Three Virginia Tech players tabbed 1st team All-ACC
The All-ACC football team was released Monday afternoon, and not surprisingly, Virginia Tech was well-represented after becoming the first ACC team since 2000 to finish the conference slate undefeated.
The Hokies on the first team were quarterback Tyrod Taylor, cornerback Jayron Hosley and place kicker Chris Hazley. Taylor beat out North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson by two votes, while Hosley got more votes than any other defensive back. Hazley has made 19-straight field goals since missing the first kick of his career against Boise State.
Representing Virginia Tech on the second team were right tackle Blake DeChristopher, right guard Jaymes Brooks, defensive end Steven Friday, defensive tackle John Graves, linebacker Bruce Taylor, defensive back Davon Morgan, punter Brian Saunders, and running back David Wilson as a return specialist.
Center Beau Warren and tight end Andre Smith were both tabbed as honorable mention. The only notable snub to me was cornerback Rashad Carmichael.
For full disclosure, the All-ACC team was voted on by 61 members of the media. Each first-place vote represents two votes. Washington Post rules precluded me from taking part. The full list is after the jump:
