CLEMSON, SC — Travis Etienne continues to rack up awards for his performance as Clemson's star running back.

On Thursday, the Jennings High alumnus was named the 2019 Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year. This is the second straight year Etienne has won the award. The ACC further honored Etienne by naming him their offensive player of the year.

On top of all of this, Etienne is one of three finalists for the Doak Walker Award, which is presented to college football's best running back.

Last week, Etienne broke the ACC's all-time career touchdown record, notching his 57th score in his three-year career.

The redshirt junior has one year of eligibility remaining. He's projected as a first-round pick in April's NFL Draft if he turns professional.
