The five others, according to the ACC, are Clemson junior wide receiver Sammy Watkins, Georgia Tech junior defensive back Jamal Golden, Miami sophomore running back Duke Johnson, Virginia Tech junior rover Kyshoen Jarrett and Wake Forest senior wide receiver Michael Campanaro (River Hill).
The award is given by by the Louisville Sports Commission and former NFL star (and Louisville native) Paul Hornung. Overall, there are 19 seniors, 21 juniors and four sophomores on the list. Nine are from the Southeastern Conference.
