Georgia Tech’s Dan Dyke, a four-time Verizon Academic All-American and a four-time All-ACC Academic team selection, heads up a list of eight players that are repeaters from last year’s All-Academic team. Other repeaters from the 2001 team are Georgia Tech’s Kelley Rhino, Duke’s Chris Douglas and Shawn Johnson, Clemson’s Khaleed Vaughn, Maryland’s Todd Wike and Georgia Tech’s Jeremy Muyres.
