Clemson uses Drake graphic to hype next football season

Coaches always need to find a way to connect with their players. At the collegiate level, it is a bit easier to do as long as you pay attention to pop culture and the latest trends. No one does it better than Clemson Tigers head coach Dabo Swinney.

We have seen Swinney bust out the whip/nae nae and dab for his players in the past, so it should come as no surprise that the Clemson football program is once again tapping into the hip hop world.

In a graphic posted to celebrate National Signing Day, the Tigers borrowed the graphic from Drake’s “Summer Sixteen” single to hype up the upcoming season.

Check it out below:
