Clemson senior defensive tackle Grady Jarrett has just finished a successful student athlete career at Clemson University.

Jarrett had a career high 3.5 tackles for loss in his 48th and final game in the 40-6 thumping of Oklahoma. He also was voted as one of the football team's permanent captains for 2014.

He posted the following to his Instagram account on why he worked so hard during his time at Clemson.

"When they said no one makes it out of Rockdale County.. I'm just getting started. This is much bigger than myself. This for the kids they tell are too small to play division 1 sports n chase their dream, for the kid they tell they aren't smart enough to graduate college, this for the kids that sacrifice just to chase a dream, this for the kids that's out there grinding while no one looking and all ya other friends out running around "having all the fun", this for the kids that continue to study their books and challenge themselves in the classroom while others make fun of them, this for the kids that made a promise to their family, this for the kids that refuse to let any friend, coach, teacher, scout, hater, family member limit what they can accomplish.. Keep working baby boy and baby girl, keeping believing. We can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens us! ALL THINGS. Love."
