Tigernet that see this as a weakness rather than a strength.

can something like this can fwd to the media?


Feb 7, 2013, 8:41 AM

Coach DS doesn't do this for the hype....but no doubt he deserves the recognition.

Any bets on "that other coach in the state" or Saban or Muschamp or Miles doing the same?

Don't think he would want it sent to the media.***

Disagree: great recruiter...good coach...amazing man.

Add to that a great eye for talent and great mentor and role model for young men. If I am blessed enough to have a son good enough at football to play big time D1 ball, he will be playing for coach Dabo.
