CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami freshman Duke Johnson was named second-team All-ACC as both a running back and specialist, announced Monday by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA). The 2012 All-ACC teams were voted on by 46 ACSMA members.
Johnson, a five-time ACC Rookie of the Week honoree, posted one of the best all-around freshman seasons in program history, accumulating 2,070 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns in 2012. Johnson rushed for a Miami freshman-record 947 yards and 10 TD’s, while amassing the second-most all-purpose yards in program history.
The Miami, Fla., product also set a Miami single-season record with 892 kick return yards and two touchdowns on 27 tries. He leads the ACC with a 33.04 kick return average – the fourth-best in FBS. His 947 rushing yards are the fourth-most among FBS freshmen, and he is tied as the national leader with 11 all-purpose plays of 50+ yards.
Johnson picked up 47 points as a second-team running back and 44 as a specialist.
Four Hurricanes received honorable mention honors – redshirt sophomore LG Jon Feliciano, junior RT Seantrel Henderson, junior RG Brandon Linder and sophomore LB Denzel Perryman. Feliciano and Linder started all 12 games along the offensive line in 2012, while Henderson started the season’s final seven games at right tackle. Perryman played in nine games, including five starts at middle linebacker and one at outside linebacker. The hard-hitting Perryman finished second on the team with 64 tackles.
Three Canes were named to the 2011 All-ACC Team by ACSMA – LB Sean Spence (first team), C Tyler Horn (second team) and RB Lamar Miller (second team).
Clemson, Florida State and North Carolina dominate the 2012 All-ACC Football first team. The league announced its all-conference team Monday and six offensive players from the 15th-ranked Tigers made the first team. The 13th-ranked Seminoles and Tar Heels had five players apiece.

Great accomplishment for only his first year! The sky's the limit for this kid!
This is a deep class for running backs in the ACC this year! Will be interesting moving forward!

That is BS...Benard made first team for running back and specialist...They could have given that to Duke. I'm so pissed off!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Who is rookie of the year?
We should have some 1st team selections next year. Remember we didn't have any. Only thing that puzzles me is how Morris didn't get selected or honorable mention when his numbers were better that Manuel and Glennon
I'm still confused as to why there are 3 noles OL that made All-ACC. Shouldn't be any IMO. Did the voters watch the games this year? I'd take our OL over FSU's every day of the week.

Will be announced later this week.
I'm shocked that no O-Linemen from our team made the the 1st team or 2nd team,
We have the best O-Line in the ACC.
DUKE...2nd Best... I don't think so!! Don't care how many yards Gio gets.. Duke does it in a million ways...
Duke is THE MAN!!!!!!
gio an get it this year but watch next year duke will murder the game with him in the nfl
Fu*k the voters, our oline is BEAST!!!
We got screwed with our O-line QB Dorsett should be Honarable mention
As of Giovanni that joker is the REAL DEAL he did all that with being suspended his first 2 games i have no problem with him being 1st team RB and specialist... Duke would be his back up if he decided to play here he's that damn GOOD
"Can you smeeeeeeeeeeeeeelll what the Link is cookin"
lol @ David Amerson being All ACC
Dorsett's still open!
University of Miami Class of 2013
lol thats too funny
LMAO!!!! Joven you are on a roll my friend. I think Duke will use the second team placement as motivation for next season. Watch and see what he does in the weight room this off season. Hard working and hungry!!
Duke had a great year
but Gio deserved it guys....dude is unreal, UNC wouldnt have won at all without him
lol whats funny is that the top 3 wrs from tennessee bombed him thats their nfl highlight reels going up against a bonafied safety
To be honest the Acc has alot of great lineman.... Alot. But I think the places should of been a little different
The voters messed up the specialists vote. Duke should be 1st team & Stefon Diggs should be 2nd team. Both were simply electrifying this year with the ball in their hands.
