Warrick And Bush Earn ACC Weekly Honors
TALLAHASSEE, FL -- Florida State's Peter Warrick and Daryl Bush earned Atlantic Coast Conference player of the week honors as they led the Seminoles to a 35-28 win over No. 15 Clemson last weekend.
Warrick garnered offensive back of the week honors as he scored three touchdowns and racked up 372 all-purpose against the Tigers. The sophomore from Bradenton, Fla., pulled in a 48-yard scoring pass from Thad Busby to allow the Seminoles to regain a 21-14 lead in the third quarter. In the fourth quarter, Warrick returned a punt 90 yards for a score to give FSU a 28-17 advantage and after the Tigers closed the gap to 28-25, Warrick caught a Busby swing pass and streaked the sidelines on an 80-yard scoring play.
Warrick's 90-yard punt return was the second longest in FSU history and earned the AT&T Long Distance "punt return" award. In Warrick's honor, AT&T has donated $400 to the NCAA's Degree-Completion Scholarship Program.
Bush, a senior linebacker from Altamonte Springs, Fla., came up with his first career interception to regain possession for the Seminoles after a fumble, leading to a Bill Gramatica field goal. Bush collected 10 tackles on the day, including five solo stops, a third-down stop and one for a loss. He also recorded two sacks, including one for seven yards on a first and goal at the two-yard line after which Clemson had to settle for a field goal.
