Waddell Named ACC Specialist Of The Week

North Carolina's Michael Waddell (Ellerbe, N.C.) has been named the ACC Specialist of the Week for his performance in Carolina's 38-27 loss to Wisconsin. Waddell had four punt returns for 176 yards, including a 97-yard touchdown on the game's first play. The 5-11, 183-pound senior's kickoff return for a touchdown was the Tar Heels' first since Kory Bailey's score against Georgia Tech in 1998. The 97-yard return equaled the third-longest kickoff return in school history. Waddell also added kickoff returns of 18, 35 and 26 yards. His 176 yards on kickoffs was just eight yards shy of the school record.
