Dec. 10, 2010

CLEMSON, SC – Clemson defensive end Da’Quan Bowers has been named a first-team All-American by the Walter Camp Foundation and CBS Sports. Bowers has been named a first team All-American by every team announced so far this year.

Earlier this week the Clemson junior won the Nagurski Award as the top defensive player in college football and the Hendricks Award, as the top defensive end in the nation.

Bowers leads the nation in sacks with 15.5 and is second in tackles for loss with 25. His sack total is second in Clemson history for one season, best among defensive linemen and is the most by an ACC player since 1999 when Keith Adams had a Clemson record 16 sacks.

Bowers’ tackle for loss total is the most by a Clemson defensive lineman since 1991 when Rob Bodine had 27. Bowers had a streak of nine straight games with a sack during this season, the longest streak in Clemson history.

Last week, Bowers was named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year.
