Charlotte, NC – Wake Forest football player with local times has earned ACC Player of the Week recognition.

Former Northside defensive end Carlos “Boogie” Basham was recognized on Monday by the ACC as the league’s defensive lineman of the week.

Basham, a 6-5, 275-pound redshirt junior defensive end from Roanoke, Va. (Northside). had five total tackles and a career-best 2.5 sacks against UNC.  Each of his sacks led to North Carolina being forced to punt the ball away.  Basham was instrumental in helping the Wake Forest defense hold North Carolina to two-for-16 third down conversions and just 71 first half total offense yards.  The Tar Heels did not cross the 50-yard line until there were under four minutes to play in the third quarter.
