Pitt places two on All-ACC football first team
Pitt junior offensive tackle Brian O'Neill and senior punter Ryan Winslow were named Monday to the All-ACC first team after combined balloting by the conference's 14 head coaches and 45 media members.
O'Neill, who started 38 games the past three seasons, was a second-team All-ACC selection by the coaches (third-team by the media) last year. A former tight end, he also recorded three carries the past two seasons, gaining 39 yards with two touchdowns.
Winslow, a four-year starter, led the ACC in punting this season, averaging a career-best 44.5 yards.
Wide receiver/returner Quadree Henderson, a junior, was named to the All-ACC second team and cornerback Avonte Maddox was a third-team choice. Henderson returned two punts for touchdowns this season, giving him a Pitt-record seven kick return touchdowns in three years.
Earning honorable mention were guards Alex Bookser and Alex Officer, Henderson (in the all-purpose category), linebacker Seun Idowu and safety Jordan Whitehead.
