Clemson Football

The life and fight of 15-year-old Ella Bresee has been a great source of inspiration for the Clemson football team this season.  Ella is the little sister of Clemson sophomore Bryan Bresee.  She lost her fight with brain cancer last week and her funeral service was held Tuesday in Maryland. Somewhere between 20 and 30 Clemson players and staff made the trip to support the Bresee family and honor Ella’s life.  Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney called it a ‘beautiful celebration of Ella’ as he reflected on the service Wednesday. Swinney took time at his weekly press conference to share the lasting impact Ella had on himself and his team.  Clemson is back to work Saturday when they travel to Winston-Salem, NC to take on 16th ranked Wake Forest.
