Four NC State football players earn All-ACC honors

No Wolfpack player made the first team, though.

NC State had four players earn postseason all-conference honors, though I’m sure no one will be surprised to learn that none of them landed on the first team. And half of them are special teams players. Figures, doesn’t it, that State finally gets the special teams sorted out only to have everything else fall apart.

Defensive tackle Larrell Murchison leads the way for the Pack with a second-team All-ACC nod. The Murch Man led NC State with seven sacks in 2019, which is more sacks than anybody on the team managed in 2018. Not bad for an interior guy.

Placekicker Chris Dunn also earned a second-team nod after connecting on 21-24 field goal attempts. For his career, Dunn is 44-50 on field goals.

Trenton Gill led the ACC with an average of 47.6 yards per punt but that was only good enough to put him on the third team, behind the guys from Syracuse and Wake Forest.

And Cary Angeline earned an honorable mention for his season—he led NC State in touchdown receptions with five and was fourth in receiving yardage with 379.

Clemson led everybody this year with eight first-team All-ACC selections.
