There is no question that Deshaun Watson enjoyed watching the Clemson Tigers dismantle the Alabama Crimson Tide in the national championship. Although the superstar quarterback is about to enter his third season in the NFL, it’s clear that he’s still connected to his former team.
Watson finished his collegiate career with 10,168 passing yards, 1,934 rushing yards and 116 total touchdowns.
The statistics are definitely worthy of praise and recognition, but the most notable moment during his time at Clemson was his title victory over Alabama. In fact, Watson’s game-winning touchdown pass to Hunter Renfrow will go down as one of the most clutch plays in the history of the sport.
Clemson has shown its a powerhouse program, making four consecutive trips to the College Football Playoff.
Instead of thinking this recent stretch is just a testament to the Tigers’ dynamic quarterbacks in Watson and Trevor Lawrence, it might be time to consider them one of the few dynasties in the country.
When asked about whether or not Clemson deserves that label, Watson was very confident in his answer.
The Houston Texans quarterback did exactly that in his latest media appearance. Is Clemson officially a dynasty? “For sure,” Watson told the team Thursday morning on ESPN’s Get Up!
“The things that Coach (Dabo) Swinney is bring to that university, the recruits coming in, the things on the field each and every year, it’s one of the top, if not the best, program in the country,” Watson said.
With Lawrence leading the Tigers for at least two more seasons, the odds of them adding another title are strong.
Alabama was considered the gold standard of college football for almost a decade, but now it might be time to pass the torch to Clemson.
Clemson will likely start the 2019 season ranked No. 1 in the country.
