CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Cole Stoudt did not grow antsy or angry during his three years as backup to Clemson record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd. After all, Stoudt had a strong model of patience at home in his father Cliff, a former Pittsburgh Steelers passer stuck behind NFL great Terry Bradshaw.
The younger Stoudt won the Tigers quarterback job coming out of spring workouts, although coach Dabo Swinney says freshman Deshaun Watson will have a chance to win the spot once fall camp starts up in August.
That's fine with Stoudt, who says he's learned to bide his time and do what's asked by his father. It's been that way for three seasons as he saw mostly mop-up time behind the talented and durable Boyd, who led Clemson to a 32-8 record.
