Clemson senior safety Jadar Johnson posted a heartfelt message on his Facebook account to all Clemson fans after finishing his career with a national title and was credited with an impressive seven tackles and a forced fumble.

"I don't even know where to start," Johnson said. "This season has really been amazing. It just puts the icing on the cake for my four year journey here. The Clemson Tigers are National Champions. It's really starting to sink in now that my experience here is over. So many memories have been made, and every one of them continues to run through my head. I just want to thank my Clemson family for giving me the opportunity to go to school and play football here. I also want to thank this wonderful fan base we have. You guys are the best. Every win, every L ... y'all were still there waiting to dance with us or cheer us up. I appreciate it, I truly do. To the Orangeburg community, I do this for you. All the support I get from y'all gives me that extra motivation to push through every obstacle. I couldn't be more proud to say I'm from Orangeburg. Even through my first years at Clemson when I wasn't playing as much, the whole city stayed in my corner & I really appreciate everyone for that. It meant more to me that you will ever know. Lastly, to my family, I wouldn't be here with out y'all. The endless support, encouragement, & love I received from y'all kept me stronger than any workout could. I knew anytime I needed something; I could depend on any one of you guys. I love each and every one of you. So with all that being said, my token of appreciation is dedicated this National Championship to you guys. I would not be a part of this great success without the strength of all of you. Thanks for believing in me and my teammates. May God bless all of you... Go Tigers!"
