Jameis Winston and Florida State will be the face of the ACC for another year.
The Florida State quarterback headlined the All-ACC preseason team, as the league released selections Wednesday. The Seminoles led all teams with nine players making the squad of 26 players.
Duke tied for second with four selections.
Safety Jeremy Cash and linebacker Kelby Brown represented the Blue Devils defense. Brown was second in the ACC in tackles per game last season, trailing only teammate David Helton, and received 74 votes. Cash, an Ohio State transfer, will look to further his impact from Duke’s “striker” position after ranking fourth in the conference in tackles per game and second in total tackles.
Receiver Jamison Crowder made the team after a 2013 season in which he set the ACC single-season record for receptions with 108. He is joined by redshirt senior guard Laken Tomlinson as the second half of Duke’s offensive representatives.
North Carolina’s Ryan Switzer made the team as the conference’s top return man.
N.C. State was not represented.
