Wake Forest football's Sage Surratt has once again been named the ACC Receiver of the Week for his role in the Deacs’ win over Florida State Saturday night. This marks the fourth time in the eight weeks the award has been given this season that Surratt has been the recipient.
Kicker Nick Sciba was also named as the ACC’s Co-Specialist of the Week, along with Georgia Tech’s Pressley Harvin III.
The ACC Receiver of the Week Award might as well be renamed The Sage Surratt Award, as Surratt literally has half of the awards so far this season.
Surratt had 7 receptions for 170 yards, with an average of 24.3 yards per catch, and a long of 51 yards.
Sciba played a huge part in the Deacs winning the game, as he went 5-5 on field goal attempts and made his only extra point attempt of the game. The offense got the ball into the redzone six times, but was only able to score a touchdown once. Sciba took care of things though, and added to his record-breaking streak of consecutive makes.
On the season, Surratt now has 53 receptions for 881 yards and 9 touchdowns. Yet somehow he is not on the Heisman watch list, in spite of the fact that receivers with much less impressive stats than his are.
So I’m going to go ahead and start the #WhyNotSage campaign.
Congrats to both Sage and Nick on their awards.
