Does he get actual hardware every time he wins a weekly award like this? If so, I think he should give one to me. I'd appreciate it.

Here are the ACC individual awards for week 10:

OFFENSIVE BACK – Lamar Jackson, Louisville, QB, So., 6-3, 204, Pompano Beach, Fla.
Jackson accounted for seven touchdowns (four passing and three rushing) in the Cardinals’ win over Boston College. Jackson rushed for 185 yards and three touchdowns and passed for 231 yards and four scores. It was his sixth 100-yard game this year and the 11th of his career. He became the first Louisville quarterback to rush for over 1,000 yards in a season and the first player to do so since 2010 (14th player ever, 18th time overall). Jackson needs four more yards to break ACC record for rushing yards by a quarterback, two more touchdowns to tie ACC mark for TDs in a season and 1 more rushing touchdown to tie the ACC mark for rushing TD by QB.

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN – Lucas Crowley, North Carolina, C, 6-3, 290, Ponte Vedra, Fla.
Crowley led an offensive line that helped pave the way for North Carolina to rush for a season-high 283 yards and post a season-high 636 total yards of offense in Saturday’s 48-20 win over Coastal Division opponent Georgia Tech. Crowley graded out at 91 percent, had nine knockdown blocks and did not allow a hit on the quarterback in the Tar Heels’ victory

RECEIVER – Nyqwan Murray, Florida State, WR, So., 5-11, 176, Orlando, Fla.
Murray posted career highs in catches (nine) and receiving yards (153) while leading the Seminoles to a 24-20 comeback victory on the road at NC State. Murray had a 37-yard catch on the game-winning drive to set up the go-ahead.

DEFENSIVE LINEMAN – DeMarcus Walker, Florida State, DE, Sr., 6-4, 280, Jacksonville, Fla.
Walker registered two sacks and 10 tackles, while playing all 81 snaps for which the Seminoles’ defense was on the field in the win at NC State. The senior defensive end leads the nation with 10.5 sacks. Walker’s second sack forced a punt in the fourth quarter that gave Florida State the ball for the game-winning drive in the 24-20 victory.

LINEBACKER – Ben Humphreys, Duke, LB, So., 6-2, 215, Newport Beach, Calif.
Humphreys recorded a career-high 16 total tackles, including 1.5 tackles for loss in the Blue Devils’ 24-21 loss No. 23 Virginia Tech. He led a Duke defense that limited the Hokies to 12.2 points below their average entering the game. He helped Duke hold the Virginia Tech passing game to just 192 yards – 66.5 yards below its average entering the game – and zero passing touchdowns after the Hokies entered the game ranked third among ACC teams with 22.

DEFENSIVE BACK – Cameron Glenn, Wake Forest, DB, So.-r, 6-1, 200, Stone Mountain, Ga.
Glenn had four tackles, a fumble recovery and an interception that set up a score in Wake Forest's 27-20 win over Virginia.  With Virginia attempting to convert a fourth-and-1 from the Wake Forest 38 in the second quarter, Glenn recovered a fumble that the Deacons were able to convert into a touchdown just before the half.  In the fourth quarter with Wake Forest trailing 20-17, Glenn intercepted a pass and returned it 41 yards to the Virginia 11, setting up a 36-yard field goal to tie the game.

SPECIALIST – Quadree Henderson, Pitt, KR, So., 5-9, 180, Wilmington, Del.
On his first opportunity to touch the ball Saturday, Henderson took a Miami kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown. He leads the nation with a school-record three kickoff return touchdowns this year and has four over his last 10 games (including two 100-yard returns). Henderson also leads the country in kickoff return average (33.8) and is second in combined kick return yards (872). Henderson compiled a game-high 176 all-purpose yards against the Hurricanes, including one punt return for 17 yards
TRI-ROOKIE – Deondre Francois, Florida State, Fr.-r, QB, 6-2, 205, Orlando, Fla.
Francois led Florida State to 10-point comeback victory versus NC State by throwing for 330 yards and the game-winning score on 22-of-38 attempts. Francois completed 15 of 22 passes for 228 yards in the second half. On the game-winning drive, the Seminoles started at their own 17-yard line trailing 20-17 with 4:37 left. The redshirt freshman completed passes of 27 yards, 37 yards and the game-winning 19-yard TD toss to Travis Rudolph to give Florida State a 24-20 victory on the road.

TRI-ROOKIE – Ahmmon Richards, Miami, Fr., WR, 6-1, 192, Wellington, Fla.
Richards posted a pair of career highs in the Hurricanes’ 51-28 win over Pittsburgh as he caught eight passes for 144 yards. His 144 yards broke his own freshman record, which he set earlier this year against Appalachian State. His 144 receiving yards were a game-high.

TRI-ROOKIE – Jessie Bates, Wake Forest, Fr.-r, SS, 6-2, 200, Fort Wayne, Ind.
Bates had four tackles (three solos), an interception, a pass break-up and a quarterback hurry in the win over Virginia.  Bates delivered the key play, intercepting a pass and returning it 39 yards for the winning touchdown with 6:47 to play in the game.  Just minutes earlier, Bates had broken up a pass that was intercepted by Cameron Glenn and returned to the Virginia 11 that set up the game-tying field goal.
