The ACC announced its All-ACC teams today, and three Georgia Tech players were honored. Senior running back Anthony Allen and senior center Sean Bedford made the first team, and sophomore offensive guard Omoregie Uzzie made the second team. This marks the fifth straight year at least two players have made the first team.â†µ
This is Bedford's second straight year on the first team, as the Aerospace Engineering major completes a remarkable career. The former walk-on converted from defensive lineman before becoming a standout center.â†µ
Allen's honor marks the fourth straight year a Georgia Tech running back has been named to the first team. Tashard Choice earned the award in 2007, and Jonathan Dwyer earned it the last two years. The former transfer from Louisville ranks 19th nationally in rushing, and has led the Jackets to a national best 327 yards per game.â†µ
This year was Uzzi's first year starting on the offensive line. The former Chamblee high school star will be in a leadership on the line next year.â†µ
