Another ACC Rookie Award for Johnson

Nov. 22, 2004

ATLANTA–Georgia Tech freshman wide receiver Calvin Johnson was named Atlantic Coast Conference Rookie of the Week for the second straight week and the fourth time this season.

Johnson caught five passes for 108 yards against 18th-ranked Virginia, recording his third 100-yard game of the season and second in a row.

The 6-4, 225-pounder leads the Jackets with 41 catches for 732 yards, a Tech freshman record and the second-best yardage total ever by any ACC freshman, trailing only Koren Robinson of NC State (853 in 1999).

A native of Tyrone, Ga., Johnson is second in nation in receiving yards by a freshman. He ranks second overall in the ACC in receiving yards per game (73.2), third in receptions per game (4.1) and second in touchdown receptions (6).

He was also named ACC Rookie of the Week following Tech wins over Connecticut, Duke and Clemson.
