Georgia Tech offensive linemen Parker Braun and Andrew Marshall, defensive end Rod Rook-Chungong and wide receiver Brad Stewart were named to the academic All-ACC football team.

Rook-Chungong, a senior who graduated in December with a degree in literature, media and communication, started all 13 games this past season. Stewart, a sophomore, also started all 13 games and is majoring in mechanical engineering.
