Clemson verbal commitment Jay Guillermo, one of the leaders of the 2012 recruiting class, is doing a diary with TheClemsonInsider.com. In this edition Jay talks about two big wins to start the season and looks forward to seeing the Tigers in Death Valley on Saturday.
We won our first two games. In the first game we defeated the defending state champ for the private schools. This week we defeated our rivals Alcoa. They had won the state seven years in a row.
We stopped their 44 game win streak. We were the last team to beat them. We won 26-19.
It is very exciting to win those first two. We came in and beat two very good teams. That is a good sign for us. We play Knoxville West this week then we have a bye.
My ankle did pretty good. I have some patches I put on it. It helped with the pain. It has gotten a little bit better. It hurt worse when I had to run down linebackers. This week they played a 3-4 so I just had to go against a nose guard.
I have been talking with Patrick and some of the guys. We talked before his game last week. I have just been keeping in touch with all of the guys. I have also been talking with coach Brooks and coach Caldwell.
I am very excited about coming to Clemson this weekend for the first game. Right now I am not sure who will be coming with me. I am sure my grandfather will.
