Rubin takes home Player and Freshman of the Year, Thompson Named Coach of the Year
GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Wake Forest freshman Noah Rubin has been selected the 2015 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Player and Freshman of the Year and headlines the 2015 All-ACC Team, as announced today.
In addition to Rubin, Virginia Tech’s Jim Thompson was named ACC Coach of the Year for the first time in his career and represents the first men’s tennis coach to earn the honor in program history.
Wake Forest’s Rubin, a native of New York, New York, is the first freshman to earn both Player and Freshman of the Year honors in the same season. Rubin is also the first ever Demon Deacon student-athlete to be named ACC Player of the Year and third to earn Freshman of the Year (Derrick Spice, 2002 and Todd Paul, 2004).
Eleven ACC institutions had representatives on the All-ACC team, led by Duke, North Carolina, Virginia and Virginia Tech with four honorees. Wake Forest garnered three accolades while Florida State, Louisville and NC State had two honorees apiece. Clemson, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame rounded out the field with one representative each.
Virginia’s Mitchell Frank was the lone four-time selection on the All-ACC Team. Four members earned All-ACC recognition for a third time and another ten honorees earned accolades for a second time.
Individual honors, as well as the All-ACC teams, were determined by a vote of the league’s 13 head coaches.
