The Connect is Talmbout Ray Lewis

 

Leonard Hankerson and Marcus Forston are named ACC Players of the Week. Hey, remember when message boards thought Hank should be stripped of his scholarship? I do. Message boards are stupid.

OFFENSIVE BACK – Leonard Hankerson, Miami, WR, Sr., 6-3, 205, Fort Lauderdale, Fla. (St. Thomas Aquinas) Hankerson had a career day for the Hurricanes against Clemson, hauling in seven receptions for a career-high 147 yards. With a 22-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter, he extended his streak to 17-straight games with a reception. Hankerson hauled in three touchdown catches in the first half – a seven-yard strike, a 22-yarder and a career-long 65-yard TD in the second quarter. It was Hankerson’s second career multi-touchdown game. Hankerson also moved into a tie for sixth place all-time in career touchdown receptions. He now has 15 career touchdown receptions tying Brian Blades (1984-87). Hankerson’s three-receiving touchdowns in the first half marked the first time since 1998 that a ‘Cane has had three touchdown receptions in a game. Santana Moss had three against Rutgers on Oct. 3, 1998.

DEFENSIVE LINEMAN – Marcus Forston, Miami, DL, So., 6-3, 305, Miami, Fla. (Northwestern) Forston registered three tackles, a half sack, a tackle for a loss and one interception in Miami’s win at Clemson. He also had a quarterback hurry. His first career interception led Miami to its go-ahead touchdown to make the score 20-14. Forston also helped lead a Hurricane defense that limited Clemson to just seven points in the second half.

Bonus bragging rights that are really Things As They Should Be: Miami has had an ACC Player of Week every week this season: Miller (Rookie), Benjamin (Specialist), Franklin (O-Line), and Hankerson (two times).
