Two Clemson Football players named to their respective Butkus Award finalist list
Two members of the Clemson family have been named finalists for the Butkus Award, given annually to the most outstanding linebackers in the nation.
Jeremiah Trotter, Jr. has been named a finalist for the college Butkus Award.
Clemson Football 2024 commit Sammy Brown has been named a finalist for the high school Butkus Award for 2023.
Fun fact shared by Tiger Illustrated on X: today is the 30th anniversary of Clemson parting ways with Ken Hatfield.
I was a freshman during Hatfield’s final season. I know it was odd at the time to let a coach go after an 8-3 season, but I can attest that it was the most boring 8-3 football I ever saw until Paul Johnson got to Georgia Tech.
