December 11, 2003

BLACKSBURG - Jake Grove and Kevin Jones of Virginia Tech have both been named first-team All-Americans by The Walter Camp Football Foundation, as announced Thursday evening. It marks the fourth first-team squad both have been named to as they have already been honored by the Football Writers Association of America, the American Football Coaches Association and The Sporting News. With the four first-team selections, Grove and Jones are now consensus All-Americans. Both were also named a first-team All-BIG EAST selection Tuesday morning.

Grove, a finalist for the Rimington Award, has graded out at 91.8 percent for the season on over 700 offensive plays and leads the offensive line in knockdowns with 48. The senior from Forest, Va., who made the team as a center, is a two-time All-American as he made The Sporting News' fourth-team last year.

Jones, a junior running back from Chester, Pa., has broken three school records this year with one game remaining. He rushed for 241 yards at Pittsburgh and has rushed for 1,494 yards this season. He also has eight 100-yard games this year. All three are new school marks. Jones, a finalist for the Doak Walker Award, announced last week that the Insight Bowl against Cal will be his final game as he will enter the NFL Draft.
