  Nick Andersen's moment in the spotlight continued on Tuesday night when "NBC Nightly News" highlighted his story. Andersen, a walk-on freshman, had 11 tackles and three interceptions in a victory over Virginia Tech on Saturday and earned a scholarship beginning with the spring semester. Clawson said that Andersen doesn't want the spotlight and almost turned down NBC's interview request. "I said, 'Nick, it's not too often we get to go on NBC News, so you might want to do this one," Clawson said. Clawson said that there's more to Andersen's story than just the good game. "The story isn't a walk-on with three interceptions," Clawson said. "The story is a young man that came here prepared when we lost Luke Masterson, Nazir Greer, Zion Keith and Coby Davis, here was a young man that got himself ready to play." - Winston Salem Journal

  Nick Andersen, a walk-on freshman defensive back at Wake Forest who starred in Saturday's 23-16 win over Virginia Tech, was named the Bronko Nagurski National Defensive Player of the Week Award winner. This is the second time a Wake Forest player has earned this weekly honor, and the first time since Jon Abbate in 2005.
