Burris, Thuney, Moore Named Academic All-ACC

RALEIGH, N.C. - Three members of the 2015 Wolfpack football squad have been named to the 2015 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Football Team according to the league office. All-American offensive tackle Joe Thuney, linebacker Airius Moore and cornerback Juston Burris were named to the prestigious list.

Thuney earned mention for this second time in his illustrious career. A 2015 USA Today first-team All-American, he earned his degree prior to his junior campaign and has pursued a second undergraduate degree in international studies. Also a member of the All-ACC team, Thuney did not allow a sack during ACC play last season.  He was semifinalist for the National Football Foundation's Campbell Trophy, given to the nation's top student-athlete.

Burris was a 3-1/2 year starter for the Wolfpack at cornerback, starting 43 career contests. He graduated in December of 2014 with a degree in business administration.

Moore, a sophomore linebacker, was the Wolfpack's leading tackler in 2015, tallying 77 stops.  He started every contest, both at middle and weakside linebacker and excelled in his social work major.

To be eligible for consideration to the squad, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career. A student-athlete in graduate school must maintain a 3.5 grade point average.
