This is the 3rd Frosh AA nod for WR Ahmmon Richards, the 2nd for LB Quarterman, and the 1st for DE Joseph Jackson. Richards and Quarterman were named to 1st team, while Jackson named to 2nd team by CampusInsiders. LB Michael Pinckney earned Honorable Mention honors.
More awards for the talented duo of Ahmmon Richards, and Shaq Quarterman, who were named 247sports True Freshman All-Americans on Tuesday afternoon.
1st team honors for K Michael Badgley, and 2nd team honors for P Justin Vogel, CB Corn Elder, and RB Mark Walton. Curious, however, that Danny Isidora -- a 1st team All-ACC pick by ESPN, wasn't even mentioned. In any event, congrats to those who were named. Well done!
Congratulations to Isidora on his recognition. It's still CRAZY TO ME that we only got 1 player on All-ACC, but hey......
Academic achievement at the top of the nation. Only at #TheU (and Northwestern and Stanford but you got my point). Well earned, Canes!
Canes K Michael Badgley was the national kicker of the week. OL Danny Isidora, DL RJ McIntosh, LB Zach McCloud and S Jamal Carter were tops at their positions in the ACC this week. NOTICE HOW I DIDN'T MENTION DAVID NJOKU BECAUSE HE GOT SNUBBED BY PFF THIS WEEK JUST LIKE HE DID FOR ALL-ACC AND THE MACKEY AWARD
TOOK YOU LONG ENOUGH, PFF!!!!!! But finally, after breaking Michael Irvin's freshman receiving yardage record, Canes WR Ahmmon Richards bursts onto the scene as PFF's #7 freshman in College Football.
Canes alum Greg Olsen sits atop the list at #1 and is the only TE graded out over 90 by Pro Football Focus. That'll work. Oh, and Jimmy Graham is 4th. Tight End U, indeed.
With a solid performance in Green Bay's week 10 game, ProCanes CB LaDarius Gunter graded out as the 2nd best CB in the NFL. Out of all of them. Yeah, that's a great day's work, if you ask me. Congrats, LaDarius! Keep it up (but not when you play the Lions, please and thank you).
No surprise here, but TEs Jimmy Graham and Greg Olsen have 3 of the top 10 individual game performances of the 2016 season to this point. That is more than FSU, UF, Southern Cal, Michigan, Ohio State, and Alabama alums have COMBINED.
