ACC Players of the Week

Wake Forest redshirt-freshman running back Josh Harris and North Carolina junior wide receiver Dwight Jones headline a list of six players recognized as the Atlantic Coast Conference Football Players of the Week, announced Monday by the ACC. Harris, in his first career start, ran for 241 yards, the fifth-best mark by an ACC freshman. He added two scores, including an 87-yard run, which was the longest by a Demon Deacon since 1968. Jones set career bests in receptions, yards and touchdowns as the Tar Heels topped Virginia 44-10, earning their first win in Charlottesville since 1981. He racked up 119 receiving yards in the first quarter en route to 198 for the game.

Clemson’s Da’Quan Bowers, the defensive lineman of the week, who leads the nation in quarterback sacks and tackles for loss, is joined by teammate Andre Ellington, the specialist of the week, giving the Tigers two honorees. Miami also garnered two selections as Brandon Washington was tabbed the offensive lineman of the week and fellow Hurricane Vaughn Telemaque was recognized as the defensive back of the week.
