Fells-Danzer Named ACC Specialist of the Week

For the third week this season, a Virginia football player has been named player of the week by the Atlantic Coast Conference. Junior fullback Terence Fells-Danzer out of Culpepper, Va. was named the ACC's Specialist of the Week after his career performance on Saturday in the Cavaliers' 48-21 victory over Eastern Michigan.

Fells-Danzer botched the short opening kickoff, fumbling the ball at the 19 yard line. However, he bounced back later in the game, recording his first career touchdown on a three-yard pass from Marc Verica in the third quarter. The catch was his second reception as a Cavalier.

Later in the third quarter, after Eastern Michigan brought the game within 3 on a 53-yard run, the Eagles kicked the ball away from Raynard Horne, the ACC's leading kickoff returner. The short kick came to Fells-Danzer, who returned it for 70 yards for a score that started a 24-0 run by the Cavaliers.

It was the second-shortest kickoff return for a score in Virginia history, the shortest coming on a 46-yard kickoff return for a touchdown by Joe Crocker against Maryland in 1994. Coincidentally, both players had other types of touchdowns in the game-Fells-Danzer rushing and Crocker on an interception return.

Fells-Danzer was also honored as the CollegeFootballPerformance.com national kickoff returner of the week.

Fells-Danzer becomes the third Cavalier this season to receive ACC Player of the Week honors. Offensive tackle Oday Aboushi was named Co-Offensive Lineman of the Week in Week 1, and tight end Joe Torchia was named Offensive Lineman of the Week in Week 2.
