Several Hokies earned All-ACC honors by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA).
Several other Tech players earned Honorable Mention honors…
Dadi Nicolas was not named First Team, losing out to FSU defensive end Mario Edwards. Edwards had 11 tackles for loss and three sacks, while Nicolas had 17.5 tackles for loss and nine sacks. In fact, Ken Ekanem had 13.5 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks, but only made third team.
The other odd pick was Luther Maddy making Honorable Mention. Maddy played in just four games and had 0.5 TFL, yet earned 33 votes by the writers.
It will be interesting to see how the media’s team compares to the coaches’ team.
