Wallace, Daniels Earn ACC Honors

Oct. 28, 2002

Georgia Tech football players Kyle Wallace and P.J. Daniels earned Atlantic Coast Conference weekly awards for their play in the Yellow Jackets’ victory over Virginia.

Wallace, Tech’s sophomore right tackle, was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week, while Daniels, a redshirt freshman tailback, was named the ACC’s Rookie of the Week.

A 6-5, 280 pounder from Lawrenceville, Ga., Wallace earned the honor for the second time this season as he led the Tech offensive line, helping the Jackets gain 431 total yards, including 211 yards rushing. The Tech offensive line has allowed no sacks the last two games and just one in the last four games.

Daniels, a walk-on from Houston, Texas, rushed for a game-high 95 yards on 21 carries and caught two passes for 17 yards. He scored Tech’s first touchdown on a one-yard run as the Yellow Jackets jumped to a 23-0 halftime lead.

Also honored by the ACC this week were NC State’s T.A. McLendon (Offensive Back), Calvin Pace of Wake Forest (Defensive Lineman), NC State’s Terrance Holt (Defensive Back) and Maryland’s Steve Suter (Specialist).
