Clemson's Bowers named All-American

CLEMSON, SC (WIS) - Clemson defensive end Da'Quan Bowers has been unanimously named a first-team All-American. Bowers is just the fourth player in Clemson history to be named a unanimous first-team All-American, and the first junior to do it.

Bowers was named an All-American by Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association, Sporting News, the Walter Camp Foundation and the Football Writers Association.  These are the five major All-America teams recognized by the NCAA when it selects its consensus and unanimous All-America teams.

Bowers has also been named a first-team All-American by CBS Sportsline, Rivals.com, Scout.com, Si.com, College Football News, and Phil Steele.

Bowers joins Terry Kinard (1982), Gaines Adams (2006) and C.J. Spiller (2009) as unanimous first-team All-Americans in Clemson history.

Bowers leads the nation in sacks with 15.5 and is second in tackles for loss with 25.  His sack total is second in Clemson history for one season, best among defensive linemen, and is the most by an ACC player since 1999 when Keith Adams had a Clemson record 16 sacks.  He had a streak of nine consecutive games with a sack, a school record.  He is second on the team in tackles with 67.

Bowers and the Tigers will meet South Florida in the Meineke Car Care Bowl in Charlotte at noon on December 31.
