THIS IS EPISODE 9 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST
Hunter Renfrow is a wide receiver for the Clemson Tigers.
On January 9, 2017, the Clemson Tigers won College Football’s National Championship game, beating Alabama 35-31. With just :01 left on the clock, Tigers QB Deshaun Watson found Renfrow for the 2-yard touchdown pass and a trip to college football immortality.
On this episode of the podcast, we talk to Hunter Renfrow about that moment where he scores the winning touchdown and wins college football’s national title. We also ask him about the faith of his coach Dabo Swinney and the impact he has had on Hunter’s life both on and off the field.
Wow…. All Love and glory to God!! With him all things are possible! So proud of this team!!!!!!! #NationalChampions

“Life’s about Jesus. It starts and ends with that.”
“There’s never really a moment too big or too small because Jesus is always going to be there.”
“My faith became my own in high school. I could just see how much trouble was in the world and how much joy and life there is in Jesus and when we live according to his plan.”
“Through a lot of prayer, God was just telling me that he wanted me at Clemson.”
“Coach Swinney genuinely cares about people. He’s taught me far more about life than he has football.”
“The leadership we have in this program is just unique and special.”
“I get reminded of it a lot. I’m glad I caught it. I’m a lot happier that I caught instead of dropping it. I might have had to transfer or something.”
“How I carry myself and my actions, I just try to reflect the Lord.”
“Life’s about Him. When we forget that and try to do it on our own, he corrects us real quick.”
“You have to be held accountable. We have a bible study on the team that meets once a week.”
“God is teaching me to use my platform and to be available. Available for God and be used however he wants me.”
