Position: Head Coach

Clemson's youth football camp was in full swing over the weekend with over a thousand kids taking in instruction and drills from coaches, playing tag football and touring the campus and facilities.

Head coach Dabo Swinney addressed the campers over the weekend and had the following inspirational message about paying the price to succeed in life.

"There's no elevator to greatness," Swinney said. "There are no elevators to your goals and dreams and desires. You must take the steps. Everybody got that? Nobody’s giving you an elevator to take you (there). If they did, it ain’t gonna last, because you’re not going to be prepared, because you didn’t pay the price, alright? What I’m telling you is y’all never been 15. You’ve never been 20. You’ve never been 25. But hopefully, Lord willing, you will be, so what we want to do is try to prepare you, through our experiences, through our mistakes, through our successes, so hopefully, you’ve got a leg up on being successful."
