Miami Hurricanes S Jaquan Johnson named ACC Defensive Back of the Week

A worthy award for The Franchise.

Miami Athletics

After a huge game against Virginia Tech, Miami Hurricanes S Jaquan Johnson was named ACC Defensive Back of the Week on Monday.

Here’s a bit of narrative from the ACC’s official website on this honor:

Johnson delivered another standout performance in the secondary to help key a dominant defensive effort as the Hurricanes topped visiting Virginia Tech, 28-10, in a crucial Coastal Division matchup. Johnson tied for the Miami lead with seven tackles (six solo) and wore the team’s “turnover chain” twice – once for a forced fumble in the second quarter and another for an interception in the third quarter. Johnson, who helped Miami hold Virginia Tech to just 299 total yards of offense, has started every game this season at safety and leads all Hurricanes with 58 total tackles (36 solo).

This should come as no surprise to anyone who watched Saturday’s game. Johnson was everywhere, and made play after play to help his team win. Johnson was also our #1 star from the game, based on the performance that earned him today’s accolade.

Just another day for The Franchise. Congratulations, Jaquan!
