Dontayvion Wicks and Jelani Woods Named First-Team All-ACC

Virginia placed seven players on All-ACC Football Teams

The Atlantic Coast Conference announced its All-ACC Football Teams for the 2021 season on Tuesday and Virginia was represented with seven players on the first, second, and third teams.

Dontayvion Wicks was named First-Team All-ACC, becoming the first UVA wide receiver to do so since Olamide Zaccheaus in 2018. Wicks recorded 57 receptions for 1,203 receiving yards and nine touchdowns this season.

Joining Wicks on the All-ACC Offensive First Team was Jelani Woods, whose eight touchdowns and 598 receiving yards made him the first Cavalier tight end to be named First-Team All-ACC since 2008, when John Phillips did it.

Virginia placed three players on the All-ACC Second Team: Keytaon Thompson, Olusegun Oluwatimi, and Nick Jackson. Thompson received 77 votes as an all-purpose player after racking up 1,220 all-purpose yards this season. Oluwatimi was named Second-Team All-ACC after also winning an ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week award following Virginia’s victory over Illinois in week two. Nick Jackson led the ACC in tackles with 117 and was named to the All-ACC Second Team Defense.

Billy Kemp IV had the fifth-most receptions in the conference with 75, as well as 742 receiving yards and six touchdowns. Kemp was named to the All-ACC Third Team alongside quarterback Brennan Armstrong, who led the ACC in passing yards with 4,449 yards, nearly 400 more yards than the next closest quarterback. 

UVA also had one All-ACC honorable mention in offensive lineman Bobby Haskins.
