Florida State Leads Conference With Eight All-ACC Selections

Dec. 7, 2004

The All-ACC team was released Tuesday afternoon and Florida State led the way with a total of eight first and second team All-ACC selections. Offensive tackle Alex Barron, defensive tackle Travis Johnson and cornerback Antonio Cromartie were voted to the All-ACC first team. Representing the Seminoles on the All-ACC second team were tailback Leon Washington, wide receiver Chauncey Stovall, defensive end Chauncey Davis, linebacker Ernie Sims and cornerback Bryant McFadden. Following FSU in terms of first and second team All-ACC picks were Virginia (seven), Virginia Tech (six) and Miami (six).

“We are happy for our players who have been honored,” said head coach Bobby Bowden. “With the way the conference race went this year, I suspect that everyone realizes just how good the football has become in this league.”

Four more Seminoles were recognized as All-ACC honorable mention selections: offensive tackle Ray Willis, defensive end Eric Moore, linebacker A.J. Nicholson and safety Pat Watkins.

“It’s a great honor to be voted All-ACC first team,” said senior Travis Johnson. “There are so many great players in the conference, especially now with Miami and Virginia Tech coming in, that it really means a great deal to be listed along with some of the best players in the country. Obviously, our season didn’t go as well as we had hoped but all we can do is go out in the Gator Bowl and finish on a strong note.”

Last year in the nine-team Atlantic Coast Conference, Florida State tied for second in the league with a total of seven first and second team All-ACC selections.
