has been named the Chuck Bednarik National Defensive Player of the Week for his performance at Florida State this past Saturday evening. Anthony is the first Clemson player to win the award that is presented by the Maxwell Club of Philadelphia.

Anthony was Clemson’s top tackler with eight stops, all of them individual tackles. He had two tackles for loss, including a sack, two passes broken up and two more quarterback pressures that led to incompletions in his 66 plays of action.
