Three Syracuse Orange were placed on the All-Big East 1st team, which was released Thursday.
Sir Alec Lemon was a unanimous choice at wide receiver following his record-breaking year, made all the more impressive when you remember he began it on the sidelines.
Justin Pugh, who also missed a bunch of games with an injury, was named to the first-team. On the defense, they were both joined by strong safety Shamarko Thomas.
Ryan Nassib was named to the second-team for his record-breaking season at quarterback. He missed out on the top spot, which went to Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater. You could make a case for Nassib, but, it's understandable.
Teddy Bridgewater was voted the Big East offensive player of the year, Rutgers' Khaseem Greene was named defensive player of the year and Charlie Strong and Kyle Flood split the Coach of the Year honors (we'll get to that in a different post).
