Virginia Tech freshman Kendall Fuller has been named the ACC's defensive rookie of the year.
The youngest Fuller brother led the team with 6 interceptions and led the conference with 16 passes defended. Kendall also tallied 56 tackles including 37 solo stops. His play was huge for a team that had all kinds of injury issues in the secondary.
He started 11 games and played in all 12 becoming the first Hokie to ever win the award. Fuller was named on 25 of the 40 ballots.
Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was named the Offensive and Overall Rookie of the Year.
Winston threw for nearly 35 hundred yards and 35 touchdowns for the Seminoles this season leading FSU to the ACC Championship game, and possibly the national championship game with a win over Duke on Saturday night.
Speaking of the Blue Devils, to no one's surprise, David Cutcliffe has been named the ACC's Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season. He led Duke to its first 10 win season ever and a spot in the conference title game. Cutcliffe garnered 62 of a possible 65 votes for the award. Boston College Coach Steve Adazzio got two votes and Florida State's Jimbo Fisher the other. It marks the first time the Blue Devils have had back to back conference coach of the year winners since Steve Spurrier in 1988 and 1989.
