Skinner isn't the only remnant from Wake's surprise 2006 Orange Bowl team, but of the 14 remaining from that roster he's logged the most playing time. After taking snaps during the most successful three-year period in Demon Deacons' history (starting 26 of their 28 wins), he's become the team's unquestioned leader. What's more, in his final season Skinner has the chance to cap that recent success by going down as the most accurate passer in ACC history. The 6-foot-1, 205-pounder enters 2009 with a .673 completion percentage (639-of-949), topping the career .670 record Virginia's Matt Schaub set. That rate puts Skinner in line with the last two Heisman Trophy winners (Sam Bradford boasts a .685 career percentage, while Tim Tebow sits at .657) while his 25 interceptions in 949 attempts are the fewest among all active players with at least 700 career passes. His 26-11 record as a starter gives him the second highest wins total (along with South Florida's Matt Grothe) among active players behind Texas' Colt McCoy (32).
