BLACKSBURG – Two Virginia Tech players, defensive back Chamarri Conner and offensive lineman Doug Nester earned ACC Player of the Week honors after stellar performances in Tech’s 40-14 victory over Boston College last Saturday.
Conner (6-0, 211) registered a career-high 11 tackles (five solo) and also registered a pass breakup and a QB hurry. The Jacksonville, Florida native also forced a fumble for the second time in his career, one of five turnovers the Hokies’ defense caused.
He leads the Hokies in tackles in 2020 with 29.
Nester (6-6, 327), the Co-Offensive Lineman of the Week, started at right guard and helped the Hokies rush for 350 yards, the team’s third game of 300 or more yards on the ground in 2020. Tech averaged 8.5 yards per attempt in the contest vs. Boston College. The offensive line allowed just a single sack against the Eagles.
The Huntington, W.Va., native was also named to the PFF College National Team of the Week.
