The lesson here, Ben Boulware doesn’t forget.
The Clemson linebacker tweeted Tuesday just how long his memory lasts.
He pointed to a quote from ESPN analyst Desmond Howard, calling the Tigers’ linebackers the team’s Achilles’ heel. Coming off the team’s first national title in 35 years, Boulware got a tattoo of the trophy, on the back of his heel.
Boulware was an emotional leader for the Tigers and in his final season won a share of the ACC Defensive Players of the Year award and Defensive MVP of the National Championship Game.
