Clemson has a league high 16 players named to the conference's three teams

Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence was named the ACC’s First-Team quarterback, while running back Travis Etienne is one of the two first-team running backs, the league announced Tuesday.

The Tigers placed a total of 16 players on the first, second and third teams. Pitt and Wake Forest followed with eight selections each, while Boston College and North Carolina each filled seven spots.

A voting panel of 46 media members and the league’s 14 head coaches cast ballots for the 2019 All-ACC Football Teams, with three points awarded for each first-team vote, two points for each second-team vote and one point for each third-team selection.

Etienne, who has rushed for 1,386 yards this season and became the ACC career leader in touchdowns scored with 57, led the balloting with 176 total points. Tigers teammate Isaiah Simmons led all defensive players with 157 points at one of the first-team linebacker spots. NCAA record-setting kicker Nick Sciba of Wake Forest and Virginia kick returner Joe Reed each amassed 156 points to earn spots as first-team specialists.

Other Tigers joining Lawrence and Etienne on the first-team offense was wide receiver Tee Higgins. On the offensive line, Tremayne Anchrum is listed as a first-team tackle, while John Simpson is a first-team guard.

On defense, Simmons led the way as a first-team All-ACC linebacker. Joining Simmons on the defensive side is cornerback A.J. Terrell and safety Tanner Muse.

On the All-ACC second-team, Clemson right guard Gage Cervenka and center Sean Pollard made the list on offense, while freshman defensive tackle Tyler Davis and cornerback Derion Kendrick were named to the second-team defense.

On the third team, Tigers’ left tackle Jackson Carman made the list on offense, while defensive end Xavier Thomas, defensive tackle Nyles Pinckney and safety K’Von Wallace made the all-star team as well.
