Video: Derrick Henry Embraced Deshaun Watson After The National Championship Game

Two of the country's top college football players were on display in the national championship game Monday night. One of them, unfortunately, had to lose. That someone was Deshaun Watson, whose Clemson squad fell to Derrick Henry's Alabama team, 45-40, in the second-ever College Football Playoff title game. 

After the game, as Alabama's celebration was amping up, Henry found Watson on the field. 

The two shared a moment. 

Watson, who will be a junior next season, wants to be where Henry is today - a national champion and a Heisman Trophy winner.

Clemson will likely start the 2016 season ranked No. 1 in the country. Watson will be one of the frontrunners to win the Heisman Trophy, too. A Derrick Henry-like season for the Tigers' quarterback is certainly possible.
