the national title game in January.

Navy football tweeted a video Wednesday night that Clemson football recorded to help encourage the youngest son of Navy offensive coordinator Ivin Jasper.

Jasper has taken time away from the field while his 14-year-old son Jarren has received treatment for a rare heart condition, per a Capital Gazette report.

Jasper found out this week that his son Jarren, who is now aided by a machine for cardiac and respiratory support, will likely undergo a heart transplant.

Clemson coach Dabo Swinney, receivers Hunter Renfrow and Deon Cain, running back C.J. Fuller, quarterbacks Kelly Bryant and Zerrick Cooper and defensive tackles Christian Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence appear in the video to help inspire the Jaspers.

"I just want to lift you up and encourage you," Swinney said in the message to Jarren. "Some day you're going to get through this and get to the other side of this storm you're in your life. Don't focus on some day. Focus on today. You just put one day at a time together ... then all of a sudden, you're going to be through this and be better than ever. Keep the faith."

Swinney calls on Jarren to use the situation to "inspire others." Watch more of the message below:
