Seminoles’ Telvin Smith named ACC Linebacker of the Week


Miami Herald Writer

Junior linebacker Telvin Smith was named Atlantic Coast Conference Linebacker of the Week after his performance in Florida State’s 33-20 win over Miami on Saturday night. Smith totaled a career high eight tackles, including two for loss, and had two passes defended. He also forced a key fumble that set up FSU’s first points and helped turn momentum after the Seminoles trailed 10-0 in the first quarter.

“I just go out there and play hard every chance I get,” said Smith, whom coach Jimbo Fisher referred to as “walking chaos” after Saturday’s game. “Any chance I get to make a play I’m going to capitalize on it.”

Stout defense

Despite their offensive woes on Saturday night, the Seminoles defense held Miami to a season-low 258 yards, including just 29 rushing yards. FSU’s defense currently ranks in the top 10 nationally in all five major statistical categories.
