Seven Georgia Tech Players Earn All-ACC Honors

Georgia Tech had seven players recognized for their on-field performance

With the season ending on Saturday, it wasn't going to be long before the All-ACC selections would be announced for the 2022 season. They were released today and Georgia Tech had seven players make the cut for the All-Conference team. 

The Yellow Jackets All-ACC selections were led by linebacker Ace Eley, who made the second team. A host of Georgia Tech defenders made the cut for the third team. Charlie Thomas, LaMiles Brooks, and Keion White were the third-team selections.

Brooks led the Yellow Jackets and ranked third in the ACC with three interceptions on the season. Brooks finished the year with the fourth-most tackles on the team, making 52 stops, including 2.5 for loss. He also broke up seven passes to finish with 10 passes defended and recovered a fumble.

Thomas was always an impact player on the field. He ranked second in the conference in solo tackles with 71, fifth in total tackles with 112, and fumbles recovered with two. He also finished top-20 in the league in tackles for loss (10.5).

McCollum was the leading receiver for Georgia Tech this season and had 60 catches for over 600 yards. His 60 catches are the most for a Yellow Jacket since the great Calvin Johnson. 

Hall ranked 15th in the ACC with 900 all-purpose yards (521 rushing, 165 receiving, and 214 kicking return yards). Hall is one of just two players in the conference with 500 rushing yards, 150 receiving yards, and 200 kickoff return yards.

Walton finished with 36 tackles, six pass breakups, and one interception.
