Player News
10/19/2013 - Quarterback Tanner Price had touchdowns rushing, receiving and passing in Wake Forest's 34-10 victory over Maryland on Saturday. Price was 26 of 36 through the air for 231 yards, scored on a 4-yard run and caught a 4-yard TD pass from receiver Michael Campanaro - the trick-play master's fourth career touchdown throw. Price hit Campanaro with a 10-yard touchdown pass to become the first player in school history and the fourth Bowl Subdivision player this season to hit the touchdown trifecta. He joined Clemson's C.J. Spiller as the only ACC players since 2000 to do it.

Josh Harris' 1-yard touchdown run on the opening series put the Demon Deacons (4-3, 2-2) on their way to their fourth straight home victory over the Terrapins (5-2, 1-2). Backup Caleb Rowe threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Levern Jacobs to briefly pull Maryland to 24-10 midway through the third quarter. - AP Sports

10/08/2013 - WEEK 6 COLLEGE FOOTBALL STARS: Tanner Price, Wake Forest, threw three TD passes and ran for another to help the Demon Deacons beat North Carolina State 28-13. - AP Sports

10/01/2013 - Wake Forest's senior-laden offense at the skill positions isn't panning out and that was further demonstrated by the second-half benching of QB Tanner Price at Clemson. It might have been as much about trying to preserve Price physically for when the Demon Deacons are in more winnable games (they trailed 35-7 at halftime), but it's also acknowledgement that the offense is in shambles. Price isn't alone because senior RB Josh Harris was called upon for only four carries (for 7 yards), though he picked up 31 receiving yards. - The Sports Xchange

09/11/2013 - Scouting the running game: The Demon Deacons seemed disjointed at times in trying to run the ball, a situation that has seemed magnified with QB Tanner Price making decisions on option plays. The Demon Deacons have restructured in such a way that they're counting on the rushing attack to set the foundation. - The Sports Xchange

08/29/2013 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: The Demon Deacons need to follow through on their pledge to run the ball effectively. This would return the program to its more comfortable roots, plus it should allow some more openings downfield if opponents have to respect the rushing attack again.

QB Tanner Price needs a solid season after an uneven performance in 2012. The defense became pushovers by the end of last season, so showing more backbone is one of the requirements for this team. There needs to be some confidence building early in the season for a team that lost four of its last five games -- with all the defeats coming by at least 29 points. QUOTE TO NOTE: "I've had some great memories. I feel like I've learned a lot from those tougher seasons." -- QB Tanner Price, who started as a true freshman after the successful four-year run of QB Riley Skinner. Price is about to enter his senior season, still looking to produce a winning record with the Demon Deacons. - The Sports Xchange

08/29/2013 - Tanner Price accounted for two touchdowns, redshirt freshman Jonathan Williams had 143 yards receiving and Wake Forest forced six turnovers in a season-opening 31-7 victory over Presbyterian on Thursday night. Price was 14 of 25 for 219 yards, threw a 20-yard TD pass to Spencer Bishop and ran 3 yards for another score.

With their Atlantic Coast Conference opener coming next Friday night at Boston College, Wake Forest mostly kept things simple on offense while its defense forced three fumbles and picked off three passes. Brandon Chubb returned an interception 29 yards for a touchdown and redshirt freshman Josh Wilhite took his first career carry 21 yards for a late score. Williams caught five passes and set a school record for receiving yardage by a freshman in his debut. - AP Sports

08/11/2013 - PLAYERS TO WATCH IN 2013: QB Tanner Price - He's a three-year starter with one season remaining. It was an uneven junior season for the left-hander, whose stretches of inconsistency added to the team's woes. His protection was often a problem, and there were also shortcomings among receivers that added to his less-than-stellar statistics. - The Sports Xchange

08/11/2013 - OTHER WAKE FOREST PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: QB Tanner Price (6-2, 205, 4.79)...An athletic passer, Price lacks ideal size and has a limited arm, but he is smart and experienced with 34 collegiate starts already under his belt. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
