The Shaq Diaries


By Shaq Anthony.

Shaq Anthony, one of the leaders of the Clemson 2010 recruiting class, is doing a diary with  In this edition Shaq talks about his visit to Clemson on Saturday, his big win on Friday and much more!

We beat Hillcrest 35-0 this week.  We had a lot of fumbles.  I think we had six and they got three of them.

I graded out at 94% for the game and got player of the game.  I felt I played good, but there is always room for improvement.  I was looking at the video and studying it.  I am just trying to get better for the next game.

I am trying to improve my run blocking each week.  It has really been improving.  I am trying to prove some of the analysts wrong.  I am showing them that I have been working hard in the weight room and that I am a strong player.

I went to the Clemson game Saturday with two of my teammates, my head coach and my offensive line coach.  I had a really good time.  The game was kind of boring.  Some of the recruits left, but I stayed.  My teammates wanted to go in the locker room after the game and see the players.  I don’t take it for granted to sit there and watch college football.  I know next year I will be playing and won’t be able to sit there and watch.

I enjoyed the visit.  I am glad everyone got to play.  Everyone got a chance to do well.  DeAndre Hopkins really played well.  Rod McDowell got in there and showed he is a playmaker.  A lot of people under the radar are showing that they want to play.

Dabo told them that he wants to be a program that shows up no matter who they are playing.  He wants to play well each week.

I know they have a strong test against Auburn.  It is like our team.  When we play Greenville it will be a big test, but if Clemson and we play the way we can we will both win.

I talked to Grady Jarrett a little bit at the game.  He is a nice guy.  He is a really big guy.
