Home sweet home!

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney got his #81 jersey retired at his former stomping grounds at Pelham High School (Alabama) on Friday night.

“It’s really special. Everything started at Pelham, Alabama for me, so it’s an honor to come back home and receive this recognition," Swinney told reporter Rick Karle. “I am just so thankful and grateful for the moment.”

Swinney spoke to the fans in attendance at half-time and also was included in the ceremonial coin toss before the game.
