ACC Football Kickoff 2011: Montel Harris Named ACC Preseason Player Of The Year

A big congrats to Boston College's Montel Harris, who was named the 2011 ACC Preseason Player of the Year on Monday by a vote of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA). Harris received 26 of a possible 71 first-place votes.

"Harris, who enters this fall with 3,600 career rushing yards, the most of any ACC player after his junior season, as chosen by 26 media representatives, with FSU quarterack EJ Manuel second with 14 votes. Harris' teammate Luke Kuechly, a 2010 unanimous All-America linebacker selection, was third with 12 votes.

This fall, Harris will be chasing the Atlantic Coast Conference career rushing record of 4,602 yards, set in 1978 by NC State All-America Ted Brown."

BC's Harris and Luke Kuechly ran first and third in the ACC Preseason Player of the Year voting, and it most certainly follows that both will be named to the 2011 ACC Football Preseason All-ACC Team on Wednesday. It's clear that the Eagles enter this season with two All-Conference studs on both sides of the ball. Now the question becomes can BC put it all together and prove the one member of the 71-member ACSMA right by winning the ACC in their seventh season in the conference.
