Boston College's Luke Kuechly Named ACC Defensive Player Of The Year

Luke Kuechly, the junior standout linebacker from Boston College, has been named the ACC Defensive Player of the Year after putting forth a spectacular 2011 campaign in which he led the nation in tackles, both total (191) and solo (102).

"Congratulations to Luke Kuechly for being named ACC Defensive Player of the Year," said Boston College AD Gene DeFilippo on Twitter.

Kuechly was dominant from start to finish this season, recording 10 or more tackles in a remarkable 11 of 12 games and had a streak of 32 consecutive games with double digit tackles snapped in his final game of the season against the Miami Hurricanes, a game in which he had nine tackles and an interception returned 45 yards for a touchdown.

In his three year career at Boston College, Kuechly recorded a school-record 532 tackles and had seven interceptions, two forced fumbles and two total touchdowns. Kuechly is projected to be a top ten draft pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and may decide to forego his senior year in favor of the NFL.
