School and ACC record 17 receptions propels Syracuse WR Ervin Philips to Uplifting Athletes Rare Performance of the Week


ERVIN PHILLIPSSyracuse showed it has more than one major weapon at wide receiver in a tough loss on the road at NC State.

With the Wolfpack double teaming star Orange wideout Steven Ishmael, senior wide receiver Ervin Philips was in single coverage all day and took full advantage.

Phillips set a Syracuse and Atlantic Coast Conference single-game receiving record with 17 catches to earn the Uplifting Athletes Rare Performance of the Week.

Those record setting 17 catches by Phillips resulted in 188 yards as part of a Syracuse passing attack that totaled nearly 400 yards through the air. Phillips surprisingly did not score a touchdown, though.

The previous mark for catches in a single game at Syracuse was 14, shared by NFL Hall Of Famer Art Monk and Ishmael. Phillips’ monster game vaulted him to second in the country in receptions this season with 44 – seven behind teammate Ishmael.
