New, 2 comments

Just another day at the office for BC junior linebacker Luke Kuechly, who was recognized as the ACC Football Linebacker of the Week for week 1:

"LINEBACKER - Luke Kuechly, Boston College, LB, Jr., 6-3, 237, Cincinnati, OH Junior LB Luke Kuechly recorded 19 tackles in Boston College's 24-17 loss to Northwestern. The Cincinnati, Ohio, native has now tallied 10 or more tackles in 23 consecutive games which is the longest active streak of double-digit tackles in the country. Kuechly also recorded his fifth career interception with just over nine minutes to play in the first half and returned it 23 yards to the Northwestern two yard line. BC scored its first touchdown of the season two plays later."

Maryland led the way this week with three selections, including Danny O'Brien (Offensive Back), Joe Vellano (Co-Defensive Lineman) and Cameron Chism (Defensive Back). N.C. State and Virginia also placed two players on this week's Players of the Week list, while Georgia Tech was also represented.

Here is the complete list of nine players recognized by the conference.
