Clemson LB Ben Boulware pens heartfelt letter to Tigers fans
Less than 24 hours after Clemson suffered a heartbreaking, 45-40 loss to Alabama in the College Football Playoff National Championship, Tigers linebacker Ben Boulware penned an emotional letter to fans thanking them for their support. The junior tackling machine ended the letter with the "Clemson in Cadence Count" cheer.
Clemson (14-1) reached the title game for the first time since it won a national championship in 1981 and finished the 2015 season ranked No. 2 in the final AP poll.
Boulware, who had been battling an arm injury the final two games of the year, tallied eight tackles against Alabama (14-1) and finished the season as Clemson's third-leading tackler with 82 stops.
