GREENSBORO, N.C. – Redshirt senior quarterback Quentin Harris and senior linebacker Koby Quansah will represent Duke at the 2019 ACC Football Kickoff, July 17-18 at the Westin Charlotte located in Charlotte, N.C. 

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced Tuesday the 28 football student-athletes who have been chosen by its 14 league schools to attend the main preseason event. Duke and the rest of the Coastal Division will hold its media availability at the kickoff on Thursday, July 18.

Harris is charted as the starting quarterback, taking over the reins from three-year starter Daniel Jones, the No. 6 overall selection in the 2019 NFL Draft by the New York Giants. In 23 career games with two starts, Harris has completed 41-of-81 (.506) pass attempts for 510 yards and eight touchdowns against one interception while rushing 78 times for 275 yards (3.53) and seven TDs. The Wilton, Conn., product owns a career pass efficiency rating of 133.63. During two starts, against Baylor and N.C. Central in 2018 while filling in for the injured Jones, Harris completed 27-of-57 passes (.474) for 376 yards and six scores while rushing 19 times for 117 yards and one TD as Duke won both games.

Quansah heads into 2019 listed as the starting middle linebacker. In 35 career games with five starts, Quansah has 102 tackles, 9.0 TFL, 1.0 sack, two caused fumbles, one fumble recovery, one pass breakup and six quarterback pressures. A native of Manchester, Conn., he has 10 or more tackles in three games including a career-high 13 stops against Army West Point in 2017. Quansah has 20 games with two or more tackles and five or more stops in seven contests. He will enter 2019 having recorded at least one tackle in 20 straight contests.
