ACC All-Academic Football Team

Anthony Castonzo
The ACC's statistical leaders in total offense, field goals and touchdown responsibility and nine student-athletes who earned first-team, second-team or honorable mention All-Conference honors this past season secured spots on the 52-member 2010 All-ACC Academic Football Team, announced Thursday by Commissioner John Swofford.

To be eligible for consideration, 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. All 12 ACC schools were represented by at least one selection on the team.

Leading the team were Boston College All-America offensive tackle Anthony Castonzo (Hawthorn Woods, Ill.), Duke placekicker Will Snyderwine (Potomac, Md.), Maryland placekicker-punter Travis Baltz (Whitehouse, Ohio), Florida State senior quarterback Christian Ponder (Coffeyville, Tex.), and NC State junior quarterback Russell Wilson (Richmond, Va.).

In all, nine members of the All-ACC Academic team earned some kind of All-ACC Football recognition led by Castonzo, a two-time, first-team honoree. Five earned second-team All-ACC selection in NC State's Wilson, Duke's Snyderwine, Miami free safety Ray-Ray Armstrong (Sanford, Fla.); Virginia Tech defensive tackle John Graves (Richmond, Va.) and Virginia Tech running back-kick returner David Wilson (Danville, Va.).
