Clemson football coach helps two stranded Notre Dame fans

Two Notre Dame fans who feared they might be stranded in the torrential South Carolina rains last week were rescued by an unlikely hero, according to a story by the Charleston Post and Courier's Aaron Brenner.

Following Clemson's 24-22 win on Saturday, brothers Larry and Tony Luppi missed a shuttle to their hotel and decided to walk the rest of the way. That's when they stopped at a convenience store and met Clemson offensive line coach Robbie Caldwell, who gave them a ride back to the hotel and directions to the highway.

Since Caldwell was dressed in his Clemson attire, the brothers assumed he was just a fan. But during the drive, they learned Caldwell coached during the game they had just left.

Caldwell refused any compensation from the two fans but Luppis told the Post and Courier they will send him a thank-you card and a gift card to Bass Pro Shops.
