ACC announces Preseason All-Conference team

Posted by Chip Patterson

On Monday the media at the ACC Football Kickoff voted for the Preseason All-ACC team. The veteran group is made up entirely of juniors and seniors, and is led by Boston College's Preseason Player of the Year Montel Harris. Harris, along with Eagle teammate Luke Kuechly and N.C. State tight end George Bryan all earned preseason and end of the year all-conference honors in 2010. Kuechly was also named a unanimous first-team All-American heading into the 2011 season.
