Athletes recognized nationally for performance

Brad Kaaya

Hurricanes quarterback Brad Kaaya was announced as the ACC Rookie of the Year Tuesday afternoon. He is second in the ACC in passing yards and the third Hurricane in program history to receive the award.

Kaaya quickly proved himself, breaking single-game passing records in back-to-back games early in the season, throwing for 342 yards against Arkansas State, then breaking that mark a week later with 359 yards against Nebraska.

Some of Kaaya’s numbers this season compare with Hurricane greats – his 25 touchdown passes this season tie him with Bernie Kosar and Ken Dorsey for the fourth most touchdown passes in a single season at Miami.

 

Sheldon McClellan

Canes junior guard Sheldon McClellan was named the ACC Player of the Week Tuesday.

McClellan shot 73.9 percent from the field, 75 percent from three-point range and 100 percent from the foul line in two Miami wins this past week.

He made a double-double with 31 points and 11 rebounds in the Canes’ 77-74 win at Charlotte. McClellan scored 17 points on a perfect six-of-six performance from the field in the 87-75 win over South Alabama.

Teammate Angel Rodriguez earned the same honor last week.
