Thomas wanted to challenge himself, not take easy route

Clemson defensive end Xavier Thomas saw his first action at Death Valley Saturday afternoon in the second-ranked Tigers’ 48-7 victory over Furman.

Thomas called it a special experience. The freshman said he wanted to challenge himself by coming to Clemson to play with the best defensive linemen, not take the easy route.

The media caught up with Thomas following the win over the Paladins.
