Boulware says he isn't a dirty player

After almost getting ejected for a high hit on Boston College quarterback Patrick Towles last Friday, Clemson linebacker Ben Boulware defended his play on Monday.

“If you go back and look at my career all of my plays, aside from maybe two or three, have been clean,” the senior said.

Boulware was criticized last week for his play on Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson when he held the Cardinals’ playmaker in a chokehold.

“I don’t play the game that way. I never have and I never will,” he said. “If have to bench press a guy to get him down or shove him or tackle a guy by his head like in Louisville, or by his neck or whatever to get him down, I’m going to do it. I’m going to get the guys down by any means necessary. If people think that it is cheap or I’m a dirty player because of it than it is what it is.”
