has been named the Lott IMPACT Player of the Week.
The 6-3, 240-pound Shuey from Charlotte, North Carolina had 11 tackles and a fumble recovery in as 26-14 win over North Carolina State. The victory kept the No. 3 ranked Tigers undefeated at 3-0.

In recognition of Shuey’s performance, the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation, sponsors of the Lott IMPACT Trophy, will make a $1,000 donation to the general scholarship fund at Clemson.

Shuey is a two-time ACC Academic Honor Roll member who has graduated with a degree in management. He didn’t become a starter until mid-way through his third season (2012) at Clemson. “He’s willed himself into the player he is now,” says defensive coordinator Brent Venables. “I’ve never had to ask him
to do something twice.”

Named after Pro Football Hall of Fame member, Ronnie Lott, The Lott Trophy is awarded to college football’s Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year. Founded in 2004 by The Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation, The Lott Trophy is the first and only college football award to equally recognize athletic performance and the personal character attributes of the player. The Lott Trophy is given to the player who exhibits the same characteristics Lott embodied during his distinguished career: Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity. Voters for the award include selected members of the national media, previous finalists, the Board of Directors of the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation and a distinguished group of former college football head coaches. To date, the Foundation has donated more than $1 million to various charities throughout the country. The 10th annual Lott Trophy dinner will be held Dec. 8th at The Pacific Club in Newport Beach, California.
