Anthony Harris

July 23, 2014

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia strong safety Anthony Harris was named to the 26-man preseason All-ACC team the league announced on Wednesday. Media attending the 2014 ACC Football Kickoff at Greensboro’s Grandover Resort July 20-21 selected the team.

Harris (Chesterfield, Va., Sr.) joins Clemson’s defensive end Vic Beasley as the only defensive All-Americans from 2013 that made the preseason All-ACC team.  Six total ACC players with All-America honors in 2013 made the list.

Harris is a preseason All-American after also earning All-America honors in 2013 from Sports Illustrated (first) and Walter Camp (second). Harris has also been named to the preseason Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List, the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List, the preseason Bednarik Award Watch List and the preseason Jim Thorpe Award Watch List. Harris led the nation with eight interceptions and set a UVa record with at least one interception in five straight games. CFPA listed Harris on its preseason 42-man watch list for its defensive back of the year.
