2011 All-ACC Football Team: Georgia Tech Has Only One First-Team Player

Offensive lineman Omoregie Uzzi is the only Yellow Jacket to crack a team composed primarily of Virginia Tech and Clemson players.

After a strong 6-0 start to the season, Georgia Tech lost four of their last six games, undoubtedly contributing to their poor showing on the 2011 All-ACC Football Team.

Only one Yellow Jacket, guard Omoregie Uzzi, made the first-team, while LB Julian Burnett was the only Georgia Tech player on the second team.

Two others -- LB Jeremiah Attaochu and CB Rod Sweeting -- were named as honorable mentions.

The two teams playing in the ACC Championship Game Saturday, Virginia Tech and Clemson, dominated, with seventeen players making either the first or second teams.

Uzzi, a 6'3 300 redshirt junior, was a second-team All-ACC performer last season. Since coming to Atlanta as one of the most highly touted recruits in the country, he has been one of the strengths of an offensive line that serves as the backbone for Paul Johnson's triple-option attack.

Burnett, a 5'11 240 junior linebacker, was a sideline-to-sideline force for the Yellow Jackets, racking up 113 tackles this season.

With their regular season over, Georgia Tech now waits to see where they end up in the bowl picture. They are currently rumored to be linked with the Dec. 31 Sun Bowl in El Paso.
