The votes are in, and this week’s Deac of the Week is RS Junior safety Cameron Glenn. Congratulations!
Glenn earned almost half of the votes cast, finishing with 46%. The remaining votes were split virtually evenly between Essang Bassey (who had a pick 6 and was named ACC defensive back of the week) and Jessie Bates III (who had an INT so close to a pick 6 that we should call it a pick 5, and who also led the team in tackles). You could make good arguments for any of the three earning DOTW honors. That said, Glenn had a monster game.
- 1 fumble forced
- 1 fumble recovered
- 1 interception
- 2 pass breakups
- 7 total tackles (T-2nd), 4 solo (T-3rd)
While his performance was good enough to earn him the HIGHLY-coveted DOTW award, Wake fans weren’t the only ones who noticed. He also graded out as PFF’s top college safety this week, earning him a spot on their national team of the week.

Let’s wrap up with some highlights from Cameron Glenn’s DOTW performance. We’ll have another vote up after the Utah State game. Go Deacs!
