DURHAM, N.C. – Duke redshirt sophomore safety Jeremy Cash was named to the USA Today All-America second team, the publication announced Wednesday.
Cash, a 6-2, 210-pound native of Miami, Fla., has totaled 117 tackles, 8.0 tackles for loss, four interceptions, four pass breakups, two forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries and two quarterback hurries while helping Duke to a 10-3 record, the ACC Coastal Division title and a berth in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31.
Also an All-ACC first team selection, Cash has been a key piece of a Duke defense that has forced 26 turnovers and is holding opponents to 24.7 points per game. He has logged double-digit tackles in a team-high five games and ranks second in the ACC with 9.0 tackles per game. He is the only player in the conference to rank among the league’s top 10 in tackles, interceptions and forced fumbles.
With Cash’s selection, Duke has had at least one player earn All-America honors all six years of head coach David Cutcliffe’s tenure. Cash is the second Duke safety to earn All-America recognition under Cutcliffe, joining safety Matt Daniels who was a second team choice in 2011.
Cash and the No. 22 Blue Devils will take on No. 21 Texas A&M in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on Dec. 31 in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. To purchase tickets, visit
