Clelin Ferrell wins Ted Hendricks Award

CHICAGO, ILL. – Ted Hendricks and the Ted Hendricks Foundation are proud to announce that the recipient of the 2018 Ted Hendricks Award is Clelin Ferrell of Clemson University. Final-round voting concluded Dec. 5 and Ferrell was the recipient of exactly 50 percent of our selection committee’s responses. This is the 17th season for the Hendricks Award, presented each year to the top defensive end in the nation.

Ferrell has led Clemson with 17 tackles for loss (second in ACC) and 10.5 sacks (ACC-best), totaling 45 tackles and 13 QB pressures.

The award’s namesake spoke to each of his finalists over the past few days and expressed his pride in being associated with this group of young men. When it came time to announce his 2018 recipient, Ted Hendricks had the following to say.

“All four of our finalists were capable of winning the award this year. As our selection committee’s choice, Clelin Ferrell is an exceptional role model – on and off the field. It was great to see him return to Clemson this season and join us as a finalist for the second consecutive year! We are proud to add him to our list as the 17th recipient of the Ted Hendricks Award.”

Ferrell is a second Tiger to earn the honor, joining the 2010 effort from Da'Quan Bowers.
