DURHAM, N.C. – Duke redshirt freshman quarterback Daniel Jones and junior return specialist Shaun Wilson claimed ACC Player of the Week honors following the Blue Devils’ 38-35 win at Notre Dame this past Saturday.
Jones, a 6-5, 210-pound native of Charlotte, N.C., earned ACC Rookie of the Week accolades after completing 24-of-32 (.750) passes for 290 yards with three touchdowns and one interception while rushing for an additional 19 yards on five attempts against the Fighting Irish. He engineered Duke’s game-winning 10-play, 44-yard drive, which culminated in AJ Reed’s 19-yard field goal with 1:24 remaining in the game.
