RALEIGH, N.C. – Three NC State players were named to the Associated Press All-ACC team. Defensive lineman Larrell Murchison, placekicker Christopher Dunn and punter Trenton Gill were all second-team selections.
 
Murchison was forced to play multiple positions on the Pack's defensive line this season due to the injuries. He led NC State with seven sacks and 12 tackles for loss on the season, while finishing with 48 tackles overall. His sack total was seventh-best in the ACC, and he ranked 11th in TFLs.
 
Dunn connected on 21-of-24 fields goals this season, with an 87.5 percent conversion rate that ranked 10th in the NCAA and second-best in the ACC. His 21 made field goals ranks eighth nationally, and is also the second-best mark in the conference and is second in school history only behind his mark of 23 from last season. A Lou Groza Award semifinalist, Dunn made 11 straight field goals to end the season, with his last miss coming Sept. 28.
 
In his first season as the Wolfpack's starting punter, Gill led the ACC and ranked fourth nationally with a punting average of 47.6 yards per punt. That average is a new school record, topping the previous mark of 46.1 yards per punt back in 1975. Twenty-four of his 56 punts this season went for 50+ yards, with a season-best of 75.
