GREENSBORO, N.C. - University of Miami punter Dalton Botts was one of 52 players selected to the 2012 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Football Team, announced Wednesday by Commissioner John Swofford.

To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 GPA for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career. All 12 ACC schools were represented by at least one selection on the team. The ACC has selected an All-ACC Academic Football team every year since 1954.

The team was chosen from a pool of 105 ACC football student-athletes who were nominated by their schools.

Botts, a criminology major from Taft, Calif., played in all 12 games in 2012 for the Hurricanes, serving as the team's punter and placekick holder. He averaged 40.5 yards on 54 punts, while downing 23 kicks inside opponents' 20-yard line. The Preseason All-ACC selection finished sixth among ACC punters in punt average. He was named the Hurricane Media "Good Guy" Award winner at the team's end-of-season banquet.
