Greensboro, NC –
Florida State fans can find out in person if one of the six former Seminoles selected among the Top 50 all-time male athletes finished among the Top 10 by joining ACC fans at the ACC Gala to be held in Greensboro, NC on March 12. The highlight of the ACC’s year-long 50th Anniversary Celebration, the gala will feature a professionally produced ESPY’s-style show sandwiched between the women’s and men’s ACC basketball tournaments.
50TH ANNIVERSARY GALA
The two-hour Gala show will feature the great stories of the past 50 years of the Atlantic Coast Conference, featuring the coaches, the athletes and the administrators who created the ACC’s history and heritage. A key component of the evening will be the announcement of the Top 10 Male and Female Athletes in ACC history. Derrick Brooks, J.D. Drew, Warrick Dunn, Charlie Ward, Peter Warrick and Chris Weinke all made the list of the Top 50 all-time greatest male athletes in ACC history so they each have a chance to be named the greatest male athlete of all-time at the gala.
