It may be nothing more than an anomaly or flash in the pan, but freshman S DeVon Edwards had quite an auspicious debut yesterday.  Playing in his first game as a Safety, he had 10 tackles by the 3rd Qtr.  Duke was ahead of NC State 10-0 at halftime.  Early in the 3rd Qtr.  State got 2 FGs sandwiched around a punt return TD to go ahead 13-10.  On the kickoff following State's 2nd FG, Edwards returned the kickoff 100 yards for a TD.  Following the kickoff return, on the first offensive play for State in the 4th Qtr, he allowed his man to get behind him and score an 80 yard TD.  Duke then marched down the field and scored a TD.  Later in the 4th Qtr during a 16 second span he picked off two passes (each from a different QB) and returned them 25 yards and 45 yards respectively for TDs.  He was the first NCAA non-offensive player to score 3 TDs in a game in more than 10 years.

 

He's only 5'9 so probably will never be anything more than a STs player in the NFL, but still think it was pretty amazing.
