ACC In The Super Bowl

B.J. Raji
The ACC does have a number of former players in Sunday’s Super Bowl.

Pittsburgh Steelers:  UNC’s Greg Warren (C), Georgia Tech’s Jonathan Dwyer (RB) and Keyaron Fox (LB), Clemson’s Nick Eason (DE), Virginia’s Heath Miller (TE) and James Farrior (LB), Florida State’s Bryant McFadden (CB) and Lawrence Timmons (FS) and Virgiia Tech’s Jason Worilds (LB). Offensive lineman Kyle Jolly of UNC is on the Pittsburgh practice squad.

The Green Bay Packers have nose tackle B.J. Raji of Boston College and cornerback Sam Shields of Miami.

Only one ACC product has ever been the outright Super Bowl MVP – safety Dexter Jackson (FSU) for the Tampa Bay Bucs in 2003.

Dallas defensive lineman Randy White (Maryland) did share the award with teammate Harvey Martin in 1978.
