Clowney wows in landmark week

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - It was quite a week for South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney - and the football season is still six weeks away.

The Gamecocks' All-American defensive end picked up an ESPY award for his helmet-popping play, entertained hundreds at Southeastern Conference media days, issued a few friendly challenges to rivals and got to meet LeBron James.

"Yeah, that was something," Clowney said, still flying high after departing the plane from his coast-to-coast adventures.

Clowney accepted the trophy for best play from last year. His hit on Michigan's Vincent Smith blew loose the running back's helmet and the ball, allowing Clowney to recover it easily in South Carolina's Outback Bowl victory.

Earlier in the week, the 6-foot-6, 274-pound Clowney promised more disruption once the games start in his final college season.
