WATCH: Wilkins breaks down 'Fridge package' TD


by -

Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins became the first Tigers defensive lineman to score a rushing touchdown on Saturday in a 59-10 romp over Florida State.

He had a lot of thank yous to hand out for the accomplishment.

"I'm just glad I got the opportunity and the chance," Wilkins said. "It was a lot of fun. We worked on that all week. It was just a fun experience. I'm glad I got to do that...The O-line did a great job and I want to thank them. Dex(ter) Lawrence cleared the way. I definitely want to thank Trevor (Lawrence) - that was a nice handoff too. I was a little nervous about that.

"I definitely want to thank the other running backs too because I potentially took at touchdown from them and they were happy for me. That was nice to see them cheering me on. That was a fun time."

Lawrence says he is the sixth-string running back now and still angling for a QB snap or two this season. Watch more below:
