    [2020] ACC Season Awards and All-Conference Team

    Recommended Posts



    Seasonal Awards

    OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: :louisville: DeSean Dockery, RB, Louisville Cardinals: 299 carries for 1,645 yards (5.50 YPC), 24 TDs, 0 fumbles; 3 receptions for 41 yards (13.67 YPR), 1 TD

    In a season that saw a Heisman-level receiver and two quarterbacks playing at another level, it was DeSean Dockery that swept aside the conference in his debut season. The JuCo transfer finished second nationally in rushing yards, putting up 100+ yards in all but one game this season. Dockery thrived in the national spotlight, inserting himself in the Heisman discussion while leading Louisville to their best finish ever in the ACC.


    DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: :clemson: Glenn Thorpe, DE, Clemson Tigers: 34 tackles, 9.5 sacks, 1 INT

    It was a toss-up between Thorpe and UNC defensive end Josiah Harden, but Thorpe's play stood out on a solid Clemson defense. The freshman defensive end finished second in the conference in sacks, leading a very dominant Clemson front seven en route to a second-consecutive conference championship game appearance.


    OFFENSIVE FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR: :duke: Bryce Thompson, QB, Duke Blue Devils: 227/370 (61.35%), 2,704 yards, 21 TDs, 9 INTs; 49 carries for 150 yards (3.06 YPC), 9 TDs

    Duke's meteoric rise this season came in large part to their freshman duo of running back Christian Collins and quarterback Bryce Thompson. Thompson started as last year's starting quarterback, Kyle Jefferson, was benched, and now Thompson might have secured that starting role after having arguably the best season ever for a Duke quarterback, leading the Blue Devils to a school-record 9 wins and a 3rd-place finish in a top-heavy Coastal division.


    DEFENSIVE FRESHMAN OF THE YEAR: :clemson: Glenn Thorpe, DE, Clemson Tigers: 34 tackles, 9.5 sacks, 1 INT

    The only surprise here is that Thorpe wasn't the unanimous selection, with Florida State's Jack Ramsey and Virginia's Soldier Brooks receiving a vote each. The Tigers have a very solid player that should become a household name in college football. 


    COACH OF THE YEAR: :uva: npklemm, Virginia Cavaliers: 12-1 record (school record), first-ever division title, first-ever conference title, first-ever playoff appearance

    Props to Jumbo of Pittsburgh and Broletariat of Louisville for special seasons, but it's no surprise that npklemm takes this prestigious award. Virginia has lived in the shadow of the ACC giants, but behind an efficient offense and a resilient defense, the Cavaliers were arguably a defensive stop away against Louisville from competing a perfect season to go along with their first division and conference titles.
