    RALEIGH, N.C. - Six members of the 2013 Wolfpack football squad were named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Football Team, the league office announced this morning.  Only Duke had more student-athletes named to the list than NC State, while the Pack’s six honorees was the most since 1971.

    To be eligible for consideration for the squad, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career. A student-athlete in graduate school must maintain a 3.5 grade point average. The ACC has selected an All-ACC Academic Football team every year since 1954.

    Senior linebacker Zach Gentry earned the honor for the second time, as he was also an All-ACC Academic performer following the 2012 campaign.  Five of the six honorees were starters for Dave Doeren’s squad in 2013, while two - Bryant Shirreffs and Jack Tocho - were true freshmen.  

    Here’s a list of the Wolfpack’s members of the 2013 All-ACC Academic Football Team:
    Zach Gentry, LB - Business Administration
    Andy Jomantas, OG - Sport Management
    Brandon Mitchell, QB - Family & Youth Development
    Tyler Purvis, FB - Economics
    Bryant Shirreffs, QB - Business Administration
    Jack Tocho, CB - Business Administration
