All-ACC awards were divvied out on Monday afternoon, and Clemson led the way with 10 total recipients of all-conference honors.

Among those recipients, quarterback Trevor Lawrence and wide receiver Amari Rodgers were each handed first-team offensive honors, while freshman defensive tackle Bryan Bresee and cornerback Derion Kendrick earned first-team defensive notoriety.

Running back Travis Etienne earned second-team recognition as both a running back and all-purpose player, while offensive tackle Jackson Carman was also selected for the Tigers.

On defense, three Clemson Tigers were named to the All-ACC second team: Nolan Turner, Baylon Spector and Andrew Booth, Jr.

Freshman defensive end Myles Murphy was named overall Newcomer of the year in the ACC.

Trevor Lawrence earned ACC Offensive Player of the Year. This is Lawrence’s first such award, with the previous two going to Lawrence’s deadly backfield partner, Travis Etienne.
