The ACC announced their All-ACC teams Tuesday morning on the ACC Network’s “Packer and Durham”. Unsurprisingly, Clemson led the way with 16 players on the first, second, and third teams. Virginia placed four players in five positions over the three teams, and added another six players on the Honorable Mention list.
Joe Reed was Virginia’s lone First Team representative, both as the All Purpose player and as a specialist for his kick returns. As a receiver, Reed has six touchdowns on 70 receptions for a total of 627 yards. Reed leads the country with a 34.7 yards kick return average and returned two kicks for a touchdown this season with one against William & Mary (100 yards) and one against Duke (95 yards).
Dynamic quarterback Bryce Perkins earned Second Team honors as Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence was named the First Team QB. Perkins is No. 1 in the ACC in total offense with 3,636 yards. He went 264-for-412 (64%) in the air for a total of 2,941 yards and 16 touchdowns while adding 687 yards and 11 touchdowns with his legs. Against UNC, Perkins set a school-record for individual total yards in a game with 490, and his 475 yards against VT are second.
This is the second straight All-ACC honor for both Reed and Perkins as Reed was Third Team (kick return) and Perkins was Honorable Mention in 2018.
Safety Joey Blount and Linebacker Jordan Mack, the latter of which won the Jim Tatum Award for the top football student-athlete in the ACC, both earned All-ACC Third Team honors. Wide Receiver Hasise Dubois, Center Olusegun Oluwatimi, Defensive End Eli Hanback, Linebackers Charles Snowden and Zane Zandier, and Kicker Brian Delaney were all named to the Honorable Mention list.
