Spiers has become a weapon for Clemson

By

Will Spiers took questions from the media this week as No. 1 Clemson gets set to host Virginia Saturday at Death Valley.

Through two games this season, Spiers is averaging 44.1 yards per punt, including a long of 56 yards. He has also dropped three of his seven punts inside the 20-yard line.

As head coach Dabo Swinney has said, he has become quite the weapon for the Tigers.

Spiers on being a leader as a punter

“I guess in our position we don’t have as much say as you will with the team, but I feel like you earn that respect of a leader through how you work in the weight room or just how you lead guys around you. I think that comes with character too, so for me it’s just sticking to who I am and believing in who I am and using that to be a leader.”

Spiers on the work he did in the offseason

“I feel like for me every year it’s just consistency. Definitely worked on a little bit of hang time and getting consistent with that and with the punts inside the twenty.”

Spiers on what he’s seen from Aidan Swanson

“He brings a lot to the table. He can kickoff, kick field goals, and obviously punts. He does a great job and he’s working hard and definitely going to be a good player one day.”

“It’s been a blessing. It’s been awesome to have him here. It’s something very special that we can share together. Having my family up here has been great. I get to experience this but for them to get to experience it as well has been really cool.”

“I’ve definitely thought about it whenever it came out. I’m not going to answer right now, but of course I thought about it when they came out with that decision.”
