Clemson's Dabo Swinney Shares a Touching Moment With Jake Pratt


Dabo Swinney knows a celebrity when he sees one.

Jake Pratt is a senior at Vestavia Hills High School in Alabama and had a touching moment last month during a football game that went viral. The two schools played a part in Pratt, who has Down Syndrome, scoring a very memorable touchdown.  

When Swinney and his assistant coaches ran onto the field Saturday, he did a double-take and realized who's hand he just shook. The Tigers coach took some time from his busy Saturday schedule to chat up the young man.

It's easy to see why Swinney is a favorite among fans.
