Artavis Scott, Football, Freshman, Oldsmar, Fla.
Scott was named the ACC Receiver of the Week for his record-breaking performance against South Carolina State last Saturday. Scott had six catches for 164 yards and two touchdowns in the Tigers 73-7 win over S.C. State. The 164 yards established the Clemson freshman single game record for receiving yards. It broke the record of 155 set by Sammy Watkins against Auburn in 2011.
Scott joins Charlie Whitehurst (2002 vs. Duke), James Davis (2005 vs. South Carolina) and Sammy Watkins (2011 vs. Auburn, Florida State and Maryland) as Tiger freshmen who were honored for ACC weekly awards other than Rookie of the Week in the last 15 years.
The Tigers improved to 1-1 with the win and travel to Tallahassee to play top-ranked Florida State on Sept. 20.
