TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – A pair of Seminoles collected ACC Player of the Week honors on Monday following No. 1 Florida State’s 23-17 overtime victory over No. 22 Clemson.
Senior wide receiver Rashad Greene was named ACC Receiver of the Week after totaling nine receptions for 135 yards and a 72-yard touchdown in the win over the Tigers. Green’s 72-yard score tied the game 17-17 with 6:04 left. He had eight receptions for 132 yards in the second half alone to lead FSU’s charge back.
Greene leads the ACC in receptions (24), yards (418) and yards per game (139.8). This is his second ACC Receiver of the Week honor this season and fourth of his career.
Junior defensive lineman Eddie Goldman captured ACC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors after he was a force against Clemson. Despite nursing an injured ankle that knocked him out of the previous game, Goldman made two of the biggest plays against the Tigers. With the game tied 17-17, under two minutes left on the clock and Clemson driving at the FSU 18-yard line, Goldman forced a fumble that gave the Seminoles the ball back and vaulted the game to overtime.
In the extra period, Goldman sacked Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson for a 4-yard loss and spearheaded a 4th-1 stop two plays later.
It’s Goldman’s first ACC Player of the Week honor of his career.
