Tallahassee, FL – Geno Hayes was named a first team All-ACC selection for the second time this week. Earlier it was ACSMA/AP that put Hayes on the All-ACC first team and today Rivals concurred. Hayes is one of four Seminoles to be named All-ACC by Rivals. The other three, Preston Parker, Gary Cismesia and Patrick Robinson, were all named to the second team.
Hayes is tied for 14th in the NCAA in tackles for loss and he leads FSU in solo tackles, tackles behind the line of scrimmage and forced fumbles. He is also second on the team with five sacks. Cismesia, who has tied the ACC record for field goals in a season and who set the record for the longest field goal in ACC history versus Florida, has more field goals this season than any kicker in the ACC and he is nearing 300 points in his illustrious career. Robinson burst onto the national stage this year and is currently tied for 10th in the nation in interceptions per game. The sophomore is just two picks shy of the national lead for total interceptions. He has six pass break-ups to go with his six interceptions. This is the first honor of the season for Parker, who head coach Bobby Bowden has labeled the team’s MVP. Parker leads the team with 1,347 all-purpose yards and is one of the most productive players in the nation among freshman and sophomore wide receivers. The sophomore, who played tailback versus Maryland and rushed for 133 yards, was named to the team as a wideout.
The Seminoles are off this week as they await their bowl destination. As soon as an announcement is made, Seminoles.com will have all the details.
