Norman, Sade Honored

Posted Sep 9, 2013

GREENSBORO, N.C. - NC State defensive end Art Norman and placekicker Niklas Sade both earned ACC Player of the Week honors after their performances in the Pack's 23-21 win over Richmond this past Saturday.

CO-DEFENSIVE LINEMAN - Art Norman, NC State, Jr., DE, 6-0, 243, Stone Mountain, Ga.
Norman recovered a fumble in the third quarter at the Richmond yard line to set up the score that pulled the Wolfpack within one point in an eventual 23-21 victory. On Richmond's next series, he tallied a 10-yard sack and caused a fumble. Richmond was sacked just five times all of last season. Norman also had a quarterback pressure and four other tackles in the contest while playing 54 snaps.

SPECIALIST - Niklas Sade, NC State, Jr., PK, 6-3, 212, Wake Forest, N.C.
Sade hit all three of his field goal attempts in Saturday night's 23-21 win over Richmond and is now 7-for-7 for the season. Sade is tied for the national lead in field goals made, ranks ninth in scoring and second in kick scoring. Sade's final field goal on Saturday night was the game-winning kick in the win over Richmond with 33 seconds left on the clock - a 48-yarder which was the second-longest of his career.

All six of his kickoffs in the win over the Spiders were touchbacks. Sade was also named a Lou Groza Award National Star of the Week for the second straight week.
