     "Hard hitting", "sure tackler", "great game speed and vision" are all phrases that college football commentaters are using to describe Sean Spence.

     After a spectacular freshman season,true sophomore Sean Spence will take the field this fall as starting weakside backer.

     Keeping up with the message boards and at the spring game, fans are expecting big things from the hardest hitting baby cane. Leading the team in tackles for loss, a pick six against the hated Noles and who could forget sacking superman himself,(Tim Tebow) Spence had made a big name for himself.

     As most true freshmen playing their first full season in college Spence hit a wall after the 10th  game of the year, he all but disappeared against GT in that horrific beat down, but with a full season of college conditioning I predict his sophomore campaign will be one to remember.

     This young linebacker has all the tools in place for a run at a ACC first team selection. Also having Michael Barrow as a defensive assistant roaming the sidelines cant hurt.

     With Colin McCarthy being injury prone his last two seasons and Arthur Brown pushing for playing time, the canes could have one of the youngest and most promising linbacking units in the ACC.
