Four Noles earn preseason All-ACC honors

Four Florida State players made the list when the preseason All-ACC team was named Wednesday. Included on the team:

  • Brandon Jenkins, defensive end: The senior is on preseason watch lists for four national awards: Nagurski, Bednarik, Lombardi and Walter Camp.

  • Lamarcus Joyner, safety: The junior is on three watch lists: Nagurski, Bednarik and Thorpe.

  • Dustin Hopkins, kicker: The senior needs 68 points to set the conference scoring record.

  • Greg Reid, kick returner: The senior cornerback, who was arrested earlier this month and awaits a decision from coach Jimbo Fisher on any team punishment that he might face, ranks fifth in punt-return yardage in conference history and needs 180 yards to set the record.
