Players of the Week

Following the season opener victory over Florida State the coaching staff awarded certain individuals with player of the week awards on offense, defense, special teams, and scout team. Seven players earned player of the week honors this week.


WR Sinorice Moss

Moss had the game-tying touchdown with 30 seconds left in regulation capping off a four-catch 112-yard performance. He also recorded a reception over 60 yards that set up the Hurricanes first scoring drive of the game early in the fourth quarter. Coming into the game Moss had recorded 11 career receptions.


CB Antrel Rolle

The senior leader in the secondary was all over the field on Saturday. He recorded three tackles for loss and put pressure on the passing game all night long. Known as a physical player, he showed off his tackling ability on a numerous of running plays. He is the heart and soul of the defense and his teammates feed off his energy.

SS Greg Threat

The former Tallahassee high school standout recorded an interception and tied Roger McIntosh for the team-high in tackles with 10. Threat had an outstanding off-season and it showed in the first game of the season. He flies to the ball and makes plays.


CB Devin Hester

With less than four minutes remaining in the game Hester blocked a field goal that would have put Florida State up 13-3 had it gone through the uprights. What was so amazing about the play was that Florida State was overloading Hester's side so he had to go even wider than normal. He has recorded a number of field goal blocks in practice and with his athleticism it came as no surprise that he would do it in a game at some point.

P Brian Monroe

Monroe averaged 35.7 yards per punt a season ago as a freshman and was ready to get his 2004 campaign started. In the opener against Florida State he averaged well over 40 yards per punt including a career-high 60-yard punt. Gaining confidence in a game is something Monroe was searching for. This performance should carry him throughout the season.


DL Eric Moncur

Moncur was one of the top performers in the weight room this past spring as a true freshman after joining the team in December for bowl practices. The 6-foot-3 265-pound defensive linemen enjoyed a productive week on the scout team. He is expected to redshirt this season.

DB Carlos Armour

Armour has been playing cornerback, but at 6-foot-2 and 195 pounds he could grow into a safety. He has a very slender frame and is expected to be a big-time player in the future. The Melrose High School (Tenn.) grad has shown the ability to jump to break-up passes when needed. He is expected to redshirt this season.
