Boston College Football: Six Eagles Earn All-ACC Recognition From Coaches

The accolades continue to roll in for the dudes ...

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

On Tuesday, six Eagles earned All-ACC Team honors, as determined by the league's 14 coaches. Center Andy Gallik led the way for the Eagles as a second-team selection. Offensive guard Bobby Vardaro, running back Jon Hilliman, defensive tackle Connor Wujciak and linebacker Josh Keyes were named to the third team, while offensive tackle Ian Silberman earned honorable mention honors.

Gallik was edged out for first-team honors by Miami senior center Shane McDermott by a single vote: 22 to 21. The Evergreen Park, Illinois native was named to the All-ACC First Team by the media and is a finalist for the Rimington Trophy, given to the nation's top center. McDermott earned a first-team spot on the Coaches' All-ACC team but only an honorable mention by the ACSMA. Disagreed with this selection.

The coaches also handed out the Offensive Player, Defensive Player, Coach, Offensive Rookie and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards. Freshman running back Jon Hilliman received one vote for Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Here are all the honorees:
