Quotes from Attendees:
Brian Barton; Columbia, S.C. “By far the best thing we did was hanging out with the coaches Friday night, hearing so many stories from Coach Ford, Michael Dean Perry, and Perry Tuttle. If you are a Clemson fan you must do this. I actually ran with the bulls on vacation in Spain two years ago and this was ten times cooler than that.”
Floyd Elliott; Spartanburg, S.C. “I can only imagine what our players have to go through. You have such a good understanding what goes on in team and position meetings.”
