Former Virginia All-American defensive end Patrick Kerney was announced by the Atlantic Coast Conference on Tuesday as one of its Class of 2015 Legends for the 11th annual Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game, which will be played in Charlotte, N.C., on Dec. 5.

Kerney (1995-98) was a standout defensive end for head coach George Welsh’s Virginia teams of the late 1990s. Kerney capped his collegiate career by earning first-team All-ACC and All-America honors as a senior. His 15 quarterback sacks in 1998 led the ACC, ranked second in the nation and tied the Virginia record set by Chris Slade in 1992.
