This is so cool!

During the Clemson Tigers vs. Alabama Crimson Tide NCAA football game on Monday, Jan. 7,  one of the Clemson football players expressed gratitude by making a sign that is all-too-familiar to Catholics.

Travis Etienne, a running back for the Clemson Tigers in South Carolina, made the sign of the cross, celebrating and thanking God for their victory in the end zone.

Senior editor Matthew Schmitz of First Things Magazine posted the video to twitter.
