Future Clemson punter Bradley Pinion visited the Shriners Hospital on Sunday where he learned the true meaning of Shrine Bowl week.
“It is pretty cool. It is actually a big honor to be able to be out here with the kids and give back to the community. Actually they are giving back to us letting us play in the game to honor them,” said Pinion.
How does it feel to represent North Carolina in the Shrine Bowl?
“It is really awesome. I never really thought I would be picked for it. It is an honor,” said Pinion.
The All-American is getting to spend time with at least ten of his future teammates this week.
“It is really cool. Actually two of them will be rooming with me (at Clemson) O.J. and Patrick. We are all going in early. It is really cool. It is a good experience to go ahead and get to know a lot of your teammates. You get to spend some time together and go ahead and bond. It is great,” said Pinion.
The ACC Championship for the Tigers didn’t surprise Bradley.
“All In, I knew it was going to happen from the get go. That is why I am going to Clemson,” said Pinion.
