Clemson’s Dabo Swinney ‘To Glorify God’ is My Purpose

Im a huge fan of Dabo Swinney. Not just because he’s a great football coach either.

Because he leads by example and shapes boys into men. Not just on the football field, but in life in general.

Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said during his press conference this week he wants his team to focus on one word this year: purpose. But Swinney – whose team is ranked No. 1 in the major polls – defines “purpose” differently than many football fans would. 

How does he define purpose? Let’s hear from him directly.

“My word is ‘purpose’ this year – my purpose as a man, my purpose as a father, my purpose as a husband, and then our purpose as a program. …. And then also helping my staff and my players find and fulfill their purpose.

Dabo is a class act in a world lacking it.

“[I’m] just really convicted on that. We’ve had a lot of success, I’m going into year 11, but we’ve stayed true to who we are the whole way. … I know what my purpose as a man is, and that’s to glorify God. That’s to be a great husband and father, and it’s to use the game of football to equip young people for life. That’s just that simple.”

That’s what we’re all supposed to do as Christians though right? Dabo is not only a winner and a great leader, but he does so with a conviction.
