GREENSBORO, N.C. – Running back Tyler Cierski, linebacker Cole Farrand, offensive lineman Bennett Fulper and punter Nathan Renfro were among 51 student-athletes named to the 2012 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Football team, announced Wednesday by the league.

To be eligible for consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.

Maryland’s four selections were the fourth-most in the league, behind Duke (21), Clemson (6) and NC State (5). Fulper was one of just nine student-athletes to earn the award for the third time. Cierski was one of 24 to earn it for the second time.
