Syacuse Football: Sean Hickey Only Orange on All-ACC Preseason Team

New, 10 comments

Should Cam Lynch or Riley Dixon have gotten a nod, too?

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Syracuse Orange left tackle Sean Hickey was named to the All-ACC preseason team, which was released on Wednesday morning. Hickey was the only Orange who made the list.

Hickey was pretty low on the vote count, receiving 26 votes/points(?), the lowest of any offensive lineman on the list. Such is Syracuse Life.

Can't say I'm up to speed too much on how other Orange measure up but perhaps guys like Cameron Lynch and Riley Dixon deserved to be up there as well. Then again, we're talking about the very best in the conference and while SU has a lot of talent guys, we don't have too many "stars" on the roster.

FSU led the pack with nine selections while Duke got four on the squad. They're followed by Clemson and Virginia Tech with three players each; Miami with two and Boston College, Louisville, North Carolina, Syracuse and Virginia with one honoree apiece.

Check out the full team below and sound off in the comments and who got robbed.
