Former State RB Ted Brown headlines 2010 ACC legends class

Posted August 3, 2010

The 2010 Class of 2010 Dr. Pepper ACC Football Championship Game Legends was named by the conference Tuesday afternoon, a group led by N.C. State's career rushing leader, Ted Brown.

The players will be honored at the ACC Night of Legends event on Friday, Dec. 3, the night before the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte.

Brown is the only player in conference history to be named 1st-team All-ACC four consecutive seasons. When his college career ended in 1978, his 4,602 yards on the ground were the 4th most in the history of college football, a number that still resides at the top of the ACC record books to this day.  His 49 rushing touchdowns are the most in conference history, and his marks for rushing yards in a season (1,350), career touchdowns (51), and longest run from scrimmage (95 yards), remain Wolfpack records.

Joining Brown on the team are former Duke running back Jay Wilkinson, the 1963 ACC Player of the Year, and former North Carolina ball carrier Ethan Horton, the Associated Press ACC Player of the Year in 1984.

    No wonder you think history doesn't exist! You've lived so little of it. :-)

    What a great player. He was a man among boys in his day.

    Ted was a little before my time. Wish I could have seen him play.

    I wonder if Chuck Amato, John Bunting and Carl Franks will ever get to represent their school at the ACC Championship game.
