All-ACC Teams Announced

The season has come to an end for the Tar Heels, as they wait to see where they might play in a bowl for the 2013-2014 season.

Even though the Tar Heels season didn't go quite what they had hoped for, there were several players that received honors for their play this season for North Carolina.

Monday afternoon, the All-ACC teams were announced, as a few names made it on the list for their outstanding year on the field.

Here are the names that made the list for the 2013-2014 season:

Eric Ebron - 1st Team All ACC

- Ebron had not only one of the best season for the Tar Heels at the tight end position, but in ACC history, as he was able to break the previous mark in receiving yards in a season for a tight end last week against Duke (Vernon Davis held that mark before Ebron).

Ebron finished the season with 55 receptions and 895 yards, scoring three touchdowns. Ebron will enter the NFL Draft.

James Hurst - 1st Team All ACC

- Hurst was a leader for the Tar Heels both for the offensive line and for the offense in general all year long. As a senior, he has had to deal with a lot of different situations, with the infractions against North Carolina and starting off the season at 1-5. However, Hurst was one of the key players and a leader for the Tar Heels and will be looking to finish off the season with a bang. Hurst should be a prospect taken in the NFL Draft.

Kareem Martin - 1st Team All ACC

- Kareem came in as the leader on the defensive side of the ball and was able to produce a strong front line, which really came on at the end of the season. For the season, Martin finished with 78 total tackles (44 solo, 34 assisted) and had 20 tackles for loss. He also was able to rack up 11 sacks on the season, with his biggest game coming against Pittsburgh, where he recorded 3.5 sacks. For his career, Martin finished with 174 tackles and 19 sacks.

Ryan Switzer - 1st Team All ACC

Switzer started off the year rough, as he had some tough times getting into the end zone (with early penalties taking away some of his touchdown returns). But the freshman became one of the best special team returners in the country, averaging just less than 20 yards per return (21 returns for 419 yards) and having four of them returned for a touchdown. Also, Switzer became a dynamic player all over the field, as he also recorded 310 receiving yards (three touchdowns) and also threw for another touchdown. Switzer should be one a true bright spot in the future for the Tar Heels.

Tre Boston - 2nd Team All ACC

- Boston has seen it all and has been a solid player for the Tar Heels in his career. He has been a leader in the secondary for the Tar Heels, who had trouble at times defending the pass and giving up big plays. Boston finished the season with four interceptions and had 85 tackles on the season (45 solo/ 40 assisted). For his career, Boston finished with 273 tackles and had 12 interceptions while playing at Chapel Hill.

Honorable Mention - These are players that just missed the cut for All ACC:

Quinshad Davis

Russell Bodine

Norkeithus Otis

Jabari Price

Tommy Hibbard
