DURHAM, N.C. -- Redshirt freshman safety DeVon Edwards was named Ronald McDonald House Charities Duke Student-Athlete of the Week following the Blue Devils’ 38-20 win over N.C. State. A native of Covington, Ga., Edwards logged 10 total tackles, returned two interceptions for touchdowns and added a 100-yard kickoff return for a third score as the Blue Devils won their fifth consecutive game. 

Edwards established Duke freshman single-game records for longest kickoff return, total points (18), highest kickoff return average (49.33 on three returns) and most interception returns for touchdowns.
 
With Duke nursing a 24-20 advantage late in the fourth period, Edwards returned interceptions 25 and 45 yards for touchdowns just 16 second apart to help seal the victory.  He became the first Duke player to return two interceptions for touchdowns since Leon Wright against Army in 2009, and the first Blue Devil to return a kickoff for a score since Jabari Marshall versus Connecticut in 2007.
