GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) - Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd leads the Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason all-league team.
    
The ACC on Wednesday announced its preseason all-league team following a vote of 65 members of the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.
    
Boyd was voted the league's preseason player of the year earlier this week after winning the ACC player of the year award in 2012.
    
He appeared on 59 ballots and is one of three Tigers on the team along with receiver Sammy Watkins and kicker Chandler Catanzaro. Clemson is the ACC's preseason favorite for just the second time since 1991.
    
Florida State had a league-best six players selected while North Carolina placed four players on the team.
    
Miami running back Duke Johnson appeared on 58 ballots while Watkins was on 57.
