The media voted and named its 2014 All-ACC Football team featuring several Hokies.

Sophomore corner Kendall Fuller was no surprised on the first team defense. Fuller finished with 50 tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss and two sacks on the season. He also had a team-high 15 pass deflections, two interceptions and a fumble recovery.

Junior defensive end Dadi Nicolas was oddly left to the second team on defense. Nicolas finished 2014 with 63 tackles, 17.5 for loss and nine sacks. He also posted a team-high 34 quarterback hurries.

Fellow defensive end Ken Ekanem was named to the third team after eight-and-a-half sacks himself. His 13.5 tackles for loss and 19 QB hurries were behind Nicolas' marks.

Defensive tackle Corey Marshall joins Ekanem on the third team defense after finishing second for Tech with 23 quarterback hurries. Marshall had 39 tackles despite making just nine starts.

Freshman tight end Bucky Hodges had a tremendous season for the Hokies, but his performance earned only third team All-ACC honors. Hodges was third on the team with 42 catches for 517 yards and a team-high seven touchdowns.

Nigel Williams and Luther Maddy on defense plus Isaiah Ford on offense all earned honorable mention All-ACC.
