Clemson freshman defensive end and former Daniel High star Shaq Lawson has been honored as a second-team Freshman All-American by College Football News.

Lawson played in all 12 games for the Tigers behind starting defensive ends Corey Crawford and Vic Beasley and logged 319 snaps. He made 32 tackles, including nine for a loss of yardage, and had three sacks and nine quarterback pressures.

Named to CFN's first team as defensive ends were Ohio State's Joey Bosa, Alabama's A'Shawn Robinson and UCLA's Eddie Vanderdoes. Joining Lawson on the second team were defensive ends Carl Lawson of Auburn, Chris Jones of Mississippi State, and Avery Moss of Nebraska.

Former Clemson recruiting targets named to the first defensive team include defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche of Ole Miss and cornerbacks Kendall Fuller of Virginia Tech and Vernon Hargreaves of Florida.

This is really a good award for one of the young Tigers and home grown to boot. Very nice for a kid that I am sure worked very hard to achieve this.
