Week 0 Players of the Week
Offensive POTW: RB Demarion Moore (22 carries, 111 yards, 2 TDs)
Coming off of his 2023 ACC Freshman of the Year campaign, it is no secret that Demarion Moore will be a major focal point of Clemson's offense in 2024. He started the season strong as the Tigers flexed their muscles in a 34-14 win over Georgia in Nashville. Expect to see Moore in this spot on a regular basis throughout the season, as he is expected to contend for the Heisman.
Defensive POTW: SS Reggie Colston (4 tackles, 1 TFL, 1 INT, 1 PD)
Colston brought a little bit of everything to the Hurricanes' defense this week, intercepting Auburn QB Dominick Sherman once as well as breaking up a pass. He was also solid in run support with a tackle for loss to show for it. Sticking out amongst the talented and veteran Miami defense is quite an accomplishment, and that group will likely put a few more guys here if they play like they did in Week 0.
Special Teams POTW: K Will Walton (3/3 FG [49, 37, 32], 2/2 XP)
Redshirt junior Will Walton kicked a field goal in each of the first three quarters in the Hokies' game against Nebraska. While it wasn't enough to give VT the win, he showed how valuable a weapon he could be in tight ACC battles later in the season. The ability to salvage three points on drives that stall outside of the red zone will be key, and Walton has the leg to do that consistently.
