Canes running back Duke Johnson is being honored by the ACC.

Johnson was named the ACC rookie of the year.

The former Miami Norland runner was also named ACC offensive rookie of the year.

Duke Johnson ended his season with a 3-touchdown performance at Duke.

He was a key cog in the Canes offense, as Miami finished 7-5.

For the second consecutive year, the Canes turned down a bowl possibility because of an ongoing NCAA investigation.
