The Associated Press released its own version of the All-ACC football teams on Monday, selecting four Tar Heels as part of its Second Team.
Wide receiver Ryan Switzer was named as part of the offensive selections, joining right tackle Jon Heck and center Lucas Crowley.
Although he did most of his work for UNC this season as a tailback, TJ Logan earned his spot on the All-ACC Second Team as an “all-purpose player” for his overall versatility as a runner and as a receiver–not to mention his outstanding work as a kick returner.
The Greensboro product ran back a pair of kickoffs for touchdowns in 2016, while setting the all-time UNC mark with four in his career.
Switzer, meanwhile, set a school record with 91 receptions during the regular season. He also became just the third receiver in Tar Heel history to gain at least 1,000 yards in a single campaign.
When the ACC released its official All-Conference teams last week, Switzer was the only UNC player to be among the league’s First Team selections.
UNC battled a plethora of injury problems on its offensive line in 2016, but Crowley was a consistent bright spot. He never missed a game, and was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week three times.
Heck, on the other hand, missed a short period of time during the middle of the season. When healthy, though, he played a major part in providing quarterback Mitch Trubisky time to work his magic.
The Tar Heels did not have anyone named to the AP All-ACC First Team. Clemson and Florida State dominated that list by combining to have 13 of the 26 players bestowed with that honor.
