The ACC announced its All-ACC preseason football team, and a familiar name topped the list.

Sophomore A.J. Dillon was named the ACC Preseason Player of the Year, edging out Clemson’s Christian Wilkins for the honor, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon. Dillon received 45 votes for the award to Wilkins’ 42 votes. NC State quarterback Ryan Finley finished third with 37 votes.

The Eagles open up the season September 1 against Massachusetts at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill.
