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).
