Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney gave all the credit to God and hard work after his team crushed Alabama 44-16 in the national championship game on Monday night.
In fact, Swinney’s speech was so faith-centered and conservative sounding we’re surprised the cameras didn’t cut away.
The coach got right to the point when asked about the “joy of the moment.”
“Well, that’s been my word all year, and I’ve tried to be intentional with that,” Swinney said. "And for me personally, joy comes from focusing on Jesus other than yourself.”
Refusing to take the credit for the incredible accomplishment, Swinney said it was only possible thanks to God.
“It's just a blessing. It’s simply the grace of the good Lord to allow us to experience something like this,” he said.

The Clemson Tigers made history by becoming the first college football team to go 15-0 and finish the season with a national championship.
“There ain’t never been a 15-0 team,” Swinney added. “I know we’re not supposed to be here, we’re just little ol’ Clemson… How about them Tigers? I’m so proud of our guys, these seniors. We beat Notre Dame and Alabama, we left no doubt.”
However, the coach once again went back to the Lord.
"All the credit, all the glory goes to the good Lord, number one. And number two to these young people," he said.
