Clemson recruited Noah DeHond to play football in 2017. The Rochester, New York native played on the offensive line. He was redshirted his freshman year before suffering a neck injury in 2018. He never got a chance to play in a game. “I have no regrets about my time with the football team,” DeHond said. “I gave it everything I had, and I left better than I came in.” After retiring from football, DeHond decided to follow another dream. “I had my little Halloween fire outfit when I was a kid,” he said. He is still at Clemson, but he’s on a different team now. He traded his football helmet for a Clemson University firefighter helmet. “My freshman year, I drove by the fire station because it’s right by my dorm. And I was like, ‘I wonder if I could do an internship there?’” he said.
