Social media is a big part of the sports world today, with fans looking to sites like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to get behind-the-scenes looks at their favorite teams on the collegiate and professional level.
One team that was very active on social media this year, especially Twitter, was the Clemson Tigers football team. Clemson was so active on Twitter that Twitter itself sent the Tigers’ social media team a trophy that had “Best Twitter in College Football” engraved on it.
A picture of the trophy was posted to Twitter by Jonathan Gantt, Clemson’s Digital & Creative Director.

This award was more than deserved on Clemson’s end. As the Tigers enjoyed an historic season that included big wins over Notre Dame and Louisville in the regular season, then North Carolina in the ACC Championship Game and Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl as part of the College Football Playoff Semifinal, Clemson’s social media were full of everything from hype videos to teammates enjoying time together away from the football field to even workouts.
Once the season was over, videos celebrating Clemson’s run to the national championship game where they just barely lost to Alabama were posted.
Long story short, between Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and everything else, Clemson definitely won college football’s Social Media Olympics in 2015.
