Florida State linebacker Buster Davis picked up two major honors this past week. The ACC's leading tackler was named a Rotary Lombardi Award semifinalist and a mid-season All-American by SI.com. Of the 12 players named to the Lombardi list, Davis is one of only two players from the ACC and one of just three linebackers. Davis and Georgia Tech's Philip Wheeler are the only two ACC defensive players to be named a mid-season All-American by SI.com but two of four total ACC players on the list.
The Daytona Beach, FL standout leads the ACC in total tackles, solo tackles and tackles per game. He has been named an FWAA/Bronko Nagurski Defensive Player of the Week and a two-time ACC Player of the Week this season already.
