Former Clemson defensive back Chris "PT" Chancellor has transitioned into a successful law enforcement career as he was named Clemson's 2016 Police Officer of the Year by the Pickens Municipal Association.

However, does he have a career in music too?

Chancellor did the #lipsynchchallenge on Monday which is a fun series of videos where police officers are challenging other agencies to sing along to popular songs.

'PT' decided on lip singing to Survivor's 'Eye of the Tiger' and the very romantic 'A Thousand Miles' by Vanessa Carlton.

TigerNet spoke with Chancellor briefly and asked why he picked those two particular songs.

"I’m a Tiger for life and Eye of the Tiger was a no brainer," he said. "And I’ve watched the movie “White Chicks” about 100 times and the scene where Terry Crews sings that song is absolutely hilarious and I knew no one would expect me to lipsync to that song."

Burrito disclaimer: On a personal note, I have known Chris for many years, and he is a hard worker that truly loves the Clemson community. If you see him around town and want to show your appreciation for his work as a police officer, buy him a Chipotle burrito. He is STILL completely addicted to that place.

Check out the funny video below:

Here are the videos and lyrics if you want to sing along:

Risin' up, back on the street

Did my time, took my chances

Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet

Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast

You trade your passion for glory

Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past

You must fight just to keep them alive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the thrill of the fight

Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat

Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry

They stack the odds 'till we take to the street

For the kill with the skill to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight

Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

Risin' up, straight to the top

Had the guts, got the glory

Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop

Just a man and his will to survive

It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight

Risin' up to the challenge of our rival

And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night

And he's watchin' us all with the eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

The eye of the tiger

Making my way downtown walking fast

Faces pass and I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead just making my way

Making a way through the crowd

And I need you

And I miss you

And now I wonder

If I could fall into the sky

Do you think time would pass me by?

'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you tonight

It's always times like these when I think of you

And I wonder if you ever think of me

'Cause everything's so wrong and I don't belong

Living in your precious memories

'Cause I'll need you

And I'll miss you

And now I wonder

If I could fall into the sky

Do you think time would pass me by?

'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you tonight

And I, I don't want to let you know

I, I drown in your memory

I, I don't want to let this go

I, I don't

Making my way downtown walking fast

Faces pass and I'm home bound

Staring blankly ahead just making my way

Making a way through the crowd

And I still need you

And I still miss you

And now I wonder

If I could fall into the sky

Do you think time would pass us by?

'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you

If I could fall into the sky

Do you think time would pass me by?

'Cause you know I'd walk a thousand miles

If I could just see you, if I could just hold you tonight
