The Clemson Tigers held their last spring practice Friday afternoon before the team’s first scrimmage on Monday. Head coach Dabo Swinney was encouraged by what he saw, saying that the Tigers did a lot of good things and “are starting to develop a little bit of chemistry”.
Swinney also stated that he looked forward to Monday’s scrimmage. “Everything this spring has been building towards this first big scrimmage. Monday will be the first opportunity where it’s not a situational-type deal. You’re playing; you just play ball.” He also stressed a hope to figure out some of the positional depth charts, and Monday should play a big role in that.
Dabo also expressed his delight with the Clemson-Georgia series definitely happening over the next few years. “It’s something that I think people have been looking forward too for a while,” he said. “It’ll be a great gauge as to where we are when that game is played.”
Quarterback Tajh Boyd also met with the media following Friday’s practice. Boyd expressed his excitement with the Tiger’s group of receivers and running backs and the importance of having a veteran group of hard-working players.
Swinney has been a leader in the movement of wanting to scrimmage other teams in the spring, but for now he will have to live with his Tigers going against each other Monday.
