TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Florida State freshman Levonte “Kermit” Whitfield captured ACC Specialist of the Week honors on Monday after he returned a kickoff 97 yards for a touchdown in the Seminoles’ 59-3 victory at Wake Forest.
Whitfield’s touchdown was FSU’s first kickoff return for a score since 2008 and tied for the fourth-longest kickoff return ever at FSU. Whitfield is averaging 34.4 yards on nine kick returns this season, which would lead the conference and be an FSU single-season record if he had the minimum 10 returns to qualify.
