For the third time in five weeks, Duke's Jamison Crowder has earned ACC Player of the Week honors. Crowder was joined this week by safety Jeremy Cash, who earned weekly honors for the first time in his career.
Crowder, a junior, was named the league's receiver of the week after catching 7 passes for 149 yards (an average of 21.3 yards per reception) and a touchdown in Duke's 38-31 win against Troy. Six of his seven catches produced Duke first downs. Previously, he was twice named the ACC Specialist of the Week after punt return touchdowns against N.C. Central and Pittsburgh.
Cash, a redshirt sophomore, recorded 14 tackles against the Trojans, including 2.5 tackles for loss, both career-highs. He also reeled in his first career interception on the final play of the game. Cash leads the ACC in both tackles (51) and tackles per game (10.2).
