DURHAM, N.C. – Duke redshirt senior quarterback Sean Renfree underwent surgery on Friday to repair a torn right pectoralis major muscle.  The injury was suffered late in the fourth quarter of last night’s Belk Bowl against Cincinnati as Renfree closed his collegiate career with a 358-yard passing performance.
 
The procedure was performed by Dr. Claude T. Moorman III, Duke’s head team physician and the director of Duke Sports Medicine.  Renfree is expected to make a full recovery.
 
“As always, Sean is in great spirits,” said Duke head coach David Cutcliffe.  “While this is an unfortunate setback, those who know Sean have no doubt that he will turn this misfortune into something positive.  He is a very special young man; one who has done so much for our football program here at Duke.  I just can’t say enough about his character, leadership and selflessness, and those attributes don’t begin to describe Sean’s ability to play the game of football.  He is one of the best to play not only at Duke, but in the Atlantic Coast Conference.”
 
In 2012, Renfree led the Blue Devils to the program’s first bowl appearance since 1994 and finished the year having completed 297-of-441 (.673) passes for 3,113 yards with 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.  The two-year Duke captain also has received recognition for his off-field accomplishments this season by being named a National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete and the recipient of both the ACC’s Jim Tatum Award and the Pop Warner National College Football Award.  In addition, he was named to the AFCA’s Good Works Team and is a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award.
 
The Scottsdale, Ariz., native owns both the school’s single-season (.673 in 2012) and career (.647) records for passing accuracy while ranking second on Duke’s all-time chart for total touchdown responsibility (60).  Renfree’s career passing yardage total stands third-highest in school history, trailing only Thaddeus Lewis (10,065) and Ben Bennett (9,614).
 
For his career, Renfree was 898-of-1,389 through the air for 9,465 yards with 51 touchdowns and 40 interceptions.  On the ACC’s all-time lists, his totals rank third for completions, tied for fourth for 300-yard passing games (11), sixth for pass completion percentage and seventh for passing yardage.
 
Renfree graduated from Duke in December of 2011 with a degree in public policy and has completed requirements for a graduate degree in humanities.
