UVA’s Ian Frye, Anthony Harris earn ACC player of the week honors

uva-logo-new2UVA placekicker Ian Frye was named ACC Specialist of the Week and strong safety Anthony Harris was named ACC Defensive Back of the Week for games played through Sept. 13.

Frye (Bristol, Va.) made all three of his field goal attempts, including the game-winner, in Virginia’s win over Louisville. Frye’s game-winning kick was a 42-yarder with 3:42 to play and is the third longest game winner in UVa program history. Earlier in the game he converted field goals from 35 and 47 yards. His 47-yarder was the second longest by an ACC player this season. Frye also converted two PAT attempts.

Harris (Chesterfield, Va.) had eight tackles and one interception in Virginia’s 23-21 upset of No. 21 Louisville. His interception set up UVa’s first touchdown of the game. The UVa defense limited Louisville to just 282 yards of total offense as the Cavaliers picked up the win in their conference opener.

The award is the second career honor for Harris, who last was named the ACC Defensive Back of the Week after the 2013 BYU game.

Frye is the first UVa placekicker to earn ACC Specialist of the Week honors since Robert Randolph beat Indiana in 2011 with a game-winning field goal.
