ACC 2018 Season Awards and All-Conference Team

Athlon hands out its awards from the 2018 season

Clemson dominated the ACC once again in 2018, as coach Dabo Swinney’s team finished the regular season at 13-0 and earned a No. 2 ranking for the College Football Playoff. The Tigers boasted some of the nation’s top talent, including running back Travis Etienne, defensive linemen Christian Wilkins and Clelin Ferrell and rising star quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Clemson features 12 selections on Athlon’s 2018 All-ACC squad, which is the most of any team in the conference. Syracuse’s Dino Babers edges Swinney for coach of the year honors by Athlon, and the Orange also feature a handful of all-conference selections, including quarterback Eric Dungey and safety Andre Cisco.
