Harvin finished second in the ACC in punting at 44.1 yards per punt, which was also the fifth-highest average in Tech history. Harvin was effective punting for height, distance and direction, helping Tech’s coverage team pin returners. Tech ranks 31st nationally and fourth in the ACC in net punting at 39.74 yards per punt. He is Tech’s first specialist to win All-ACC honors since kicker Travis Bell and punter Durant Brooks were named to the All-ACC team in 2007.
The team was voted on by a panel of 45 media members and the league’s 14 coaches. Clemson had 13 players on the team. Tech’s three selections were third fewest, behind Louisville and North Carolina, which had two each.
Among other Tech players, center Kenny Cooper was probably the most deserving of consideration.
