Florida State football players Rashad Greene, Dustin Hopkins and Zebrie Sanders were all selected to the 2011 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Team.
The 52-member team was announced Wednesday morning by Commissioner John Swofford. All 12 ACC schools were represented by at least one selection on the team.
In order to be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average during the fall semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative grade point average during his academic career.
Hopkins earned All-ACC Academic honors for the third consecutive season while Sanders picked up the honor for the second straight season. Greene earned All-ACC Academic honors in his rookie season.
Sanders, a four-year starter who earned his degree in retail merchandising and product development last December, started 50 career games for the Seminoles at offensive tackle. He was an honorable mention All-America selection by Pro Football Weekly and earned first team All-ACC honors.
Greene, a freshman wide receiver majoring in nursing, was named an honorable mention Freshman All-America by College Football News (CFN). He led the Seminoles in catches (38), receiving yards (596) and receiving touchdowns (7) in just nine games played. He capped off his freshman campaign with five catches for 99 yards and TD to earn most valuable player in the Champs Sports Bowl win over Notre Dame.
