CHRISTIAN WILKINS JUNIOR // COMMUNICATION // SPRINGFIELD, MASS.
Christian Wilkins traveled a long way to get to Clemson, but from the moment he arrived on campus, he made it his second home. There are few people who embrace their University, and life itself, quite like Christian. He is known for his positive energy, genuine character, and indomitable spirit. And he is also a pretty good football player! Christian was an integral part of the Tiger’s national championship season. Recognized as one of the nation's most versatile defensive linemen, as well as an All-ACC Academic Team selection, Christian is probably best known for his larger-than-life personality and love for Clemson. IPTAY was created for student-athletes like Christian, who come to these hills from points far and wide, and give their all on the field of competition, in the classroom, and for their teammates and classmates. “IPTAY is an organization that represents the spirit of Clemson, Christian says. “You see all these people at games and they are so supportive. As a football player, you think about all the people in the stands who have helped you with your education. It brings everyone together.” Thank you, Christian, for bringing us together and embodying the spirit of IPTAY and the indomitable spirit of Clemson.
