2011 Preseason ACC Offensive Player of the Year

Montel Harris, RB Boston College
Returning for one final season as the workhorse is Harris, a 5-10, 200-pound senior who’s primed to leave the program with just about every rushing record. He’s been a starter since his freshman season, running for 1,243 yards and eight touchdowns on 269 carries a year ago. A methodical, between-the-tackles runner, he’s not the fastest or most elusive backs around, but he hits the hold quickly, will break through tackles, and has a knack for getting better late in games. He is the face of the 2011 Eagle offense.

2011 Preseason ACC Defensive Player of the Year
 
Luke Kuechly, LB Boston College
In just two seasons removed from St. Xavier (OH) High School, Kuechly has evolved into one of the nation’s premier defenders. With machine-like consistency, he’s posted at least 10 tackles in 22 consecutive games. A year ago, he raised the bar off an improbable debut, leading the country with 183 stops and adding 10.5 tackles for loss, three picks, and three fumble recoveries. A 6-3, 235-pound guided missile in the middle, he has uncanny instincts and field awareness, and impeccable wrap-up skills in the open field.
