Clemson defensive end Andre Branch has been named as a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Award, which is presented every year to the best defensive end in college football.
Branch leads the ACC with 10.5 sacks and 16 tackles for loss. He has also tallied 72 tackles on the year. Branch was a first-team All-ACC selection this season.
Branch is hoping to become the second Tiger to win the award in the past two seasons. Da’Quan Bowers took home the honor last year.
The winner will be announced on December 7th.
