Sam Hartman will return; All-ACC QB back in 2022 for Wake Forest

Sam Hartman is hoping for more of the same in Winston-Salem: a 2022 encore. Following one of the best seasons in program history, Hartman seemed to announced on his Instagram account that he plans to return to Wake Forest for the 2022 season.

Hartman was named Second Team All-ACC this season.

During the 2021 campaign, while Hartman led Wake Forest to an Atlantic Division title, the star quarterback threw for 3,924 yards and 36 touchdowns. Hartman completed 58.8 percent of his pass attempts, while averaging 8.4 yards per attempt.

As the point man for one of the most explosive offenses in the FBS, Hartman also ran for 11 touchdowns.

Hartman leads the ACC with 33 pass completions of 30+ yards, which also ranks second among FBS quarterbacks.

Still technically a redshirt sophomore, Hartman is in the midst of his fourth season with Wake Forest. As a true freshman in 2018, he started nine games for the Demon Deacons. Hartman played in four games during the 2019 season, while serving as Jamie Newman’s backup, and took a redshirt.

During his four seasons with the Demon Deacons, Hartman has thrown for 8,962 yards and 69 touchdowns.

Depending on how things shakeout at the wide receiver position, Hartman could return to Wake Forest with a terrific crew on the perimeter.

A.T. Perry, the breakout star of 2021, is a redshirt sophomore. Jaquarii Roberson is a redshirt junior; he still has remaining eligibility. Perry and Roberson combined this season for 132 receptions, 2,244 yards and 22 touchdown catches.

After missing the 2021 season with an injury, Donavon Greene, another talent, should be ready to roll, too.

Taylor Morin — 39 receptions, 563 yards, five touchdowns — will also be back.
