Deshaun Watson surprises Dabo Swinney with Good Works team trophy
|Friday, November 8, 2019, 3:18 PM-|
Former Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson made a surprise stop in Clemson this week to honor his former coach.
Dabo Swinney was named the honorary coach for the AFCA Good Works team in September and Watson was on hand to personally deliver the trophy in a surprise before Swinney's Tigers this week.
Swinney is the sixth member of the Clemson program all-time to earn an AFCA Good Works Team distinction, joining Robert Carswell (1999), Nick Eason (2000), Xavier Dye (2009), Deshaun Watson (2016) and Sean Pollard (2018).
Since 2009, the Swinney family and Dabo’s All In Team Foundation have given over $5.5 million back to communities and programs in the state.
