Swinney will auction off Clemson pontoon featured on "Flipping Ships"


by - Assoc. Editor -

Former Clemson offensive lineman and radio analyst Will Merritt pulled his pontoon outside the indoor practice facility Wednesday to shoot a promotional video with head coach Dabo Swinney for Swinney's All In Ball.

Swinney will auction off the pontoon as part of a tailgating weekend, and Merritt agreed to donate his pontoon, which was featured on Animal Planet's "Flipping Ships" with Edwin McCain last year.

The pontoon features a Clemson theme, and has two seats from the old Fike Fieldhouse on the bow, and there are also two wooden seats from the old Memorial Stadium.

Speaking of Edwin McCain - here is his classic hit single "I'll Be" from 1997.
