The Atlantic Coast Conference announced today that defensive end Myles Murphy has earned ACC Co-Defensive Lineman of the Week honors for his performance in Clemson’s 30-20 win against Florida State on Saturday. Murphy will share this week’s honor with Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson II.

Against Florida State, Murphy recorded five tackles (three for loss) including a career-high-tying 2.0 sacks after review, matching his 2.0 sacks in his collegiate debut at Wake Forest in 2020. He led Clemson as the Tigers posted a season-high 6.0 sacks. Murphy also blocked a Florida State PAT, Clemson’s first blocked placekick since Bryan Bresee blocked a field goal attempt at Wake Forest in the 2020 season opener and Clemson’s first blocked PAT since Christian Wilkins blocked a Louisville PAT on Nov. 3, 2018.
