Following the game, the four-star Dudley linebacker and Clemson commit Chris Register spoke with Scout.com.
Chris Register and Dudley won the 4A state championship on Saturday.
"We always talked about finishing during the year and we finally did it," said the 6-foot-4, 235-pound Register.
It was a dominate performance by the Panthers' defense, who only allowed 113 yards of total offense.
"The whole year, we've just been clicking," he said. "That comes from practice and this is probably been the closest team I've been on since I've been at Dudley."
Register took his official visit to Clemson last month and enjoyed the trip.
"I went on my official visit when they had their last home game," Register said. "I just chilled and I really enjoyed hanging out with the players."
The Dudley standout had numerous scholarship offers, but said he just knew Clemson was the right place for him.
"It's family," he said. "I felt the family atmosphere down there. I see the same thing in coach (Dabo) Swinney that I see in my high school coach. He's always honest with me and he's like a father figure."
Against Scotland, Register finished with nine tackles and a sack.
