Clemson institutes Brian Dawkins Lifetime Achievement Award

Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney will present the first Brian Dawkins Clemson Lifetime Achievement Award to Brian Dawkins at the team’s Football Banquet on Saturday evening. Dawkins recently retired from the NFL after 16 years with the Philadelphia Eagles and the Denver Broncos. He was a nine-time Pro Bowl selection and played 224 games overall. He was a three-time All-ACC selection at Clemson between 1992-95 and was an AP All-American as a senior in 1995 when he led the ACC in interceptions.  The award will be presented annually to a former Clemson player who has been out of school for at least 10 years. A committee will select each November. The player will be honored at the banquet in January and at a football game the following fall.
