12/02/17 - 2017 ALL-ACC FOOTBALL THIRD TEAM (COACHES/MEDIA): CB Avonte Maddox, Sr., Pittsburgh, 55 Votes,...Despite missing more than two games due to injury, Maddox (Detroit, Mich./Martin Luther King) was Pitt's most productive cover man, compiling 11 pass breakups and two interceptions. He also had three forced fumbles, ranking second in the ACC and 20th nationally in that category (0.30 per game). Maddox was also a highly effective blitzer, collecting four sacks. He had two in the fourth quarter of Pitt's 24-14 upset of Miami, including a strip-sack that iced the victory. - Pittsburgh Football
11/27/17 - NOV 27 ACC CO-DEFENSIVE BACK OF THE WEEK: Avonte Maddox, Pitt, Sr., CB, 5-9, 180, Detroit, Mich.,...Maddox saved perhaps his best performance for his final collegiate game. Maddox had four tackles, two quarterback sacks and two pass breakups. He iced Pitt's 24-14 upset victory over No. 2 Miami when he strip-sacked quarterback Malik Rosier with 1:45 left, turning the ball and the game over to the Panthers. Both of Maddox's sacks came during the fourth quarter, and his sack-strip was the final play of his Pitt career. Maddox spearheaded a stingy Pitt secondary that limited Miami to just 187 yards on 15-of-36 passing (42 percent). - ACC Football
