CORAL GABLES, Fl. – Eight Miami Hurricanes were among those recognized with all-conference honors, the Atlantic Coast Conference announced Tuesday.
Headlined by three selections to the All-ACC Second Team, Miami had players from every class featured in the postseason honors list.
Wide receiver Charleston Rambo, offensive lineman DJ Scaife Jr., and punter Lou Hedley were each selected to the All-ACC Second Team.
Five more Hurricanes were bestowed with ACC Honorable Mention recognition: running back Jaylan Knighton, offensive lineman Zion Nelson, cornerback Tyrique Stevenson, safety James Williams and kicker Andy Borregales.
Rambo put together one of the most dominant seasons by a Hurricane offensive player in program history. Rambo set the single-season mark for both receptions (79) and yards (1,172) and finished with a team-high seven touchdowns.
Scaife saw action in all 12 games during the regular season and made nine starts on the right side of the offensive line. The Hurricanes ranked fifth in the ACC in both scoring offense (34.1) and yards per game (448.3) in 2021.
Hedley, a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award honoring the nation’s top punter, ranked No. 3 in the ACC in punting (44.94). He had 11 punts of at least 50 yards and landed 19 of his punts inside the opponents’ 20-yard line over the course of the year.
