No. 4 Florida State has made history with a program-record 25 selections on the All-ACC teams released on Tuesday. This remarkable achievement showcases the undeniable talent and strength of the Seminoles' football program. Out of those 25 selections, an impressive eight players earned spots on the first team, solidifying FSU's dominance in the conference.

Leading the pack of first-team selections is quarterback Jordan Travis, who has proven to be a force to be reckoned with on the field. Joining him are offensive tackle Darius Washington, offensive guard D'Mitri Emmanuel, defensive end Jared Verse, and linebacker Kalen DeLoach. These exceptional athletes have consistently demonstrated their skills and contributed significantly to the team's success.

One standout player who deserves special recognition is wide receiver Keon Coleman. Not only did Coleman secure a first-team spot, but he also showcased his versatility as an all-purpose player and specialist. His exceptional punt return abilities have earned him the title of the league's top punt returner. Coleman's remarkable performance this season has made him the first Nole to receive three All-ACC honors in a single season.

Verse, who was also a first-team defensive end in 2022, has solidified his position as one of FSU's standout players. His outstanding performance on the field has earned him the title of the Seminoles' first two-time first-team All-ACC defensive end since Reinard Wilson in 1995 and 1996. In the team's recent victory against Florida, Verse showcased his prowess with 3.0 tackles for loss and a career-high 2.5 sacks.

FSU's second-team selections include running back Trey Benson, tight end Jaheim Bell, defensive tackles Braden Fiske and Joshua Farmer, cornerback Renardo Green, and punter Alex Mastromanno. These players have consistently demonstrated their skills and have made significant contributions to the team's success.

The third-team selections consist of wide receiver Johnny Wilson, linebacker Tatum Bethune, safety Shyheim Brown, and kicker Ryan Fitzgerald. These players have shown their dedication and commitment to the team, making their selection well-deserved. Additionally, several players received honorable mentions, including offensive guard Casey Roddick, center Maurice Smith, defensive end Patrick Payton, linebacker DJ Lundy, cornerbacks Jarrian Jones and Fentrell Cypress II, and safety Akeem Dent.

It is worth noting that several players have improved on their All-ACC honors from the previous year. Travis, Emmanuel, Green, and Bethune have all moved up in their respective teams. Benson has once again secured a second-team spot as a running back, while Smith has been recognized as an honorable mention center for the second consecutive year.

This outstanding achievement of 25 All-ACC selections sets a new record for Florida State's football program. Surpassing the previous high of 22 selections in 2022 and 1996, this milestone is a testament to the program's commitment to excellence. Throughout its history, FSU has consistently produced exceptional talent, and this year's record-breaking selections further solidify the program's legacy.
