Micah Kiser continues to pick up recognition after recognition in his final season in college football, this time earning a spot on the inaugural AP Midseason All-America list.

From the ACC Clemson and NC State each had a defender on the first team, and Clemson and Florida State represented defensively alongside Kiser on the second team.
Kiser leads the ACC with 10.5 tackles per game and is looking to finish top of the league in tackles for the third straight season.
The Hoos are on a four game win streak and on the verge of earning a bowl berth for the first time in six years, but according to Kiser, the players want more.
“Five isn’t the goal, and quite frankly I think for a lot of guys on the team six isn’t the goal.” Kiser said. “We want to go to a bowl game, yes, but at the same time right now we’re 2-0 in the Coastal, and we have our eyes set on more than just going 6-6.”
Virginia can lock up bowl eligibility with a win on Saturday against Boston College. Kick off is at 12:30 and will be televised on regional sports networks.
