Clemson fans across the nation are giddy with excitement as the National Championship title game between #1 Clemson vs. #2 Alabama is only five short days away.

Heisman finalist Deshaun Watson's hometown is in Gainesville, Georgia and fans painted a large rock to show their support of Watson and his teammates.

The Rock is painted Orange with several white paws and had "Deshaun Won More" and "Beat Bama" in purple lettering.

The tradition behind the Rock is that the students paint it before each football game during the season and this week they have been "All-In" with Clemson.

Watson has equal love for his Gainesville Red Elephants as he wore a red suit at the Heisman Trophy awards ceremony in honor of his old stomping grounds.
