Leroy Hill Named ACC Player of the Week


by -

Offensive Back

Wake Forest junior quarterback Cory Randolph was 16-for-21 passing for 344 yards

and two touchdowns, while carrying the ball 16 times for 107 yards and a

touchdown. Both passing and rushing totals were career-highs for Randolph. The

Lake City, Fla., native became the first Wake Forest player to ever throw for

300+ yards and rush for 100+ yards in the same game.


Offensive Lineman

Virginia senior guard Elton Brown turned in his highest grade in two years

versus North Carolina. The Hampton, Va., senior recorded eight knockdown blocks

and for the second straight week, helped the Cavalier line to no quarterback

sacks or pressures. Virginia rushed for 299 yards, its highest single-game total

in six years, while the 549 yards of total offense are the most in five years.



Defensive Lineman

Clemson senior inside linebacker Leroy Hill had 14 tackles, including ten first

hits and four assists in Clemson’s loss to Georgia Tech. Hill tallied four

tackles for loss, including two quarterback sacks for a total of 27 yards. The

Haddock, Ga., native was Clemson’s highest rated player in the coaches’ film

grade on the defensive side of the ball.


Defensive Back

Miami senior Antrel Rolle recorded six tackles, including three tackles for loss

in the Hurricanes’ overtime victory over Florida State. In addition, the

cornerback from Homestead, Fla., added one sack. Rolle had three tackles behind

the line of scrimmage for a loss of 31 yards and one sack for a loss of 11

yards.


Specialist

Virginia specialist Marquis Weeks returned a kickoff for 100 yards in the

second-half of Virginia’s win over North Carolina. In the process, he tied the

all-time NCAA record. It also marked the second time in his career that he

returned a kick 100 yards for a touchdown. The senior from Berwyn, Pa., now

shares the school record for most career kickoff returns for a touchdown with

two. Overall, he returned three kickoffs for 132 yards, while the team’s 238

return yards broke the school record of 228 set in 1951 against Washington &

Lee.


Rookie

Georgia Tech wide receiver Calvin Johnson caught three touchdown passes,

including two in the final two minutes to lift Georgia Tech to a 28-24 win at

Clemson. With Tech trailing 24-14, the Tyrone, Ga., native hauled in two passes

from QB Reggie Ball, the first from eight yards out with 1:50 left and then the

game-winner from 11 yards out with just 11 seconds remaining. He became one of

just six Tech players (and the only freshman) to catch three or more touchdown

passes in a game.
