Peake, Scott and Renfrow celebrate after a big play against Alabama

Former Clemson players Charone Peake and D.J. Reader are participating this week in Senior Bowl practices in Fairhope, Alabama.

Peake spoke to reporters this week and lamented on the 24-point fourth quarter that propelled Alabama to a 45-40 win over Clemson. One of Peake's top collegiate games was a six catch, 99-yard effort against Alabama.

"We felt like we dominated the game," Peake said via al.com. "Those couple two or three plays took over and kinda overshadowed our play. The scoreboard didn't show it, but I felt like we dominated the game."

However, Peake knows that the future is bright for Clemson football.

"I know for a fact every guy in that locker room gave everything they had, so there's nothing to be disappointed about," Peake said. "A lot of the guys on the team are young. They'll have a chance to go back there next year."

Peake had 50 receptions for 716 yards and five touchdowns this season. For his career, he had 99 catches for 1172 yards and ten scores.

The Reese’s Senior Bowl will be held Saturday, January 30 at 1:30 p.m. CT in Mobile, Alabama.
