Lamar Jackson, 5 Clemson players lead all-ACC team
GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson and five players from top-ranked Clemson headline the all-Atlantic Coast Conference first team.
The ACC released its all-conference teams Monday following a vote of 14 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
Jackson, last year’s Heisman Trophy winner, was selected as the all-conference quarterback for the second straight year after averaging an FBS-best 411 total yards.
The Tigers (11-1, 7-1) were represented by two offensive linemen — tackle Mitch Hyatt and guard Tyrone Crowder — and three defensive players, including linemen Clelin Ferrell and Christian Wilkins along with linebacker Dorian O’Daniel.
Three players were unanimous selections — Syracuse receiver Steve Ishmael, Boston College running back AJ Dillon and North Carolina State defensive end Bradley Chubb.
