8 beautiful plays from Mike Williams (via Deshaun Watson).

Other iterations:

8 plays from Jordan Leggett

8 plays from Wayne Gallman

8 plays from the defensive backfield

These are Good Times for Clemson

“Good Times”.

Teamwork

I’ve shown the play below multiple times, in multiple scenarios, but I’ve never specifically pointed out why this play was successful (h/t to SUR message board members who alerted me).  So, for this iteration, I’ve added a couple of freeze frames to illustrate.  At the snap of the ball Mike Williams realizes that Tavarus McFadden is blitzing, stops his route and points to him (first freeze frame Williams is near bottom left of screen under “World Series” on the crawl). Wayne Gallman, who is looking for someone to block in the middle, sees the blitz and moves back to block McFadden (second freeze frame) and stop him from blindsiding Deshaun Watson. Deshaun throws, Leggett catches and rumbles, Tigers win.

The Making of a Champion: Episode 21

After a 5 yard completion to Jordan Leggett Clemson faced a 2nd and five from their 37 with under 2 minutes to go.  No worries, just throw it up to Mike Williams. The resulting 24 yard gain gave the Tigers a first down at the Alabama 39.
