Nick Clancy Earns ACC Linebacker of the Week Honors
Sept. 17, 2012
Boston College's Nick Clancy has earned Atlantic Coast Conference Linebacker of the Week honors, according to a league announcement made on Monday.
Clancy, a 6-foot-3, 232-pound senior from Plainfield, Ill., registered a career-high 24 tackles - 14 solo and 10 assisted tackles - in Boston College's 22-13 loss at Northwestern, marking the second-most tackles in one game in school history and the highest single-game tackle total since Frank Chamberlain matched the school record with a 25-tackle performance against Syracuse in 1999.
Chamberlain shares the school record with Stephen Boyd, who tallied 25 tackles against Virginia Tech in 1994, and Tom McManus, who recorded 25 tackles against Rutgers in 1991.
Clancy entered the season with a career single-game high of seven tackles (against Wake Forest in 2009), leads the ACC in tackles (43) and tackles per game (14.3) through three games in 2012.
Next, Boston College (1-2) will host Clemson on Saturday, Sept. 29.
