Players of the Week for Week 7

Week 7 constituted as a rebuilding week for many teams, and a separation Saturday for others. Here are the players that helped separate their teams from the pack.

OFFENSIVE BACK—Cedric Peerman, Virginia, RB, 5-10, 208, Sr., Gladys, Va.
Against East Carolina, Peerman rushed for a season-high 173 yards on just 16 carries and scored twice. He also caught a career-high eight passes for another 26 yards.

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN—Eugene Monroe, Virginia, Tackle, 6-6, 315, Sr., Plainfield, N.J. Monroe played every snap in the Cavaliers' win and graded out at a team-leading 88%, his highest grade this season and the second-highest by any Virginia player in 2008. He helped pave the way for the Cavaliers to rush for a season-high 202 yards.

DEFENSIVE LINEMAN—Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech, DE, 6-4, 270, So., Coatsville, Pa. Morgan had career-highs of four tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks. He also added 10 total tackles and he partially deflected Gardner-Webb’s game-tying field goal in the closing moments of the Yellow Jacket’s 10-7 win. Morgan had seven solo tackles.

DEFENSIVE BACK—Quan Sturdivant, North Carolina, OLB, 6-2, 230, So., Oakboro, N.C. Sturdivant returned an interception 32-yards on the opening drive of the second half in North Carolina’s 29-24 victory over Notre Dame to change the momentum and bring the Tar Heels within one point of the Fighting Irish at 17-16. Sturdivant also added 10-tackles for the second consecutive game.

SPECIALIST—Casey Barth, North Carolina, PK, 5-11, 170, Fr., Wilmington, N.C.
Barth booted three field goals, all in the first half, of Carolina’s 29-24 win over Notre Dame. He converted on efforts from 41, 24 and 42 yards. Barth tied the single-game school record for most field goals by a freshman with three.

ROOKIE—Matt Conrath, Virginia, Defensive End, 6-7, 269, R-Fr., Oak Lawn, Ill.
Conrath recorded only two tackles but was instrumental in Virginia’s 35-20 victory over East Carolina. He sacked the East Carolina quarterback early in the fourth quarter and forced a fumble in the process, which was recovered by the Cavaliers. He also broke up a pass and graded out at 85% on the Virginia defense which held East Carolina’s offense to 89 yards on the ground.
