    Pretty sweet they brought a jersey for Barron. Also, pics of Deshaun Watson shaking hands with POTUS. How come HE didn’t have a problem shaking hands like a man?

      B/c Deshaun is a big enough man to not act like a baby. Great, tough player and really fun to watch.

        Deshaun comes from the town and school system where I work. He’s a much-loved personage ’round these parts, and he loves his mama. We are very proud of him!!

          Whoever taught him to shake hands like a man, Kudos!! I had Mitch Trubisky in school and feel the same way. These young men give me hope for the future.

          My Mom worked with an older, classy lady named, Olga. One day, in the suitcases and greeting cards dept, she gave me some words of advice I have never forgotten:

          To know a man’s heart and to know he’s the right one, watch how he treats his momma. If he treats her with love and respect, he will do the same with you. If not, run to the hills and fast. He’s a bad one.

          I have never forgotten her advice, only the exact words she had used. I also know through experience she was so right.

          So when you mentioned how well he loves his momma, there is no doubt in my mind he will do the same with his future wife and children. What a beautiful thing you shared with us. Thank you.

        DeShaun is very talented and will most likely have a lucrative NFL career.

        Still wish it was Bama visiting POTUS today, maybe next year. Roll Tide!

  4. President Trump sounded really upbeat and happy. With everything going on I’m glad he gets to do things like this that he enjoys. The players looked like they were having a good time too.

      I’m more of a pup-pup kinda gal, always have been since I grew up with bird-hunting dogs. However, ever since I’ve been coming here to CTH, especially to the Open Thread, cats have been warming up to me and me to them. Crazy huh? Yeah, some of them even have me wrapped around their adorable, little paws, and I don’t seem to be minding it a bit.

      Thank you Treepers, my mind has opened up in so many ways and directions. Oh, and I so love Caturday’s, they’re simply the best. Be well and stay smiling!

    Thank you Sundance, don’t know why this made me tear up, not really into football, didn’t see the game, but it is so nice to see young men respect themselves, the office of the President, President Trump himself and just be some good old American boys. Guess it’s the little things…

    When I was a child I lived on Lee Terrace in Birmingham, Al. The Swenny family lived on the same street and Tracy Swenny (dabo’s brother) was one of my best friends. There is a middle brother named Trip. I remember the day Dabo came home from the hospital. Dabo had a beautiful mom and I remember we couldn’t wait to see him. We ran behind the car once on Lee Terrace. The point is we were all poor bit happy. Dabo came from nothing! He made it due to hard work. Even if you do not pull for Clemson, pull for Dabo. He is the American dream for he wasgiven nothing and came from nothing.

      LKA IN LA,
      And yet he had everything, great loving family and good, solid friends.

      I know what you are saying though, and to overcome all odds and obstacles one needs the backing of family. It doesn’t matter if it is only one member or one friend that pulled them through to see their promise within. I think every great success has one of these people.

      However, to come from nothing, poverty, is a story of great strength of one’s mind. It’s good to be so proud of him, and it’s great the kids of his neighborhood are able to witness it. To give hope is amazing gift.

      I’m sure there are a few here envious of you knowing him and his family, but in a good way. I know I am. Please keep sharing your memories with us, it gives us hope too.
      Be well,

        Dabo’s father was an alcoholic. His family was dysfunctional. It wasn’t just that they were dirt poor. Also Dabo will be the first to tell you that he owes everything to the grace of God.


      • LKA in LA says:

        Thanks for pointing out what he did have. I got out also and love watching his success because of our roots. I am most proud he credits God because it shows wisdom.

        Here is another memory of the scene, his mom is carrying Dabo in a bundle, the neighborhood kids are watching in the driveway, I thought, wow—she looks like a gold digger off the Dean Martin show. I was in awe. She was the prettiest mom in the neighborhood. Lol ridiculous.

          No ridiculous at all. Children can see more than us adults can. You saw the real thing. She was beautiful inside and out.
          Thank you for sharing, it never gets old, and always brings a smile.


    • MKetch says:

      Absolutely! A movie could be made about his life to rival Blindside. 😊


    • joanfoster says:

      Dabo gave a very inspiring speech today. I can completely understand how he gets so much out of his players. It’s because he gives so much. He’s a great guy, he has done a fantastic job at Clemson and I applaud his enthusiasm, values and character.


      • Bruce Fauth says:

        Even though I pull for “the other team” in South Carolina, gotta admire Dabo and what his cats did. Without Watson, maybe Gamecocks can beat them cats in 2017.

    Clemson fan here…

    Live 45 mins away. Clemson is a great college area. Very rural, surrounded by farms and what not. They are lucky enough not to be “urbanized” like most college towns are.

    Dabo is an out-spoken Christian and he attempts to recruit the athletes that mirror his collar, family oriented, with character.

    Deshaun Watson is a true gentleman and humble. He’s awesome on and off the field.

    Glad to see the excitement with all meeting the Prez!
    Great moment for CLEMSON!

    Good team response to the President. I will point out what I have said many times on this board. I am a long ago “yankee” transplanted into the South many, many tears ago. I love living here.

    It has been my experience that many young men, black or white, are “Good ole boys”. ( I define them as God-fearing, family oriented and strong.They respect elders and women—work hard, and
    many would give you the shirts off their backs. They treasure their pick up trucks–often with a gun rack on the back. They say “yes mam” when talking to an older woman.) These football players
    are their sons!

    Clemson is a great school, also despite its popularity rise over the years have stuck to their roots and size by staying the norm in acceptance numbers.
    Dabo is a tough coach but gets results. The finals against Alabama was amazing from both sides of the field.

    Looking forward to Nick Saban and the Crimson Tide being honored by President Trump sooner than later. But today, I salute the Clemson Tigers because they whooped us good, fair-n-square.

    Deshaun Watson is a class act. If you have ever watched him interact w/children after the game, you would see how humble he is. He lingers on the field to have his pic. taken with fans. He is a humble a person as you will ever meet. He always gives God the glory.

    Dabo is as straight as an arrow and sets an outstanding Christain example for his players.

    Way to be a class act, C-L-E-M-S-O-N! GO TIGERS!!

      All true 4sure. They worked hard, Dabo has built an amazing program, lots of talented young men he’s recruited. Yes DeShaun is very humble and down to earth, hope the NFL and all that $$ doesn’t change him.

    Okay, I graduated from the real university in South Carolina, but I married into YUGE Orange. I know some of my folks will see me as traitor, but dang, I’m proud of Clemson, South Carolina, and POTUS. The jerseys for POTUS and Barron were really nice too. cough Go Tigers!
