Eight Hurricanes on 2006 ACC Academic Football Team

Feb. 13, 2007

Coral Gables, Fla. (www. hurricanesports.com) – – Eight members of the 2006 Miami Hurricanes football team were named to the ACC Academic Football Team that was released today by the ACC, a total that is the highest in the conference. The Hurricanes honored were: G Andrew Bain, OT Jason Fox, TE Greg Olsen, PK Jon Peattie, S Kenny Phillips, LB Darryl Sharpton, WR Sam Shields, and C Anthony Wollschlager.

Miami’s eight selections topped Boston College and Duke, which had six each, and Florida State, which had four. Every ACC school had at least one member. To be eligible, a player must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the fall semester or have maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career. Peattie has been selected three straight years.

“I guess we’re not a football factory anymore. We’re an academic factory now,” said head coach Randy Shannon. “You have to give a lot of credit to our academic staff. This university and football program attract a lot of great student-athletes that will be successful in life, and we are proud of that.”
