Pitt shut out on preseason all-ACC team

  • July 23, 2014

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) – Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston is one of nine Florida State players on the preseason all-Atlantic Coast Conference team.

The ACC announced its preseason team Wednesday following a vote of media members covering its media days earlier in the week.

Winston was joined by five teammates on the offense – including receiver Rashad Greene, tight end Nick O’Leary, running back Karlos Williams and two offensive linemen.

No one from Pitt was selected.

The defending national champion Seminoles were overwhelming picks to repeat as ACC champions in separate voting by media members.

Miami running back Duke Johnson was the other running back and Duke’s Jamison Crowder and Louisville’s DeVante Parker were the other receivers.
