Wake Forest redshirt freshman WR Greg Dortch caught eight passes for 125 yards in Saturday's 38-24 loss to Georgia Tech.

The Demon Deacons held a 21-13 lead at the half, but managed just a field goal the rest of the way as Georgia Tech came back to win relatively comfortably. For his part, Dortch has logged 100-yard receiving efforts in two of his last three games. After a 4-0 start to the campaign, Wake Forest has now lost three consecutive contests. They'll try to halt that skid against Louisville next weekend.
Oct 21 - 11:56 PM

Wake Forest HC Dave Clawson said senior QB John Wolford (undisclosed) has practiced every day this week and will return for next week's game against Georgia Tech.

This is no surprise, as Clawson named Wolford the starter for the Georgia Tech game roughly a week ago. Still, it's good news that Wolford has been able to consistently practice without issue this week. Wolford missed the Clemson game two weeks ago. He and his teammates were on bye last weekend. Through five games, Wolford has thrown for 947 yards and an 8/1 TD/INT rate on 63-percent completions.
Oct 18 - 1:24 PM

Wake Forest HC Dave Clawson announced that senior QB John Wolford (undisclosed) will be able to return for next week's game against Georgia Tech.

Fortunately, the Demon Deacons are on bye this week, giving Wolford extra time to heal from his undisclosed injury. "He practiced yesterday and threw the ball," Clawson said. Clawson estimated that Wolford was at about 80-percent health for last Saturday's loss at Clemson. Kendall Hinton started that one. Hinton will return to the bench with Wolford back.
Oct 11 - 5:00 PM

Wake Forest junior WR Cortez Lewis (undisclosed) did not play on Saturday against Clemson.

Wake Forest has a bye, so Lewis could be able to play in two weeks against Georgia Tech. We should know more about the injury soon.
Oct 7 - 5:19 PM

Wake Forest junior QB Kendall Hinton completed 14-of-30 passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 28-14 loss to Clemson.

He also ran for 92 yards. The stats look strong, but Wake Forest didn't score their two touchdowns until the fourth quarter with the score 28-0. Hinton drew the start because John Wolford was less than 100-percent due to an undisclosed injury. We'd expect Wolford to be back next week to run Wake's Claw-fence at Georgia Tech.
Oct 7 - 3:22 PM

Wake Forest redshirt freshman WR Greg Dortch had 10 catches for 110 yards in a 26-19 loss to FSU on Saturday.

He also had four carries for seven yards. Outside of QB John Wolford running around, Dortch is the Demon Deacons' best source of offense. The second-year freshman has posted an eye-opening 30-352-5 line during Wake Forest's 4-1 start.
Sep 30 - 7:37 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 24-of-34 passes for 271 yards and an interception and ran for 63 yards and a score in a 26-19 loss to FSU on Saturday.

Wolford's throwing motion is quite ugly, but he's smart and mobile, and HC Dave Clawson schemes towards his strengths and away from his weaknesses. This was the first time all season that Wolford has thrown for more than 250 yards. It's also the first time this year that he's thrown an interception.
Sep 30 - 7:34 PM

Wake FOrest senior QB John Wolford completed 14-of-27 passes for 176 yards and two scores and ran for 77 yards in a 20-19 victory over Appalachian State on Saturday.

Wolford (6'1/200) has struggled with accuracy in his last two games (26-of-49), but he's been able to make plays with his feet and just enough plays with his arm for Wake Forest to stay undefeated. His first touchdown pass was a nine-yard pass to Greg Dortch to give the Deacons a 10-9 lead in the middle of the third quarter, and he found Cam Serigne a few minutes later to make it 17-16 Wake Forest with three minutes left in the quarter. Wolford and Wake Forest get their toughest test of the season so far when they travel to Florida State next Saturday.
Sep 23 - 7:06 PM

Wake Forest redshirt freshman WR Greg Dortch had four catches for 68 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's win over Utah State.

After redshirting his first year on campus, the 5-foot-9, 160-pounder has made an immediate impact for an offense that desperately needs playmakers. He's caught at least four balls in each of the team's first three games. Dortch owns a respectable 14-179-4 line.
Sep 19 - 2:07 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 12-of-22 passes for 242 yards and two scores and ran for 53 yards and a score in a 46-10 drubbing of Utah State on Saturday.

Wake Forest could have won this game by just running the football, but they did damage in the air, too, thanks in large part to Wolford. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound signal-caller had a pair of 40-plus yard touchdowns in the first quarter, a 43-yarder to Greg Dortch and a 45-yarder to Cam Serigne. His touchdown run came with 9:09 left in the fourth from 18 yards to make it 43-7 Wake Forest. It's early, but Wolford looks like one of the most improved players in the ACC, if not the nation.
Sep 16 - 6:28 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 13-of-19 passes for 151 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 92 yards and another score in Saturday's 34-10 win over Boston College.

It's early, but Wolford looks like a different quarterback than the guy that came into the year with a 27/35 career TD/INT rate. He's rushed for 139 yards and two touchdowns and completed 24-of-34 passes for 258 yards and a 4/0 TD/INT ratio during Wake's 2-0 start.
Sep 9 - 5:07 PM

Wake Forest redshirt senior TE Cam Serigne caught two passes for 34 yards and two touchdowns in Thursday's 51-7 win over Presbyterian.

Serigne (6'3/250) put in his entire evening's work within the first seven minutes of the game, hauling in scores of eight and 26 yards. And that was that. The John Mackey Award watch list-er is coming off a 2016 season in which he rocked a 30-426-3 receiving line. We expect an uptick on all three numbers of that line this season. Already almost there on the touchdown front. Wake Forest will take on Boston College in a traditional Saturday match-up on September 9 when they next take the field.
Aug 31 - 9:58 PM

Wake Forest senior QB John Wolford completed 11-of-15 passes for 107 yards and three touchdowns while rushing for 47 yards and a score in Thursday's 51-7 win over Presbyterian.

All four of Wolford's touchdowns came in the first half. He hit up TE Cam Serigne for a pair of scores in the first quarter, finding him from eight and 26 yards out, then punched it in from two yards out early in the second quarter. Greg Dortch would score the final touchdown off Wolford's hand on a seven-yard scoring toss just minutes later. While the senior gunslinger performed well against FCS Presbyterian, there's no reason to expect more of the same as the season unfolds -- Wolford has never posted a season with more touchdown passes than interceptions. He holds a 30/35 TD/INT ratio for his collegiate career.
Aug 31 - 9:50 PM

Wake Forest named senior QB John Wolford the starter.

Wolford won starting honors over redshirt sophomore Kendall Hinton. If nothing else, he is an incredibly seasoned option -- his 35 games played tie for third-most among active quarterbacks in the FBS. This past season, Wolford threw for 1,774 yards with a 9/10 TD/INT ratio.
Aug 26 - 9:44 PM

Wake Forest suspended redshirt sophomore DE Paris Black for the first three games of the 2017 season for an unspecified violation of team rules.

No further details were given. A former three-star recruit, the 6-foot-3, 255-pound Black received sporadic playing time off the bench in 13 games last season.
