A surprising twist from Clemson at ACC media day

By  | 

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP) -- The Clemson Tigers decided not to send quarterback Trevor Lawrence to ACC media days.

The national champs sent a "stunt double" instead.

Offensive guard John Simpson, who will represent Clemson's offense at the annual media day, decided to wear a blonde wig to resembling the popular quarterback's signature hairstyle, knowing everyone would probably rather talk to Lawrence. The Tigers posted a video of Simpson trying on the wig on their football Twitter site.

While the 330-pound lineman may not look a whole lot like Lawrence, at least he's got the hair flip down.
