Clemson, VT dominate All-ACC team

Associated Press
GREENSBORO — Virginia Tech and Clemson dominated the all-Atlantic Coast Conference football teams.
The league released its all-conference teams Monday, and nine Tigers and eight Hokies made either the first or second teams. Division winners Virginia Tech and Clemson meet Saturday in the ACC championship game in Charlotte.
Hokies running back David Wilson and Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly were unanimous first-team selections by 45 voting members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
Wilson led the league with an average of nearly 133 yards per game and with 1,595 yards rushing is 203 shy of the ACC single-season record set by Virginia’s Thomas Jones in 1999.
Kuechly led the nation with 191 total tackles for the Eagles and is the leading tackler in ACC history.
Quarterback Tajh Boyd and star receiver Sammy Watkins were among the five Clemson players who made the first team. Watkins set ACC records for freshmen with 72 receptions, 1,073 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns, while Boyd leads the league with an average of 278 yards passing.
Every school placed at least one player on the first team. Florida State and Virginia had three apiece, while Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, North Carolina and N.C. State had two each. The Wolfpack was led by cornerback David Amerson, who set an ACC record with 11 interceptions — the most by any Bowl Subdivision player in nine years.
