Register, Dudley remain undefeated

GREENSBORO, N.C - Last Friday, Clemson commit Chris Register helped lead his team to a huge victory over Durham (N.C.) Hillside. Following the game, the four-star Dudley linebacker spoke with FOX Sports Next about the win, his future and more.

Last week, Dudley dominated Hillside 24-7.

Despite the win, Chris Register was not satisfied.

"We just have to keep moving – keep getting better," said the 6-foot-4, 230-pound Register. "We just have to keep clicking on offense and keep clicking on defense."

Register felt good about his performance, but said it was a team effort.

"I feel like I did my part," he said. "I played pretty well. I was getting double-teamed a lot, but our line made all the plays. They played very well. Our team just played well."

Register committed to Clemson back in May and said he is happy to have the recruiting process behind him.

"I feel like there is a weight off my shoulders and I get to focus on my schoolwork," he said.

The Dudley star said he knew Clemson was where he needed to be.

"It felt like family when I went down there," Register said. "I feel like they'll take care of me when I get down there."

"I also like the tradition and the fans. It's just crazy. From the Tiger Walk to the busing around to the Hill before the game – it's crazy."

He recently went down to Death Valley when the Tigers beat Georgia.

"It was live," he said. "You wouldn't really believe it unless you were there in person. I just enjoyed the whole trip."

The linebacker said his relationship with the coaches played an important role in his decision.

"I have a really good relationship with all the coaches," Register said. "The coaches treat us like they're our fathers."

"Coach Swinney is honest. He's real conservative and he's the type of coach I want to play for."

For now, Register is focused on the rest of the season.

"I'm just trying to get better," Register said. "I've got a lot to work on – I'm not perfect. I'm just trying to get better every week."

"I want to get a (state championship) ring. I haven't gotten one since I've been here. I'm not worried about myself. I'm worried about my team and what we can accomplish."

Dudley continues their season this Friday on the road against Durham (N.C.) Northern.
