2014-15 Men’s Golf All-ACC Team Announced

Georgia Tech’s Schniederjans, Wake Forest’s Zalatoris, and Florida State’s Jones win individual awards

GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced its 2015 Men’s Golf All-ACC team and individual awards today. Georgia Tech senior Ollie Schniederjans was named the ACC Player of the Year and Wake Forest’s Will Zalatoris garnered ACC Freshman of the Year accolades. Florida State’s Trey Jones was voted as ACC Coach of the Year.

The All-ACC Team, Player, and Freshman of the Year were decided by a combination of the Golfstat and Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, while Coach of the Year was selected by a vote of the league’s 12 head coaches.

Schniederjans, the sixth player in league history to repeat as ACC Player of the Year, spent time this year at No. 1 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings and was named to the U.S. Palmer Cup Team. A native of Powder Springs, Georgia, Schniederjans leads the league in scoring average and is ranked No. 10 in the country by Golfstat and No. 7 by Golfweek. In 10 events played this season, he won one and placed in the top 10 eight times.

Zalatoris becomes the first Demon Deacon to be named ACC Freshman of the Year since Webb Simpson in 2005. A native of Plano, Texas, he won one event and placed in the top 10 in five of nine events during his rookie campaign. He is the highest ranked freshman according to Golfstat at No. 14 and finished every tournament this year under par.

Jones led the Seminoles to four straight wins during the spring season and the No. 1 ranking in the country for most of spring. Currently atop the top spot in the Golfstat rankings, Florida State begins NCAA postseason play as the top seed in the Chapel Hill Regional. This is the second ACC Coach of the Year honor for Jones who was also recognized in 2008.

Three members of the All-ACC team – Georgia Tech’s Anders Albertson, Louisville’s Robin Sciot-Siegrist, and Virgnia Tech’s Trevor Cone – shared individual medalist honors at the ACC Championship in April.

Georgia Tech’s Albertson and Virginia’s Denny McCarthy earned All-ACC honors for the fourth times in their careers, becoming the 15th and 16th individuals in league history to accomplish the feat. Virginia Tech’s Scott Vincent and Schniederjans both have three career All-ACC honors.

Seven ACC programs are represented on the All-ACC team, led by Florida State with three individuals. Georgia Tech, Virginia, and Virginia each placed two golfers on the team.
