Up for freshman orientation...

[22]
Posted: Jul 18, 2018 5:12 PM
 

Daughter had orientation M/T, so we drove up Sunday to spend some time on campus. On the way back to the hotel, I told wife and daughter that I wanted to check out the new football complex. Drove up, gates were up, so I drove all the way in and parked. “I don’t think we are supposed to be here.” I said, it’s fine, the gates were up. I got out of the car by myself, they chose to wait. As I walked up to the front, I noticed a well built gentleman entering the complex. I continued to look through the glass at the natty trophy and then moved over to the hill replica. At this time, I noticed the gentleman walking back out and towards me. He introduced himself, Miguel Chavis, and asked if I’d like a tour. I’m pretty sure I floated back the the car yelling for them to get out and come on, because I don’t remember my feet touching the ground.
For the next 45 minutes he took us everywhere, nap room, cafeteria, locker room, weight training facility, game room, outdoor rec area, uniform/shoe/ring room, and yes, we got to go down the slide.
Clemson Family. That thought kept ringing through my head. This is why I love and will always love Clemson and as long as my children keep getting accepted, they will attend school there. Number two starting in August and God willing, 3 and 4 the following years. Miguel could have kept going to his office, but he saw a Clemson family, and gave us something we will always remember. Go Tigers!!!!!!

Are you kidding me? Is this real? Are you like some kind of major donor?

No. Right place at the right time and looking back, I feel like this happened for a reason. Coach Chavis and his wife are very involved in youth ministry and my daughter was a leader in her youth group, so this is a great match. It was also my wife’s birthday. It was without a doubt the perfect storm. I was so emotional as we left. Still can’t belieb it!!!!

That was Dabo’s golf cart...
Oh, saw Alex Spence doing some computer work, too. Keep in mind it was about 930 when we wrapped up.

I followed the press into the outdoor field during practice for bowl game. He came over and politely told me i couldn't be there. I got a crick in my neck looking up, said yes sir, sorry...I'm over 60. He smiled and we chatted until i was outside the gate. Nice "kid".

Same thing happened to me. I was with my 2 girls 11 and 13 April 2017. I was picking up some stuff I had donnell woolford and Terry Allen sign (coaches at the time). Just happened to be right place right time. Got full tour with the slide. Kids in heaven. What a great guy he is. Also happened that J Ross was there on an unofficial visit with Jeff Scott. What a day!

Georgia and Athens just did not offer what I felt would be best for me in the end. Sure, I had a fun time on my visit, but when it comes to playing football I just do not feel comfortable there. And when you consider everything that is going on up there, it makes you wonder just how long Kirby Smart is going to be around. He certainly is no Dabo Swinney or Nick Saban, and let's just leave it there. -Jadon Haselwood
