You can remember this past season. Or you can think about the future.
Both are among the reasons that FSU quarterback Deondre Francois was named ACC Rookie of the Year.
Francois ended the season with 3,138 yards passing – the fourth highest total ever for a freshman quarterback. He had 18 touchdowns to six interceptions. He also ran for 189 yards and four more scores.
Francois received 25 votes, far outdistancing Clemson defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence and Duke quarterback Daniel Jones.
During the season, Francois was named ACC Rookie of the Week four times. He was also named the league’s Offensive Rookie of the Year.
Seminoles’ defensive end Brian Burns was fifth in the voting for Defensive Player of the Year.
