Jadeveon Clowney’s Mother Expects Son to Play in 2013


It seems that we just can’t stop talking about South Carolina Gamecocks star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, which is understandable since he is one of the  most dominating players in the college game. Clowney captivated the minds of college football fans when the idea surfaced that he should sit out the 2013 season to avoid injury.

Ultimately, Clowney and his head coach Steve Spurrier laughed off the situation, but the defensive star is considering taking out a $5 million insurance policy to protect himself from injury this season.

Now, the person who’s opinion matters more than anyone else in this case has weighed in on the story. That person is none other than Clowney’s mother.

“I talked to him this week, and he wants to play,” said Josenna Clowney. “I don’t think he has it in him to sit out. He loves to play football. I know I want him to play. I enjoy the college games so much. I enjoy the scenery and the stadiums. I would never want him to sit out a year.

He is being talked about now, but the talk is only going to get louder as we go through the college football season and he continues to dominate. There is little doubt that he will be in the discussion for the first-overall pick when the 2014 NFL Draft rolls around — especially if he keeps making plays like this:
