2017 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Winner Announced at Gala Banquet Presented by ACN, Inc.

Charlotte, N.C. (December 13, 2017) – Hard work pays off – especially for the Wolfpack’s senior defensive end Bradley Chubb. On Saturday, December 4, the Football Writers Association of America and the Charlotte Touchdown Club named the 6-foot-4, 275-pound gladiator the 2017 Bronko Nagurski Trophy winner at the gala banquet in Charlotte. The event was viewed by the masses during the national broadcast presented by ACN on December 7.

Given to the NCAA’s top defensive player, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy is an award of high honor and prestige – and many of its recipients have the accolades to prove it. “It’s a little surreal moment just knowing the people who won this award in the past, but it’s definitely an honor,” Chubb said.

With 23 ½ tackles for loss, Chubb reigns as the FBS leader this season. He played 87 percent of the snaps against conference competitors this season and is a three-time ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week. Chubb set North Carolina State University career records for tackles (60) and sacks (26) and is a finalist for the Bednarik and Hendricks Awards. In addition to this, he has also been named the ACC’s 2017 Defensive Player of the Year.

“This is a proud moment for me as a head coach, for our entire team and for NC State University,” said NC State head coach Dave Doeren. “Bradley is everything that’s right about college football and it’s so great to see his hard work and dedication be rewarded on a national stage.”

While Wolfpack linebacker Levar Fisher was a finalist in 2000, Bradley Chubb makes history as the first of North Carolina State to actually win the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. Bradley won the Bronko Nagurski Trophy over Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, Iowa middle linebacker Josey Jewell, Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver and Georgia outside linebacker Roquan Smith. This dynamic student athlete is now among the ranks of other esteemed defensive players such as Jonathan Allen of Alabama, Temple’s Tyler Matakevich and Arizona’s Scooby Wright III.

“We are very proud to support the Charlotte Touchdown Club,” said ACN President and Co-Founder Greg Provenzano. “It is such an honor and privilege to continue on as the presenting sponsor of the Bronko Nagurski Awards Banquet and an organization that not only celebrates excellence in college football, but one that supports area athletics for middle and high schools students. Like Bradley Chubb and the four trophy finalists, ACN employees embody the qualities of hard work, determination and dedication to excellence.”

 The FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club also presented the Bronko Nagurski Legends Award by Florida East Coast Railway. This year’s recipient was Notre Dame’s Ross Browner, a member of the College Football Hall of Fame.
