38 Days Until Kickoff! Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Of The Day

38 Days Until Kickoff! 

Dark Territory Clemson Letterman Photo Of The Day 

Deshaun Watson 



Deshaun Watson lettered at Clemson from 2014-2016 and put up record numbers at the quarterback position for the Tigers, guiding Clemson to consecutive College Football Playoff appearances and the 2016 National Championship. 



Watson led Clemson to 28 wins over his final two seasons while wearing the #4 jersey, the same number worn by former Tiger quarterback Steve Fuller. The number had been retired at Clemson, but Fuller allowed it to come out of retirement for Watson. 

Watson was a two-time Heisman Trophy finalist; finished third in the 2015 balloting with 148 first-place votes and second in 2016 with 269 first-place votes. Watson was the first ACC player to finish in the top three of the voting on multiple occasions. 



Watson was a two-time recipient of the Davey O’Brien Award, one of only four quarterbacks who can make that claim, and the first since Oklahoma’s Jason White in 2003 and 2004. 

Watson tied Rodney Williams and Tajh Boyd with 32 wins as a starter in the National Championship win over Alabama and Watson finished 3rd in ACC history in total offense with 12,094 yards, behind only NC State’s Philip Rivers and Boyd. 



Watson finished first in Clemson history in career completion percentage (.674), passing efficiency (157.5) and total offense per game (318.3). 

Watson also was a two-time All-ACC Academic Team (2015,16) selection and is believed to be the first quarterback in FBS history to pass at least 37 hours college credits and throw 35 or more touchdown passes in the same academic year (2015-16).

One of the great things about football season is that it offers the opportunity to welcome people to Clemson (either for the first time or after a long time away).  

At Clemson, we believe that we have something special and are excited to showcase that special college football environment each time we host a visitor.  Our goal  is very simple:  To be incredible hosts to our visitors and provide the ultimate game day experience.



There is an additional buzz in the air for Week 2 at Clemson, as we host the the Auburn Tigers and their fans for what should be an electric game day weekend with two Top 15 football teams in an ACC vs. SEC match-up in prime time!  We hope that your trip here will be exciting, memo…
