Few things can get Clemson fans riled up more than saying how Lamar Jackson deserved the Heisman last year. Not Deshaun Watson. Dabo Swinney on the other hand, thinks Lamar is unbelievable. We most certainly do not disagree. Listen to the full press conference below and hear all of the praises Coach Swinney gave to UofL.
