Swinney sends message to Heisman voters about Deshaun Watson

by - Assoc. Editor -

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney talked to reporters on Sunday afternoon after his team's 42-35 win over Virgina Tech.

Swinney shared his message to voters (12:40 mark) that still have not sent in their ballot for the 2016 Heisman Trophy Award.

"Deshaun Watson is the best player," Swinney said. "He might not have been the best player in September but he has been the best player in October, November, and December. His stats will bear that out but what he has done, it's incredible."

Watson passed for 23-for-34 for 288 yards, three passing touchdowns and an interception to lead Clemson to the 2016 ACC Championship in a 42-35 win over Virginia Tech. He also rushed 17 times for 85 yards and two scores.
