Tigers Earn Numerous National Honors After Shutout Win Over Citadel

While it might have only been The Citadel, three Clemson Football players still played well enough to earn recognition from Pro Football Focus (PFF).

PFF named the Clemson defensive front the Defensive Line of the Week, and Bryan Bresee was named the True Freshman of the Week for the second consecutive week.

Trevor Lawrence was named National Offensive MVP for the second straight week, while Frank Ladson Jr was named to the PFF Team of the Week.

Lawrence is currently leading the way in the Heisman race as well according to the rankings at PFF.

“As of now, Lawrence is firmly in the No. 1 spot — and no one is particularly close to him. Through two weeks of play, the Clemson quarterback has earned a 96.6 passing grade while recording six big-time throws and no turnover-worthy plays. On throws of 10 or more yards downfield, Lawrence has been off-target just once en route to a near-perfect grade. And we have yet to see him really put his mobility on display outside of a few zone reads in the red zone (largely because we haven’t had to see it). If he continues to put up elite numbers, Lawrence could top some of the PFF College records that Joe Burrow set in 2019”


And of course, the Tigers are sitting atop the PFF team rankings.
