TCI Most Improved Award

By

With the regular season in the books, TheClemsonInsider.com continues  to hand out this year’s TCI awards.  Tonight we announce this year’s winner of the TCI Most Improved Award.

There were a number of candidates on both sides of the ball for the award this year, but this year’s winner of the TCI Most Improved Award is red-shirt sophomore Xavier Brewer.

By the end of the season Brewer had earned a starting position at corner.  While another former Bartrom Trail standout Kyle Parker received lots of attention in 2010, Xavier quietly showed impressive improvement throughout the season.

Brewer finished the regular season playing 605 snaps, more than Byron Maxwell.  Xavier was tied for eighth on the team in tackles with 49.  He was seventh on the team in tackles for loss with 4.5 for 24 yards.  Brewer was second on the team in passes broken up with eight, trailing only Marcus Gilchrist with ten.  Xavier was also tied for second on the team in interceptions with two, including one he returned for a touchdown.

Xavier’s emergence at corner should pay huge dividends in 2011 with the departure of Gilchrist and Maxwell. 

Others that received consideration for the TCI Most Improved included Jaron Brown, Landon Walker, Jonathan Meeks and Corico Hawkins.

Congratulations to this year’s winner Xavier Brewer!
