Germone Hopper found the endzone three times Friday night helping lead Berry Academy whip Garinger. TheClemsonInsider.com caught up with the Clemson verbal commit following the victory.
“We came out as usual. Then we got a little bit flat and then we played harder. At halftime the coach told us the game is not over. We let teams like this try to stick around. We play to their level. We are a better team than that,” said Hopper.
One of the Garinger defensive backs talked some trash with Germone just before he got burned for a touchdown.
“I was telling him to come up and play close. My coach told me it was okay if he played back. He told me to just stay on my route. I did and it was a touchdown,” said Hopper.
Germone was in the Valley last week when Clemson defeated Auburn.
“I was estatic. I was in the stands chearing like I never have before. I have never cheared like that before in a game. It is crazy how that is the field I am going to be playing on next year,” said Hopper.
How does Germone like Clemson’s new offense?
“It is great. That is the type of offense I would like to play in. I am the type of player that fits well in that offense. They said they will use me a little bit like Sammy Watkins last week,” said Hopper.
Germone will be back in the Valley Saturday. Who does he think will win?
“We are, Clemson Tigers all day,” said Hopper.
