Dabo Swinney is no stranger to championship games.

His Clemson football team has been in the College Football Playoff National Championship game three of the last four years in which two of the three ended in glory.

Ironically, Swinney played his alma mater (Alabama) in all three of those championship games.

Nearly a month after Clemson was crowned the national champion of college football, Super Bowl LIII will decide the champion of the entire football world.

Prior to dismissing the team following the conclusion of practice, Swinney called one of his equipment managers David Saville, whom has Down Syndrome, to join him in front of the team.

Swinney then surprised his equipment manager with two tickets to Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta.

Saville immediately responded with a hug for the Clemson coach as the entire team applauded.

Swinney told Saville that he could go with his father, but jokingly hinted that he might take the extra ticket for himself.
