The ACC released the player of the week accolades today with Tar Heels sophomore cornerback Dominquie Green snagging co-defensive back of the week honors.
CO-DEFENSIVE BACK – Dominquie Green, North Carolina, So., S, 5-11, 190, Laurinburg, N.C.
Green recovered three fumbles and returned one for 20 yards to set up a touchdown in UNC’s 56-29 win over Liberty. Green’s three fumble recoveries were part of six turnovers the Tar Heels gained in the win (four fumble recoveries, two interceptions). A year ago, Carolina recovered just seven fumbles all season.
Talk about being in the right place at the right time. Green was in the area to scoop up three of Liberty's four fumbles in Saturday's 56-29 win over the flames. One of the recoveries led to a touchdown amid the Tar Heels' 28 point third quarter outburst.
