TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Offensive lineman Jason Whitaker received ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors this week. Whitaker, a 6-5, 300-pound guard, recorded 11 pancake blocks, the most by a Florida State lineman in three years, in the top-ranked Seminoles 31-21 victory over 21st ranked Miami this past weekend.
The Panama City, Fla., native was instrumental in the Florida State offensive attack, as the Seminoles rolled up 485 yards of total offense on the Hurricanes, including 332 yards passing and 132 yards on the ground. For his part, Whitaker did not allow a sack or a pressure in the game, and was not whistled for a penalty.
