The starting right tackle is indifferent about his final run down the hill into Death Valley.
"I've always said I cannot stand pre-game. I like how it was in high school. You walk out of the locker room, you play the game," Price said. "That's as far as I'm going to say about it, without actually saying anything. People might construe that I don't like to run down the hill.
"I enjoy running down the hill. That's nice, but I'd rather just walk out of the locker room and play the game."
The pre-game recognition is hunky-dory for the other seniors. It's just, that kind of stuff, it isn't for him.
"I'm sure, in 10 years, I'll think about my last game. I'm excited more for the other guys," Price said. "It's more of a big deal to them than it is to me. I want them to have a good time. I want them to enjoy it. I want the younger boys to understand that it will be them at some point. As far as I'm concerned, the way I feel about it, it's just a game."
But the Wake Forest showdown isn't just another game.
A Clemson win would clinch the school's second ACC Atlantic title in three years and secure a trip to Charlotte, N.C. on Dec. 3 for the ACC Championship.
"That's what means something to me," Price said. "We've got to focus on playing the game -- doing what we can do, not beating ourselves. That's got to be the main focus this week -- not beat ourselves, play the right way and everything will fall in the right place."
In the meantime, he has a message to pass along to the his teammates who weren't around the last time Clemson won an ACC Atlantic title.
"Losing stinks," Price said. "You've got to stay focused. You've got to keep working. There's no replacement for preparation and hard work."
Enough with the hype
