is rehabbing from a torn ACL injury and will not be available for Saturday's spring game.

However, that has not stopped Watson from being excited for the future and has high expectations for himself and the program.

“The next step is getting better, win all 12 games and win the ACC championship,” Watson told SN. “Go undefeated and win it all. That’s the goal, and all of us really want it.”

The schedule will be daunting with away games to Louisville, Miami and South Carolina. Tough home games against Florida State, Notre Dame and Georgia Tech are also looming.

Setting and reaching for big personal goals can lead to many positive attributes including resiliency in the short term, possible long term improvements, confronting and overcoming personal deficiencies and developing good day-to-day practice habits.

In his rookie campaign, Watson completed 67.9% of his passes for 1,466 yards (10.7 per attempt) with 14 touchdowns and only two interceptions for a tremendous quarterback rating of 188.57.

Swinney added that the football team has to bring it game in and game out.

“The big thing for us is consistency,” Swinney said. “When we won the league in ’11 for the first time since ‘91, I remember vividly how everybody was excited. My message to the team was we have to have three, four, five 10-win seasons if we are going to develop the program we want and be known as one of the more relevant teams.”
