Four Canes land on ACC First Team

Congratulations are in order for the four Hurricanes who made the All-ACC First Team Monday. They are cornerback Brandon Harris, defensive end Allen Bailey, left tackle Jason Fox and kicker Matt Bosher. Linebackers Darryl Sharpton and Colin McCarthy both made the Second Team.

The four first team selections are the most for UM since 2005. The Canes, who didn't have any player make the first team a year ago, placed only one player on the first team the previous three seasons (Kenny Phillips in 2007, Calais Campbell and Greg Olsen in 2006).

Three Canes were honored earlier Monday with ACC Player of the Week honors: Bosher, Shaprton and offensive lineman Orlando Franklin. Here's a look at the all-conference teams as selected by the ACC media.
