Canes_Gunter_2013Miami Hurricanes junior Ladarius Gunter was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Specialist of the Week on Monday — his second ACC Player of the Week award and UM’s seventh of the season.

Gunter scored a touchdown for the second consecutive game in Miami’s 27-23 win Thursday at North Carolina. The touchdown was made possible by teammate Artie Burns’ blocked field goal. The ball landed in Gunter’s arm, and he raced down the sideline for the 67-yard score.

Gunter became the first Hurricane to return a blocked field goal for a touchdown since Devin Hester did it against the Florida Gators in the 2004 Chick-fil-A-Bowl.
