For the first time since 2011, and fourth time since the league expanded in 2004, all four in-state teams are represented on the All-ACC team.

N.C. State leads the way with three players on the first team, Duke has two and North Carolina and Wake Forest have one each.

The Wolfpack, which finished 6-2 in the league and 8-4 overall, placed running back Nyheim Hines, defensive end Bradley Chubb and running back/receiver Jaylen Samuels – in the newly-created all-purpose slot – on the first team.

Two Duke defenders, linebacker Joe Giles-Harris and cornerback Mark Gilbert, were voted by a 45-person panel, which includes the media and the 14 head coaches; as were Wake Forest tight end Cam Serigne and UNC kick returner Anthony Ratliff-Williams.

It’s the most players N.C. State has had on the first team since 2005. Hines has run for 1,040 yards on the season with nine touchdowns. Chubb leads the ACC in sacks (10) and tackles for loss (25). Samuels accumulated 1,109 all-purpose yards and accounted for 15 touchdowns.

Giles-Harris led the Blue Devils, and ranks third in the ACC, with 117 tackles and Gilbert ranks second in the ACC with six interceptions.

Serigne caught eight touchdown passes, most among league tight ends, and Ratliff-Williams led the ACC with two kickoff returns for touchdown.

Clemson, which won the Atlantic Division, led all teams with six first-team selections and 13 players honored (first, second, third teams, honorable mention).

Sophomore defensive tackle Dexter Lawrence of Wake Forest High School was one of three Clemson defensive linemen named to the first team.

Virginia Tech was the only other school to have more first-team selections (four) than N.C. State.

Miami, which won the Coastal Division, had 10 players honored but only kicker Michael Badgley on the first team.
