CORAL GABLES, Fla. - University of Miami freshman Duke Johnson was named second-team All-ACC as both a running back and specialist, announced Monday by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association (ACSMA). The 2012 All-ACC teams were voted on by 46 ACSMA members.

Johnson, a five-time ACC Rookie of the Week honoree, posted one of the best all-around freshman seasons in program history, accumulating 2,070 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns in 2012. Johnson rushed for a Miami freshman-record 947 yards and 10 TD's, while amassing the second-most all-purpose yards in program history.

The Miami, Fla., product also set a Miami single-season record with 892 kick return yards and two touchdowns on 27 tries. He leads the ACC with a 33.04 kick return average - the fourth-best in FBS. His 947 rushing yards are the fourth-most among FBS freshmen, and he is tied as the national leader with 11 all-purpose plays of 50+ yards.

Johnson picked up 47 points as a second-team running back and 44 as a specialist.

Four Hurricanes received honorable mention honors - redshirt sophomore LG Jon Feliciano, junior RT Seantrel Henderson, junior RG Brandon Linder and sophomore LB Denzel Perryman. Feliciano and Linder started all 12 games along the offensive line in 2012, while Henderson started the season's final seven games at right tackle. Perryman played in nine games, including five starts at middle linebacker and one at outside linebacker. The hard-hitting Perryman finished second on the team with 64 tackles.

Three Canes were named to the 2011 All-ACC Team by ACSMA - LB Sean Spence (first team), C Tyler Horn (second team) and RB Lamar Miller (second team).
