Raleigh, NC – Another dominant performance inside from Lennard Freeman led NC State to an 86-68 victory over Presbyterian Thursday night at PNC Arena. The Wolfpack moved to 4-0 in its first season under head coach Kevin Keatts.

NC State’s defensive pressure caused Presbyterian to cough it up 22 times, making it the fourth-consecutive game the Wolfpack’s opponents have finished with 20 or more turnovers. NC State took care of the ball effectively as it finished with a 2:1 assist-to-turnover ratio with 16 assists to just eight turnovers.

Lennard Freeman was unstoppable in the paint, leading five double-digit NC State scorers with a career-high 23 points on an efficient 9-of-12 from the field and 5-6 from the free throw line. Tonight’s game marked the third time this season Freeman has reset his career-high. He previously set his career-hight in points this season with 15 against VMI, then had 20 against Bryant and then 23 tonight. Freeman also made his presence felt on the defensive end, recording career-highs in both blocked shots and steals with three.

Torin Dorn led the Wolfpack in rebounding with a season-high nine board, while Markell Johnson led the team in assists, for the fourth consecutive game with seven, and steals with four.

Dorn added 18 points along with a career-high four assists, Allerik Freeman chipped in 12 points and Omer Yurtseven finished with 11 points on a season-high five made field goals on seven attempts. Markell Johnson had 10 points to round out a balanced attack for the Wolfpack.

While NC State came out with the win, Presbyterian made the Wolfpack work for it as they went into the half with a 44-36 lead. The Blue Hose turned the ball over only seven times in the first half, fewest for an NC State opponent in a half this season, while also shooting 60 percent in the first half to go into the locker room with an eight-point advantage.

The Pack turned up the defensive pressure in the second half, forcing Presbyterian into 15 turnovers in the final 20 minutes. NC State re-took the lead with 13:34 left to play on a Dorn layup and never looked back as the Pack never trailed again.

After shooting 60 percent from the field and turning the ball over only seven times in the first half, the Blue Hose shot 31.6 percent in the second half and turned it over 15 times. In the final 20 minutes, Presbyterian only had six made field goals.

For the season, NC State has now forced its opponents into 94 turnovers. For the third time in four games, the Pack had less than 10 turnovers in a game as NC State finished the game against Presbyterian with eight.

NC State flexed its muscle down low as Freeman and Yurtseven combined to shoot 14-of-19 from the field and helped the Pack to a 56-32 advantage in points in the paint. 

After four games in seven days, the Pack now has five days until its next contest. NC State returns to the hardwood Wednesday when it faces third-ranked Arizona in the first round of the Bad Boy Mowers Battle 4 Atlantis held on Paradise Island in the Bahamas. The game will tipoff at 7 p.m. and will be televised on ESPN3.

Raleigh, NC – Quotes from the press conference after the NC State win over Louisville by football coach Dave Doeren and select Wolfpack players.

Dave Doeren and playersNC STATE HEAD COACH DAVE DOEREN

(Opening statement)

I’m really proud of our players and our coaching staff. What a win. Great football game. Bunch of players on both teams playing hard. When you can play like that in that environment, it was electric. Our student section was the best I’ve ever seen it tonight, and we’d love for it to be like that every week. They make our team so much better when they do that for us. Thank you to our fans for that.

I thought Ryan Finley played a tremendous game, gave a lot of guys opportunities. Two receivers over 100 yards, and Nyheim (Hines) I thought really played hard. Our guys just wanted it. There were guys that got banged up – (Garrett) Bradbury’s out there laying on the ground, ribs are all beaten up. A lot of guys wouldn’t be tough enough to deal with that, and he was right back out there. That’s just a credit to the toughness of our guys, and I love them for it.

We worked really hard to get to this point. I told our team it was coming, told y’all it was coming. Some of you believed me, some of you didn’t. You can just feel it right now in our locker room. They believe they’re the best team. They’re playing hard, they’re playing together, and they’re tough, and it’s a lot of fun. A lot of blood, sweat and tears went into it.

We get a nice little break coming off a short week, get to recharge our batteries a little bit and actually watch a little college football. Come back Sunday and get ready for Pitt.

(On Ryan Finley’s performance)

Ryan really has done what he’s done every game. He’s consistent and he knows where to go with the football. He makes plays, keeps up in drives. He’s a great game manager and distributor of the football. He’s got great touch, Coach Drink has done a heck of a job coaching him. He knows exactly what to do, when to do it, how to do it, and he’s never affected by anything. That’s exactly what we want at that position.

(On Nyheim Hines)

He just plays angry. He’s competitive, spirited. Super talented, and he’s the most competitive guy on the field at times. He hates not playing well. Plays football like he runs track, trying to get a personal best all the time.

(On the team’s maturation process)

They don’t want to be denied what they feel is theirs right now. We talked about it today with the team. They’ve had the struggle. They’ve had to learn what the word ‘perseverance’ means. It’s one of our core values. You don’t just choose to persevere, you have to have adversity. You have to have struggle, you have to face your fears. To do that, you’ve got to grow up, dig deep. Our guys did that. They’ve invested so much, they can’t give in right now. They’re going to find a way. Offense is feeding the defense, defense feeding the offense. That’s the fun part of it. You can hear them on the sideline encouraging each other and it’s great. There’s no flinch in these guys, I can tell you that.

(On Bradley Chubb returning for an environment like tonight)

We talked about finishing what we started. That was one of the factors, but there were a lot of factors. I guarantee you seeing the student section paint their bodies with ‘Chubb 4 Heisman’ made him feel good tonight. That was pretty awesome. That was never in our conversation, but he’s a cult hero right now and he deserves that.

DE Bradley Chubb

On the crowd tonight

“It definitely feels good. The support is amazing. We are just looking to build on that and keep it going.”

On Lamar Jackson

“He’s electric. He’s fast. He can do a lot of things with his feet and his arms. We just had to try and contain him the best we could.”

On delivering on a big stage

“The sky is the limit for this team. I sincerely believe that. That’s the main reason I came back. I knew we weren’t done. It’s just good to see things come to fruition. We’re going to try and keep the momentum going to the next game.”

LB Germaine Pratt

On intercepting the reigning Heisman Trophy winner

“He’s great. It doesn’t matter who he is. He is a great player, but we want to win. That’s all my motto is: to win.”

On if these ACC wins make NC State a great team

“We pride ourselves to work hard and be good. We feel like this is a great win for us, but we are just going back to work Sunday.”

On sealing the game with the pick six

“As a defensive player, we want to be on the field at the end of the game. So we seized it.”

WR Kelvin Harmon

On the offense tonight

“Oh we just feed off each other’s energy. Any time Steph(en) Louis makes a big play, I thought ‘Hey, I’ve got to match him.’ We had good chemistry out there and we were just on our game tonight.”

On making difficult catches

“It just comes from repetition. Just doing it all the time and just believing. Having great chemistry with (Ryan) Finley, he just puts the ball there.”

On where this win ranks during his time at NC State

“It ranks definitely number one. Most recent win. Big win. Thursday night football. Prime time. That’s a great win.”

On the belief held by the team

“That feeling has been there since the summer. Coach Thunder and those guys pushed us so hard, and we just looked around and we just put the pieces of the puzzle together and believed that we could really make something happen. As the season goes on, it keeps growing.”

ACC Football Notes
Led by Florida State and Clemson, five Atlantic Coast Conference football teams are ranked in both the preseason Associated Press and Amway Coaches Top 25 polls. The Seminoles are third in both polls, and Clemson is fifth in both. Also included in the rankings are No. 16 (AP)/17 (Amway) Louisville, No. 18/18 Miami and No. 21/22 Virginia Tech.

The ACC is the only conference with two top-five selections in the AP poll and is tied for second with five teams in the poll. This marks the second consecutive season (and second time overall) two ACC teams have been included in the AP preseason top five. Last year, Clemson and Florida State also were ranked in the top five.

No. 3 Florida State will face No. 1 Alabama on Saturday, Sept. 2, in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game in Atlanta. Those are the highest-ranked teams in a season opener since the AP started a preseason poll in 1950. Dubbed the “Greatest Opener of All-Time (GOAT),” the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game is the fourth season-opening matchup between two top five opponents.

ACC teams will play more games (22) against Power 5 non-conference teams in 2017 than any of its peer conferences. The ACC will also have a higher percentage (.393) of its non-conference games against Power 5 opponents than any other league.

ACC teams will play more games against non-conference teams (9) that were ranked in this year’s AP Top 25 than any other peer conference.

Including the 11 ACC teams that went to bowl games, no ACC team will face fewer than seven opponents that went to bowls last season. ACC teams will play 26 games against non-conference opponents that went to bowl games in 2016, the second-highest total among peer conferences.

The 2017 schedules for three ACC schools – Syracuse (seventh, .613), Georgia Tech (eighth, .609) and Duke (ninth, .606) – rank among the top 10 nationally in opponents’ winning percentage.

ACC teams’ FBS non-conference opponents had the second-highest winning percentage (.526) in 2016 of any of the Power 5 conferences.

The ACC will begin the 2017 season tying its record (14) for most games on a single weekend, which was set in 2015 when all 14 schools played non-conference opponents.

Last year, the ACC tied its record for most non-conference victories on an opening weekend by posting a 10-2 record. That is also the best winning percentage on an opening weekend with eight or more non-conference games. The ACC had 10 non-conference wins in 2010 and 2015.

The ACC set a league record in 2014 for most non-conference wins on any weekend, posting a perfect 11-0 mark in week two. That was also the most wins in an undefeated weekend in league history.

Charlotte, NC – NC State football coach Dave Doeren and players Bradley Chubb and Jaylen Samuels represented the Wolfpack at the 2017 ACC Football Kickoff. Below is the transcript of their time at the podium in front of the television media.

DAVE DOEREN: First of all, just excited about the year to come and the culture in our program and the chemistry of our team and our staff, and you hear me say it, our players say it, “One Pack, One Goal” is our mission statement. It’s a united mission to win a championship, and it comes — driven through work ethic and blue-collar values and everything we talk about programatically is becoming the best us we can be, outworking ourselves the day before, thinking about who we’re going to play against on the other side of the football, and not taking any of our opportunities for granted, not just as a player or as a coach but in life. I’m proud of our players and our coaches for the journey that we’ve had and the obstacles and the adversities have made us more together, more strong, more tough, and all the challenges that stand in front of you as a person, as a man, as a coach, as a father, they’re there for a reason. They’re there for you to face them, and that’s what we’ve done. And we’ve become harder, we’ve become tougher, we’ve become more together because of all of us, and that’s what we’re all about.

People ask me about our program, the identity of our program is hard, tough, together. That’s us. We want to play hard, and we’re going to be tough, and we’re going to have great love for each other in the room. And I’ve got such a great staff of coaches and strength coaches and trainers and football operations and recruiting and academics and nutrition and sports psychology, you name it. Our player development is as good as it’s ever been. And that’s — my job is to surround these great kids, these great young men, with positive role models, people that help them become great at what they want to be and what they want to do, and it’s a pleasure to see them grow.

And to have Bradley and Jaylen here, two guys that I recruited, our staff recruited, that have worked so hard and bought in and brought tremendous leadership, culture, and now ownership and accountability to what we want; to sit here now in year five with an experienced roster of guys that we’ve battled hard with and to see them get the notoriety that I believe they deserve is just the beginning, and to me, it’s just part of the journey. By no means is it something that satisfies you, it just inspires you, and like I’ve told all of them when I’ve congratulated them, I’m proud of them for the recognition, but let’s hunt it. Let’s go get those goals.

To me the best teams always have the most recognized players, and that’s what we want to have at the end of the season.

To go into this season, just from a program standpoint, last year I stood here and there was a lot of unanswered questions for me going into fall camp. It’s probably the opposite. We’ve got more depth on both line of scrimmages. We’ve got more depth at different positions. We’ve got more proven players in certain areas, and there’s opportunities at other positions. You know, we have great competition and experience back at running back, but we have to replace a great player in Matt Dayes, and I know the guys in that room look forward to that.

Last year we didn’t have anyone at receiver really besides Bra’Lon that had proven himself, and all of a sudden Steph Louis averages 19.9 yards a catch, Kelvin Harmon comes in as a true freshman and breaks the NC State record for touchdowns. So you hope you can have something like that happen in the backfield for you.

Similarly on defense we lost three starters in the secondary, and people worry about that. I’m excited for the opportunity that’s there for these young guys, and Nick McCloud, I think, is going to be a great player for us, and so for him to have an opportunity, Jarius Morehead, Dexter Wright, these guys have worked hard, and that’s what it’s all about is seeing a young player grow up, opportunity presents itself, giving him that chance to be great at it, and him seizing that moment. That’s really what ’17 will be about for our program.

I know I’m supposed to introduce these two young men sitting to my left, so I will do that. Bradley Chubb and Jaylen Samuels, not just great football players, but great human beings from great families and tremendous representation for us on what you want a student-athlete to look like in four years. They’re sitting right there to my left.

Tremendous, tremendous players, people, citizens, future fathers, future husbands, you name it. These guys are the best. I’d like to bring them up to the stage now. Come on up, Jay-Sam.

Q. I mentioned to you last night they basically added a position on the preseason All-ACC team to recognize what you do for the Wolfpack. How does that make you feel?
JAYLEN SAMUELS: It makes me feel very good just to add another position. I mean, that’s crazy just to think about that. But that means something special to me, and I’m going to keep working hard to prove people wrong.

Q. Not just yourself but also Nyheim Hines, both of you offensively and your versatility, how you can play off each other and really become a dangerous offense this year?
JAYLEN SAMUELS: Yeah, me and Nyheim, we have a lot of versatility that we can bring to the table. Me and him, we have a lot of the same kind of skill sets together, being able to move out of the backfield, catch the pass, go in the backfield, run the ball. You know, it’s going to be kind of scary for defenses to prepare for us next year.

Q. Jay-Sam, you probably made big plays from as many different spots in the field as anybody at NC State history, as many different play calls. Do you stay awake at night fantasizing new ways to make your mark, and can you tell us one that you really are thinking about making happen this year?
JAYLEN SAMUELS: Like every night, like, in the off-season, I’m just thinking about the upcoming season and like what I’ve got planned going into my senior season, my last year at NC State. Just trying to leave a mark for myself as a player on and off the field. You know, just at night I think about the plays that I could have made last year, but I don’t try to think about it, I just try to move forward. But just try to work on the little things every day with Coach “Thunder” [Dantonio Burnette], him getting us right in the weight room. We’ve got one of the best weightlifting coaches in the country. Just every day just trying to push myself to be better so I know I can do better than what I did last year.

Q. You’ve got a former Syracuse offensive coordinator now in the staff, George McDonald who works with the offense. I wondered how much interaction you’ve had with him and if you can speak to what he’s been like.
JAYLEN SAMUELS: Can you repeat that?

Q. Yeah, George McDonald is now one of the assistants at NC State, used to be at Syracuse. I wonder what your thoughts are.
JAYLEN SAMUELS: Oh, Coach McDonald, he’s a great coach. He stays on me a lot. He’s one of them type coaches he likes to joke around. He’s joking with you, but he’s really telling the truth. He’s a great coach. He pushes me to the limit. He knows what I can do, and he just wants to see me be successful, and I thank him for so much, for all he has done, and I’m looking forward to spending my last senior season with him.

Q. Bradley, you had the close calls against Clemson, a game you probably clearly should have won, Florida State, also. What is a fair expectation for you guys this year, and how much of it is based off what you were close to being able to do last year?
BRADLEY CHUBB: Like Jaylen said, we try not to think about last year. It’s a new year. We’re striving to be the best that we can possibly be, on and off the field, and when you’ve got guys that are going to go out there and play their hearts out for each other and for one another, I just never know what’s going to happen. I feel like if we all just continue to play for each other, like I said, then the sky’s the limit for this team, and those close calls won’t be close anymore, and those games that y’all say we should have won, I feel like those games are going to be won.

Q. A lot of depth on your defensive line. Talk about the other guys. Talk about how you guys make it work as a group.
BRADLEY CHUBB: The guys we have in the defensive line room are just phenomenal, B.J. Hill, Justin Jones, Kentavius Street, Tyrone Riley, Darian Roseboro, Eurndraus Bryant; the list could go on. Those guys are like my brothers. I talk to them every day. I see them every day. We hang out even when we’re not supposed to — even when we’re not together, we’re always talking, hanging out, we’ve got a group message, we’re always joking around, and I feel like just that brotherhood that we have with each other, it just helps us to rely on one another because we don’t want to let somebody down. Because if I let Justin down, if I let B.J. down — I’ve known Justin since I was in eighth grade, and if I let him down, I know it’s going to hurt me more than it hurts anybody else. And so I feel like that’s what makes us so good. We just love each other so much and we care about each other so much that whatever we do, we’re just trying to do it for one another.

Q. Speaking of the decision to come back to NC State, why that was the right thing for you to do at this point in your career and what it means to play for the Wolfpack.
BRADLEY CHUBB: It means everything. This University means everything to me. Coach Doeren, I met him when I was 17 years old at a time where I didn’t think I was going to play college football because I was — off an injury that happened to me previously. But this University has made me into the man I am today, and I’m thankful for it every day. When you talk about the decision, I just prayed to God. I just talked to my family the most. I just felt like it was the best thing for me at the time, and I still — 100 percent behind that decision. Nobody could sway my head one way or another because I feel like when I prayed to God that he put me in this position right now, and I feel like I can’t doubt God. Just coming back here, I’m just excited to see what we can do as a team and just excited for the season.

Q. They say every team every year has a different personality. What do you want the personality of this year’s team to be?
BRADLEY CHUBB: We just want to be that team that you don’t want to play because you know we’re going to hit you hard in the mouth. We’re going to try to — the offense is going to run the ball down your throat. They’re going to pass it over your head. We just want to be that team that you don’t want to play because you know we’re going to play as hard as we possibly can, and you’re going to get the best from us every week.

Q. Running back is one of the very few positions on offense where you don’t return the starter. You have recruited very well at that position. How do you see the competition to replace the great Matt Dayes unfolding?
DAVE DOEREN: I’m excited to see it. I think it’s opportunity for Dakwa Nichols, for Reggie Gallaspy, for Nyheim Hines, for Jaylen Samuels. Those four guys are all very skilled players that deserve chances at the football, and that’s what fall camp will be about. I think the positive of the unknown is that there’s options in it, and so I’m looking forward to seeing that room compete because I’m going to tell you, Coach Kitchings, he’s a hard coach. He gets on those guys and coaches them tough. It’s going to be demanding in fall camp to see who can do the best job, and it may be a deal where we’re rotating guys. We’ll just see how it plays out.

Q. I asked Jaylen this, I’d ask you the same thing about George McDonald and why you thought he’d be a good guy to bring in.
DAVE DOEREN: Yeah, George McDonald is a tremendous coach. He’s a great man. He’s a great father, a great husband. He’s a really good mentor. He’s recruited his butt off for us and developed players in that room. He’s earned tremendous respect, not just from a player standpoint but from a coaching standpoint and in our staff room. He’s well-liked, and I’m very blessed to have him on our staff.

Q. Just speak a little bit further on Jaylen Samuels, and because he’s so versatile what he can do for this offense without Matt Dayes.
DAVE DOEREN: Yeah, I think there was 271 touches Matt Dayes had last year and 40 some through the air, the rest on the ground, so that’s a lot of opportunity right there for Jay-Sam and the other guys that I just mentioned and for Coach Drinkwitz and his staff to figure out where the ball goes. Obviously for Jay-Sam, you’d love to see him having the ball in his hands as many times as you can and not having Matt there creates that void for him and others to take advantage of.

Q. Do you think the depth you’ve been able to accumulate is going to lead to more redshirting freshmen?
DAVE DOEREN: You know, it should, unless there’s someone like Kelvin that comes in that’s ahead of his years from a development standpoint. You would hope that that happens. There are some spots like I’d mentioned in the secondary where we may have not necessarily a starter but a guy that plays on special teams and may have a role in a sub package, just because we’ve lost more back there than we have anywhere else. But I would like to think that 90 percent of our freshmen coming in would have to redshirt because of the experience we have and how we’ve developed and staggered the roster over the last four years.

Q. Dave, similar to what I asked Bradley, you’ve not shied away from putting some expectations on this team, and not only the games you won last year but a couple of the games you lost were stepping stones I think for the program. How do you manage expectation because Wolfpack fans sometimes get a little bit scared about that?
DAVE DOEREN: Well, first of all, you want expectations, and you have to earn them. That’s the one thing I told our guys, be proud of people talking nicely about you, but also understand that changes quickly when you don’t live up to those things. And so the bottom line for me and our program is we don’t look at where you want us to end up. We all want to be champions in college football. There isn’t a coach that won’t tell you that.

Our focus is on the daily grind, the daily competition, the daily opportunity to get better, and if you realize that opportunity, then your roster is getting better on a daily basis, which makes you a better team when you get to the game. It’s the same thing for my staff. I challenge them all the time, we’ve got to be our best every day, and I think if we just take that daily approach — we call it one more — what one more thing can I do today that I didn’t do yesterday to get better, then we’re putting ourselves at a place difficult to beat and that’s the bottom line game. You want to walk out of every game knowing you did everything you could do. Win or lose, you didn’t do anything in retrospect from an effort standpoint that you could have done differently.

Q. Do those close losses at Clemson and to Florida State, do those serve as motivators? Do you still think about those games?
DAVE DOEREN: Oh, I think about every game. I think any time you have a game that really exaggerates the importance of one play, it helps your program because you can go to that and say, hey, when we work out today, guys, this last rep, it matters because every rep matters. Remember when, you can go right to one play in the game that changes the game. Everyone goes like this. So they know how important a finish to a rep is, whether it’s a weight room rep, whether it’s a running rep, whether it’s a mental thing in a meeting room, a walk-through rep, but there is no rep in a football game that can’t change the game. And when you have those tight games like that where it goes one way or the other, it’s quick to point to a play and say, that could have changed it. And that helps your development and it helps your off-season, and I think it helps kind of hammer home the word finish, which is what it’s all about. It’s finishing plays, finishing games, finishing quarters, the whole deal.

I think any obstacles that we’ve had in front of us has only made us stronger as a team, as a family.

Q. Two-a-days, how have you guys adjusted the schedule for camp this year?
DAVE DOEREN: You know, we haven’t done two-a-days. Last year’s camp we didn’t do them. So we use the opportunities to teach at night in a walk-through environment or in a run-through environment. We just have really studied injuries and the best way to prevent those kind of things in our program. For us the biggest change was the day off during camp. You’ve never had that before. This is the only time of the year where we get to coach football without classes going on. Once you get into that phase, and now they have a day off with no class, which is — and they’re not even allowed to come talk to us. Like a player could call me and say, Coach, I’d really like to watch film with you today and I have to say no, which I think is a crazy rule personally. If a young man wants to do something, let him do it. Don’t let us mandate it, but people want to get better.

I understand a lot of sports use off days as travel days and do — we don’t do that in football. Don’t do it. You know, we give our guys days off.

I think fall camp to me — it’s like my favorite time of the year from a coaching standpoint. Once that last summer school final is over and we hit the field with those guys for 10 to 14 days without academics and just get to talk about the chemistry and the football and the Xs and Os and what it’s all about to be at our school, that’s a huge program time for you, and so I’m really excited about it.

You know, using the current format which was your question, I think it’s all about trying to maintain the quality of your practice and keep as many players in back to back to back to back sessions that you can so they can improve.

Greensboro, NC – Florida State is the preseason favorite to claim the Atlantic Coast Conference football championship, according to a poll of 167 media members held in conjunction with last week’s 2017 ACC Football Kickoff.

The Seminoles, who posted a 10-3 overall record last season and defeated Michigan in the Capital One Orange Bowl, are also picked to capture the Atlantic Division, while Miami received the nod as the likely Coastal Division winner.

Reigning Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson of Louisville was chosen to repeat as ACC Player of the Year after a record-setting 2016 campaign in which he averaged 393.4 yards per game of total offense and accounted for 51 touchdowns, both ACC single-season records. His 1,571 rushing yards and 21 rushing touchdowns were also ACC records for a quarterback.

Jackson, a rising junior from Pompano Beach, Florida, who is the youngest player to win the Heisman Trophy, also was named the 2016 National College Football Player of the Year by the Maxwell Award, Walter Camp, the Sporting News and CBS Sports.

Florida State was named the likely 2017 ACC champions on 118 ballots, followed by defending national champion and two-time defending ACC champion Clemson with 35 votes. Louisville received seven votes, followed by Virginia Tech and Miami with three each and Duke with one.

In the Atlantic Division preseason voting, Florida State led the way with 121 first-place votes and 1,108 total points. Clemson followed with 37 first-place votes and 1,007 points, while Louisville received nine first-place votes and checked in with 843 total points.

NC State (658 total points) was tabbed for a fourth-place Atlantic Division finish, followed by Wake Forest (415), Syracuse (362) and Boston College (283).

Miami, beginning its second season under head coach Mark Richt, was selected the likely Coastal Division winner by 103 voters and amassed 1,065 total points. Defending division champion Virginia Tech followed with 40 first-place votes and 932 points. Georgia Tech placed third with nine first-place votes and 708 points.

Pitt (seven first-place votes) totaled 673 points, followed by North Carolina (four first-place votes) at 606, Duke (four first-place votes) at 473 and Virginia at 219.

The Atlantic and Coastal Division winners will meet in the 2017 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game on Saturday, December 2, at Charlotte’s Bank of America Stadium. If this year’s media predictions prove correct, it will be a first-ever title game matchup of teams from the Sunshine State and a rematch of an early regular-season showdown. The Seminoles and Hurricanes meet in Tallahassee on September 16.

Florida State owns 15 ACC championships since joining the league in 1992, just behind leader Clemson’s 16 conference crowns. Head coach Jimbo Fisher will welcome back 20 starters this season, including talented sophomore quarterback Deondre Francois and a deep defensive secondary led by Tavarus McFadden, Nate Andrews and Derwin James, a redshirt sophomore who returns after being sidelined by a knee injury in the second game of last season.

Louisville’s Jackson led the preseason ACC Player of the Year balloting with 113 votes, while Florida State’s Francois was listed on 23 ballots and Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins on 11.

Boston College defensive end Harold Landry received eight ACC Preseason Player of the Year votes, followed by NC State all-purpose standout Jaylen Samuels with seven and Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey with two. Miami linebacker Shaquille Quarterman, Miami wide receiver Ahmmon Richards and Duke quarterback Daniel Jones each received one vote.

Greensboro, NC – The Atlantic Coast Conference led all conferences with nine players selected to the 2017 Preseason John Mackey Award Watch List, which was announced Tuesday by the Friends of John Mackey.

Wake Forest senior Cam Serigne (Ashburn, Virginia) is making his third appearance on the preseason watch list, having been so honored before the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Florida State junior Ryan Izzo (Highland Lakes, New Jersey) is being honored for the second time, having been named before the 2016 season.

Louisville was one of three schools nationally to have two players chosen to the list in juniors Micky Crum and Jordan Davis.

Given annually to the most outstanding collegiate tight end, the award recipient is selected by vote of the John Mackey Award Selection Committee and the 2017 Mackey Award recipient will be announced on December 6, 2017. He will then be presented live on December 7, 2017, at The Home Depot College Football Awards Red Carpet Show on ESPNU. All future announcements can be found at www.johnmackeyaward.com.

NFL Hall of Fame member John Mackey, who played collegiately at current ACC member Syracuse from 1960-62, is considered to be the best to have played the tight end position.  A tight end by whom all others are measured, Mackey was a role model on and off the field as demonstrated by his Super Bowl Championship, his commitment to community and his place in history as the first President of the NFLPA.

Since the Award’s inception for the 2000 season, four players from current ACC schools have won the Mackey Award, most recently Florida State’s Nick O’Leary in 2014. Clemson’s Dwayne Allen (2011), Virginia’s Heath Miller (2004) and Miami’s Kellen Winslow II (2003) also captured the honor.
