WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — The Atlantic Coast Conference’s top receiver once again can try to beat teams throwing the ball.

Wake Forest’s Michael Campanaro said Tuesday that his broken right hand has healed enough that “I got my fingers back.” That makes him doubly dangerous entering this week’s game at North Carolina State.

Campanaro averages a league-best 8.6 catches for the Demon Deacons (5-4, 3-4) and matched an ACC record with 16 catches last week against Boston College.

He’s also known to throw the ball on trick plays.

He has a passer rating of 412.6 after completing 3 of 4 passes last season with two touchdowns — including a 40-yarder that the Wolfpack still haven’t forgotten.

N.C. State safety Brandan Bishop says he can “pretty much guarantee” Wake Forest will try some trickery.
