Brown,Gano,Hudson & Rolle Pre-Season All-ACC

Florida State tied for the league lead with four players selected to the team.

Greensboro, GA – The 2008 ACC Football Kick-Off came to an official conclusion Wednesday with the release of the media's 2008 pre-season All-ACC football team. Florida State was represented by four players, which was tied for the most with Clemson and Wake Forest. Guard Rodney Hudson was the only Seminole named to the team on the offensive side of the ball. Both Everette Brown and Myron Rolle received pre-season honors for the defense, making FSU one of just four teams with two players named to the pre-season All-ACC defensive team. Graham Gano was named the league's top punter heading into the 2008 season.


This is the first All-ACC pre-season honor for three Seminoles but the second straight year Rolle has been named a pre-season All-ACC selection. Last season Florida State had three players named to the pre-season team. Gano is the only senior among Florida State's four selections while Hudson joins Wake Forest's Josh Adams as the only sophomore selections.
