Richardson ACC OL of the Week Again
Posted Nov 5, 2007
Against Duke on Saturday, Richardson graded over 90 percent for the second week in a row.
After leading Florida State to an impressive 27-17 upset win over No. 2 Boston College Saturday night, Seminole quarterback Drew Weatherford has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Back of the Week.
Also taking home honors this week on the offensive side of the ball is Clemson’s Barry Richardson, who earned league Offensive Lineman of the Week recognition for the second week in a row.
On defense, Virginia’s Chris Long was selected as Defensive Lineman of the Week for his play in the Cavs’ win over No. 21 Wake Forest, and North Carolina’s Trimane Goddard was chosen as the conference’s Defensive Back of the Week after leading the Tar Heels with 10 tackles and an interception in a 16-13 win over Maryland.
NC State’s Steven Hauschka, who provided the winning points for the Wolfpack in a 19-16 win over Miami with a 42-yard field goal in overtime, was voted this week’s Specialist of the Week, while the Seminoles’ Rodney Hudson, a guard along the FSU offensive line, was recognized as the league’s top rookie performer for his play against the stout Eagles’ defensive line this weekend.
OFFENSIVE BACK—Drew Weatherford. In Saturday’s night’s nationally-televised game at Boston College, Weatherford had a career night, leading the Seminoles to their first-ever road win over a team ranked No. 2 in the nation. For the night, he was 29-of-45 for 354 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions. The 354 yards were the second-most Weatherford has thrown for in his career.
OFFENSIVE LINEMAN—Barry Richardson. Against Duke on Saturday, Richardson graded over 90 percent for the second week in a row. In the 47-10 win, he played 45 snaps, recording 8.5 knockdown blocks and allowed zero sacks as the Tigers piled up more than 150 yards on the ground.
DEFENSIVE LINEMAN—Chris Long, Virginia. Long was a disruptive force against No. 21 Wake Forest on Saturday, registering 10 total tackles, including two for loss, a sack and three quarterback pressures. With Long on the edge, the Virginia defense held the Demon Deacons to just 2.8 yards per rush and 315 total yards of offense in the 17-16 Cavalier victory.
DEFENSIVE BACK—Trimane Goddard, North Carolina. On Saturday, Goddard led a North Carolina defense that held a potent Maryland ground attack to just 93 yards and 2.8 yards per carry. He recorded 10 total tackles, including eight solo stops, and had one pass break up and one interception as the Tar Heels defeated the Terrapins 16-13.
SPECIALIST—Steven Hauschka, NC State. All of Hauschka’s career-high four field goals came in the fourth quarter or overtime of NC State’s 19-16 win over Miami on Saturday. His 47-yarder with 6:55 to play gave the Wolfpack its first lead of the day, and his 42-yarder in overtime sealed the win for NC State. Hauschka has now hit 14-of-15 field goals this season, and leads the ACC with a 93.3 field goal percentage.
ROOKIE—Rodney Hudson, Florida State. Hudson played in all 81 snaps for the Florida State offense in the Seminoles’ 27-17 upset win at No. 2 Boston College Saturday night, and was the only offensive lineman to grade out above 80 percent. He recorded a team-high four knockdown blocks as the Florida State offense rushed for the second-most yards of any BC opponent this year and gave up zero sacks to the aggressive Boston College front seven.
