Dec. 11, 2013
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - Virginia football player Anthony Harris was named to the All-Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) football first team, as selected by the league’s 14 head coaches. Running back Kevin Parks and offensive tackle Morgan Moses were both named to the second team. The 2013 season is the second season the league’s coaches have selected their own all-conference team. UVa has placed at least one member on the first and second-team each season.
Harris was named to the media’s All-ACC first team last week, while Parks took home second team honors from the media. Moses was a third team honoree last week by the media and is a repeat recipient on the coaches team after being an honorable mention in 2012.
Harris (Chesterfield, Va.) leads the nation with eight interceptions, which included a UVa record five-straight games with a pick. The eight interceptions place Harris in a three-way tie with Ronde Barber (1994) and Kevin Cook (1987) for No. 2 all-time at UVa for picks in a season. Harris finished the regular season No. 5 in the ACC with 1.2 passes defended per game and is No. 24 in the ACC overall in tackles. Harris started the season with a key block and second-half interception in UVa's season-opening win over BYU. The effort earned Harris the accolade of the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week.
Parks (Salisbury, N.C.) became the first Cavalier to rush for at least 1,000 yards in a season since Alvin Pearman did so in 2004. The junior finished with 1,031 yards, which ranks No. 12 all-time at UVa for rushing yards in a season. Parks is No. 2 in the ACC with 1,031 total rushing yards and 85.9 rushing yards per game, while he ranks No. 2 among ACC running backs with 113.5 all-purpose yards per game. Parks concludes his junior season ranked No. 8 all-time at UVa with 2,474 career rushing yards and No. 7 all-time at UVa with 25 career rushing touchdowns.
Moses (Richmond, Va.), an early invite to the 2014 Senior Bowl, started all 12 games at left tackle and finished his UVa career with 43 starts between both tackles positions and right guard. Moses was a key blocking component to help Parks became UVa's first 1,000-yard rusher in a season since 2004. The senior graded out over 90 percent in every game and averaged eight knockdowns per contest. Moses yielded only two sacks in 506 pass attempts, which included limiting Clemson's Vic Beasley (Bednarik and Lombardi Award semifinalists) to one tackle and zero sacks.
