WAKE FOREST NOTEBOOK; Deacons Try out Three-QB System


Smits, Garry, The Florida Times Union


Byline: GARRY SMITS

Wake Forest's offense contains enough wrinkles to drive opposing defensive coordinators dizzy.

Demon Deacons coach Jim Grobe came up with another for the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game Saturday afternoon.

Despite having the ACC's rookie of the year and passing efficiency leader in Bolles graduate Riley Skinner, Grobe decided to also use running back Kenneth Moore at quarterback, taking direct snaps in a shotgun.

Although the ploy didn't play a major factor in Wake Forest's 9-6 victory, Moore said it kept the Georgia Tech defense off-balance.

"It created some indecision," Moore said. "Sometimes they jumped out of their gaps, or stepped back a little, and that was enough."

Grobe even had a backup plan. When Moore sprained his ankle, running back De'Angelo Bryant got in several snaps. That meant the Demon Deacons used three quarterbacks in the game.

"It gave them a little different look," Grobe said. "We had the option of running the speed sweep [to another back] or Kenneth keeping the ball."

ANOTHER TITLE IN THE FAMILY

Wake Forest tight end John Tereshinski now has an ACC championship to rival his older brother, Joe, who won a Southeastern Conference title as a Georgia quarterback last season.

However, little brother has something over big brother: John owns a 1.000 winning percentage at Alltel Stadium, while Joe T. is 1-3.

"You better believe I'll be calling him," John said. "But I'm pretty sure he was watching. We support each other. I'm glad I can add a conference championship to the family."

John made one of the biggest offensive plays, a 39-yard, fourth-quarter reception that set up Sam Swank's game- tying field goal.

POSTSEASON BOOST

Wake Forest clinched an Orange Bowl berth with its ACC title, but before this season, its high-water mark came Jan. 1, 1946, when the Demon Deacons helped inaugurate the Gator Bowl with a 26-14 victory over South Carolina.
