Four Miami Hurricane alum played yesterday in the NFL conference championship games! Congrats.
Congrats to Phillip Dorsett for making it to the Super Bowl! He is the sole Canes alum to accomplish this feet. After enduring numerous sub par seasons in college, Phillip is one win away from NFL greatness. Plus, Phillip hauled in a game changing catch in the AFC conference championship game.
Phillip has had a rocky road at New England. But by far that was perhaps the biggest catch in his football career even going back to high school.
There were three other Canes in action yesterday.
Stacy Coley wasn’t active.
Brandon Linder almost scored a perfect grade against Pitt.

He carried that intensity over to New England and was seen making plays and dancing .
Calais Campbell also played. He produced 3 tackles.
Finally, Allen Hurns lead the Jags in receptions and yardage: 6 catches for 80 yards.

The Jags were so close but couldn’t get over that last hump. But they achieved an amazing season. Beat Pitt twice. No longer the laughing stock of Florida football. They will be back next year.
