Clowney wins Hendricks Award

CHICAGO (AP) — South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney has won the 2012 Ted Hendricks Award, becoming the first sophomore chosen as the nation's top defensive end.

Clowney set a school record for sacks (13), tackles for loss in a season (21 1-2) and sacks in a single game (4 1-2 vs Clemson). He was chosen for the All-Southeastern Conference team earlier this week.

The other finalists were Morgan Breslin from Southern California, Tank Carradine and Bjoern Werner from Florida State, Sam Montgomery from LSU and Damontre Moore from Texas A&M.
