Kamren Kinchens established himself as top-of-the-line safeties within the nation this 12 months and now he has a postseason accolade to associate with it.
Kinchens and Lou Hedley both earned first-team All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors from the league, giving the Miami Hurricanes a number of gamers on the all-conference first workforce regardless of a shedding season.
A sophomore, Kinchens completed the common season tied for the highest spot within the nation with six interceptions and Hedley is a semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award after averaging the second most yards per punt within the ACC.
This is the primary first-team all-conference choice for each Kinchens and Hedley, though Hedley, a redshirt senior, earned second-team All-ACC honors in every of the final two seasons, in addition to second-team All-American honors from the Associated Press in 2020.
In all, Miami positioned 10 gamers on the All-ACC groups and honorable-mentions checklist. Tight finish Will Mallory was a second-team all-conference choice, and working again Henry Parrish Jr. and cornerback Tyrique Stevenson each earned third-team All-ACC nods.
Mallory, a senior, led the Hurricanes with 42 catches and 538 receiving yards, and completed his profession tied for this system file for touchdowns by a good finish with 14. Parrish, a sophomore, led Miami with 130 carries and 616 speeding yards after transferring in from the Ole Miss Rebels in January. Stevenson, a junior, had 25 tackles, 1 1/2 tackles for loss, two interceptions and 7 passes defended.
Offensive linemen DJ Scaife Jr. and Jalen Rivers, defensive linemen Leonard Taylor III and Akheem Mesidor, and kicker Andres Borregales had been All-ACC honorable mentions.
The 10 all-conference honorees are the Hurricanes’ most in 4 years and seven of 10 — all however Hedley, Mallory and Scaife — have eligibility remaining and may very well be again in Coral Gables subsequent 12 months.
