Clemson rookie running back Lyn-J Dixon took his first touch in Death Valley during Saturday's scrimmage for a 50-yard touchdown.

His teammate Travis Etienne spoke to the media following the scrimmage and spoke about several topics including his running back teammate.

"Lyn-J been doing that every day since we put the pads on. He goes out there every rep, he may not know what he might be doing, but he gonna give it 100 percent and that's what we love about him."

Etienne sees some similarities between Dixon and himself.

"Just coming here and nobody really knows who you are and just gonna out on that practice field trying to prove yourself and showing guys you belong," he said. "I feel like he definitely got that swag about him that he needs to be a running back. If he keeps that same mindset, the sky's the limit for him."
