Clemson football coach Dabo Swinney discussed a variety of topics at his weekly press conference on Tuesday morning, but perhaps none more important than when he was asked about talking to his team about the tragedy in Las Vegas on Sunday.
“We talk about everything in our program,” Swinney told reporters, via Tiger Illustrated. “There is a lot going on in this world. Everyday is a life-teaching moment. The one thing I tell our guys is what the country wants, we have it here everyday. I see people who love each other, people who serve others, people who maybe don’t get along sometimes, people from different backgrounds, I see family, I see love, respect, communication. Sometimes people don’t know how to get there, but I see it here everyday.
“My focus is building great men right here in Clemson … keeping the main thing the main thing and not getting distracted. We equip people to go kick butt in life. Let’s teach them, let’s equip them and empower them. Let’s teach them how to disagree, let’s teach them how to succeed and move forward. We’re never perfect. We never will be. Every day we get a chance to succeed. We try to help young people process things.”
No. 2 Clemson (5-0 overall, 3-0 in ACC play) is preparing to face Wake Forest (4-1, 1-1) this weekend in an ACC Atlantic Division game.
