You aren’t the only one who thinks Hunter Renfrow’s been at Clemson forever.
He agrees with you.
The wide receiver, who caught the game-winning touchdown against Alabama for the 2016 national championship game, met with the media on Thursday ahead of the Tigers’ semifinal matchup with Notre Dame in the Cotton Bowl.
“I feel like I’ve been here forever,” Renfrow said. “I’ve been here a long time and it feels like it. I’m looking forward to finishing well and moving on.”
Renfrow is a fifth-year senior and former walk-on.
He caught two touchdowns in the Tigers’ first national championship game against Alabama, and two more when Clemson beat the Crimson Tide to win the 2016 title.
He was even asked about the highly debated play. Was it a pick play or a rub play?
“It was a defensive pass interference.”
You be the judge.
Renfrow’s 2-yard touchdown catch gave Clemson a 35-31 lead and the school’s first national championship since 1981.
Offensive coaches and players will say the play was a rub, with a receiver running a route.
Defensive coaches and players will say it was an illegal pick.
Either way, to this day, the play still gets a reaction from fans of both teams.
