Dabo Swinney was certainly touched by Louisiana Tech’s kind gestures toward the Bresee family following the passing of Bryan Bresee’s sister, Ella.

Ella Bresee, 15, died Thursday of brain cancer, and the Tigers star defensive tackle missed Saturday’s game, as he remained with his family mourning the loss of his sister. Bresee is set to return to Clemson’s team on Sunday, according to Swinney.

Louisiana Tech head coach Sonny Cumbie and his team went out of their way to honor Ella’s life Saturday and send their sympathy to the Bresee family. Cumbie wore an “E11a Strong’ shirt on gameday, and Louisiana Tech’s entire team, including Cumbie, each wrote handwritten letters to the Bresee family.

That certainly made an impression on Swinney, as he spoke about it after Clemson beat Louisiana Tech 48-20.

“I just want to say how encouraged I was tonight by just the class of Coach Cumbie and La. Tech,” Swinney said in a somber voice. “It’s really encouraging. You hear so much bad. You don’t often-times get to hear the good. There’s a lot of good, but unfortunately, the bad usually gets the headlines.

“Man, I’m going to tell you, just as a human being, I was super encouraged tonight. So, coach came out there and had an ‘E11a Strong’ shirt on, and he gave me a letter that he wrote Bryan. Then, after the game, I got a letter from the entire team. The entire team took the time to write Bryan and his family a letter.

“That’s everything good about college football. I’ve never met Coach Cumbie, but I’ll be a fan of his for his entire career.”
