Cisco also added nine pass breakups, which makes his 16 passes defended the second-best in the FBS by a freshman, and it also sets a new program record at SU.Cisco also earned one vote for ACC Rookie of the Year, which went to Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence. Cisco is SU’s first ACC individual award winner since Syracuse joined the conference in 2013 and the first individual recipient of a major conference award since Dwight Freeney shared Big East Defensive Player of the Year honors with Miami’s Ed Reed in 2001.
