Hokie Athletics: 2005 - 2006 ACC Honor Roll

It's always a good thing to read about Hokie student-athletes excelling at that other reason they came to college -- academics, and yesterday I was able to do just that, as the ACC announced its 2005-2006 Academic Honor Roll, recognizing student-athletes from all 12 schools who maintained a 3.0 grade point average or better for the full academic year.

Altogether, more than 2,500 student-athletes in the conference were honored for their hard work in the classroom, with the top representation on the list from one school coming from Duke (of course) with 362 students. Tech placed 177 of their very own on the list, and of those represented by the university, 24 football players made the cut, including starters Sean Glennon, Brandon Pace, and Carlton Powell.
