Three Clemson Players Earn ACC Weekly Honors

by Austin Silvey @SilveyESP

The ACC released their Week 9 players of the week on Monday afternoon. Three Clemson players made the list.

Diondre Overton was named the Wide Receiver of the Week for his outstanding career-high performance vs BC. He recorded a career-high 119 yards on three receptions for a school-record-tying three touchdowns. It represented his first career 100-yard receiving game, surpassing his previous career high of 75 yards set against Florida State in 2018.

Following the contest, he was presented with the Leather Helmet Award from the Boston College Gridiron Club as the game's most valuable player.

Tremayne Anchrum was named the Offensive Lineman of the Week. Anchrum's selection marks the second of his career, as he was previously honored for his performance in Clemson's season-opening win against Furman in 2018. The award is Clemson's fourth Offensive Lineman of the Week honor this season, joining two won by John Simpson and another garnered by Matt Bockhorst.

Against Boston College, Anchrum graded out at 92 percent with two knockdowns, according to the Clemson coaching staff. He and his offensive line cohorts helped Clemson exceed both 300 yards passing and 300 yards rushing in a single game for the fifth time under Dabo Swinney. Clemson outgained Boston College, 674-177, and the 497-yard margin was Clemson’s largest yardage differential against an ACC opponent in school history.

Quarterback Trevor Lawrence was named the Quarterback of the Week. Against Boston College, he went 16/19 for 275 yards and three passing touchdowns with no interceptions. He started the game completing his first nine passes.

He recorded a career-high 257.9 passer rating in the contest and extended his streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 18. He threw three touchdown passes for a third consecutive game, becoming the first Clemson quarterback to do so since Tajh Boyd in 2013.
