The streets of a small town stayed animated and excited as waiving banners and celebratory signs stood several rows deep. Close to 70,000 fans filed and filed most of Death Valley’s 80,000-plus capacity, but there was no game to be played.

Clemson had already won their tests. This wasn’t an exhibition, it was a celebration.

After eight seasons of growing and building under the watch of head coach Dabo Swinney, the Tigers’ players continuously tested on bigger stages and under brighter lights, coach’s long-term plans are being lived out in the moment as Clemson is the National Champion of College Football for the second time.

After the 2016 Tigers topped Swinney’s alma mater Alabama for the title 35-31 in Tampa, the school, fans, and community came together Saturday morning for a parade and party to honor the group that ended a 35 year wait to be number one again since previously winning it all back in 1981.
