The Clemson Tigers won in a thrilling game against rival Auburn on Saturday, but for one member of the coaching staff, that wasn’t even the highlight of his week.
Instead, that honor went to a moment after the team’s practice on Thursday, when wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was baptized in front of his teammates and coaches.
Jeff Scott, Clemson’s wide receivers coach, took a picture of the ceremony and tweeted it out, calling it the “Highlight of [his] week.”
While Clemson as a university does not align itself with any particular religion, Hopkins’ choice may force them to reconsider. Two days after his baptism, Hopkins caught a school-record 13 passes and a touchdown to lead the Tigers to a win over Auburn.
