Two Tiger Football Players Named ACC Player of the Week

Nov. 3, 2008

Clemson had two ACC Player of the Week selections for its victory over Boston College. Thomas Austin was named the offensive lineman of the week. Spiller gained 242 all-purpose yards, including 105 receiving and had four plays of 33 yards or more. The 105 receiving yards tied a Clemson record for a running back in one game. Austin graded 82 percent and had give knockdowns while playing two different positions. He played all 69 snaps in the game.

It was the third time Austin has been named ACC Player of the Week in his career. He was named offensive lineman of the week for his performance against Central Michigan last year and for his efforts this year against NC State. It was the first time Spiller has won offensive back of the week honors. He was a three-time rookie of the week selection in 2006.
