Amerson, Graham Named First Team All-ACC
Nov. 28, 2011
Raleigh, N.C. - NC State sophomore cornerback David Amerson and senior returner T.J. Graham were both named first-team All-ACC on Monday as announced by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA). Junior linebacker Terrell Manning and senior tight end George Bryan were both named second-team All-ACC.
Amerson currently leads the nation with his 11 interceptions on the season. Last week, he was named one of three finalists for the Thorpe Award.
Graham has already secured the ACC record for most kickoff return yards during a career. He earned honorable mention honors as a kick returner as a freshman in 2008.
Manning was named the ACC Linebacker of the Week for his performance against Maryland. He caused a pair of fumbles in the Clemson win last week, and this past week against Maryland he recovered a pair of fumbles.
Bryan, who earned first-team All-ACC honors each of the last two seasons, posted a season-high eight catches in the Pack's win over Maryland. He already has the most receptions among any tight end in school history, and currently ranks eighth overall.
