3. TOP WAKE FOREST PLAYERS

Best Wake Forest Offensive Player

WR Sage Surratt, Soph. 
The receiving corps needed a guy to rise up and be a strong second option to go along with Greg Dortch, and that’s exactly what Surratt was as a true freshman.

The 6-3, 220-pounder has great hands, can get deep, and was able to finish second on the team with 41 catches for 581 yards and four scores. However, 11 of his grabs came in the opener against Tulane, and now he has to be a true No. 1 guy with Dortch gone.

2. RB Cade Carney, Sr.
3. QB Jamie Newman, Jr.
4. QB Sam Hartman, Soph.
5. PK Nick Sciba, Soph.

Best Wake Forest Defensive Player

CB Essang Bassey, Sr. 
Ultra-reliable, quick, and tough, he’s been a rock for the secondary for the last three seasons with 38 career broken up passes with 74 tackles an interception and a sack last season. He’s a thin 5-10, 190-pounder but he’s not afraid to get physical and he’s a strong matchup for everyone’s No. 1 target.

2. LB Justin Strnad, Sr.
3. DE Carlos Basham, Jr.
4. S Luke Masterson, Jr.
5. S Nasir Greer, Soph.
