Ljubomir Stamenich (#91) is congratulated by teammates after a quarterback sack vs. North Carolina last season.
Routzahn, a junior guard from Middletown, Md., was one of the leaders along the offensive line who helped pave the way for the ACC's leading rusher, Antwoine Womack. One of the top linemen in the nation who doesn't get the attention he deserves, Routzahn will look to start for the third year in a row this fall.
Stamenich, a junior defensive end from Great Falls, Va., was the Cavaliers' leading pass rusher last season with four sacks. A starter the last two years, he led UVa defensive tackles with 47 stops last fall.
Florida State's Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke is one of one of eight players on the academic squad who earned first or second team All-ACC recognition this past fall. Other All-ACC selections named are Clemson's Kyle Young and Will Merritt, Duke's Mike Hart, Florida State's Justin Amman, Jarad Moon and Chris Hope and North Carolina's Jeff Reed.
Weinke and Young are among six players repeating from last year. The others are Duke's Ben Erdeljac, Clemson's Chad Carson, Florida State's Chris Hope and Georgia Tech's Dan Dyke.
