Glennon, Manning Earn ACC Honors
Nov. 28, 2011
Raleigh, N.C. -
OFFENSIVE BACK – Mike Glennon, NC State, Sr., QB, 6-6, 232, Centreville, Va.
Glennon completed 26 of 55 passes for 306 yards, five touchdowns and just one interception in NC State’s historic come-from-behind victory over Maryland. Glennon tied the school record for touchdown responsibility by passing for five touchdowns and running for a sixth, tying the mark Philip Rivers set in 2002 vs. Navy. Also, Glennon’s five touchdown passes against the Terps made him the fifth NC State player to pass for five TDs in a game, the last being Russell Wilson against Florida State in 2009.
Glennon set personal career highs with his 55 pass attempts (sixth in NC State history) and 36 completions (fifth). Glennon now has 28 touchdown passes on the season, moving him into a tie for third place with Wilson (28 in 2008) on the NC State single-season list for TD passes. Only Philip Rivers (34 in 2003) and Wilson (31 in 2009) have thrown for more touchdowns in a single season than Glennon has so far in 2011.
LINEBACKER – Terrell Manning, NC State, Jr., LB, 6-3, 233, Laurinburg, N.C.
Manning helped to keep Maryland off the scoreboard the final 25-plus minutes of the game and give the offense a chance to pull off the comeback victory. He had seven total tackles, two of which were tackles for losses totalling 11 yards, and one of those was a quarterback sack for an eight-yard loss. He also caused a pair of Maryland fumbles, and recovered another. Manning recovered a blocked field-goal attempt early in the second quarter and returned it 21 yards.
