2020 All-ACC Academic Football Team announced

Greensboro, NC – Atlantic Coast Conference Jim Tatum Award winner Kingsley Jonathan of Syracuse headlines the 2020 All-ACC Academic Football Team, announced Monday by the ACC league office.
Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.
All 15 ACC Football member institutions were represented on the team. Duke led all schools with 11 selections, followed by Clemson (9) and Miami (9).
The ACC has selected an All-ACC Academic Football Team every year since 1954. The team was chosen from a pool of ACC football student-athletes who were nominated by their schools.

Pitt’s Jimmy Morrissey (C) and Virginia’s Dillon Reinkensmeyer (OT) earned selection to the All-ACC Academic Team for the fourth time. Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence (QB) and Will Spiers (P), Duke’s Michael Carter II (S), Rakavius Chambers (OG) and Marquis Waters (S), Louisville’s CJ Avery (LB) and Pitt’s Deslin Alexandre (DE) are three-time selections.

Thirty-two members of the All-ACC Academic Football Team also earned some form of all-conference recognition. Lawrence, Morrissey, Notre Dame’s Tommy Kraemer (OG) and Miami’s Jose Borregales (PK) were first-team all-conference. All three quarterbacks on the All-ACC team – Lawrence (first team), North Carolina’s Sam Howell (second-team) and Notre Dame’s Ian Book (third team) – are also members of the All-ACC Academic Team.
The ACC Honor Roll, which recognizes all conference student-athletes with a grade point average of 3.0 for the current academic year, will be released in July.
