Greene, Jackson Capture ACC Player of the Week Honors

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Senior wide receiver Rashad Greene captured ACC Receiver of the Week honors for the third time in the young 2014 season on Monday, while senior right guard Tre’ Jackson collected ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors.

Greene and Jackson led FSU to a come-from-behind 56-41 victory at NC State on Saturday.

The Seminoles erased a 24-7 first quarter lead as Greene totaled 11 receptions for 125 yards and the go-ahead touchdown. His four-yard score in the third quarter gave FSU its first lead of the game, 42-38.

Greene is the ACC’s leader in receptions (35), receiving yards (543) and yards per game (135.8). The Albany, Ga., native has 206 career receptions is just seven catches away from becoming Florida State’s all-time leader in receptions. Ron Sellers had 212 catches from 1966-68.

This is the fifth ACC Receiver of the Week award of Greene’s career.

Jackson garnered ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors for the first time in his career after having the highest grade by a Seminole this season in the win over the Wolfpack. Jackson anchored an offensive line that paved the way for the FSU offense to tally a season-high 531 yards of total offense. Jackson also opened holes for Karlos Williams, who rushed for a career-best 126 yards to become the first 100-yard rusher for the Seminoles this season.
