All-ACC Teams Announced + Links!

BC has 4 representatives on the All-ACC teams this year...

1st Team All-ACC

LT Anthony Costanzo
LB Luke Kuechly

2nd Team All-ACC

C Matt Tennant
RB Montel Harris

Congratulations to all 4 players for being named as the best of the best in the ACC. Kuechly and Harris in particular deserve special recognition for their contributions to the team this season for shouldering a heavy burden of responsibility due to a key contributor being injured, graduating, or transferring. Also something to consider is that Tennant is the only member of this All-ACC class who will not be back next season.

One player that I was surprised did not receive an All-ACC mention was Ryan Quigley. Quigley has done a tremendous job pinning opposing teams in their own end of the field. He was 2nd in the conference in punts inside the 20 and only shanked 1 punt this season (that I can recall).

Lost in the shuffle of the all-conference teams being released was Luke Kuechly being recognized as the ACC Defensive player of the week. It's his 2nd consecutive player of the week award (he was named rookie of the week last week). Kuechly had 16 tackles Saturday against Maryland including his leaping stop of Terps QB JaMarr Robinson on 4th down that led to the Eagles' game winning field goal.

Frank Spaziani feels like 8 wins is a tremendous accomplishment for a team that faced as much adversity as this Boston College team.

The Eagles are home now focusing on their classes while awaiting their fate in the bowl selection process. Where are they headed? We'll find out Sunday.
