The 2018 ACC Football Kickoff will be July 18-19, 2018 in Charlotte, North Carolina, which can only mean one thing: football season will be here before you know it. Representing the Virginia Cavaliers will be senior halfback Olamide Zaccheaus and senior linebacker Chris Peace.
Both players received All-ACC honors last season after Virginia made its first bowl game appearance under then-second year head coach Bronco Mendenhall—Zaccheaus with second team honors and Peace with an honorable mention.
Last year, Zaccheaus hauled in a record-setting 85 receptions—breaking Billy McMullen’s school record of 83 receptions set in 2001)—for 895 receiving yards, good for fifth on Virginia’s all-time single-season list.
Peace led the ACC’s linebackers last season with 7.5 sacks, also good for fifth overall in the conference. Both Peace and Zaccheaus has appeared in all 37 games since arriving at Virginia.
Here’s the full list of student-athletes. Coastal head coaches and athletes will do their interviews on July 18, while Atlantic head coaches and athletes will interview on July 19.
