Virginia Tech offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw was named to the Associated Press second-team All-America squad on Monday.
Darrisaw had previously earned a spot on the CBS Sports/247Sports first-team All-America squad. The Upper Marlboro, Md., native has also been named a second-team All-America selection by The Athletic and PFF College for his play during the 2020 season.
A first-team All-ACC selection, Darrisaw started 10 of the Hokies’ contests at left tackle where he anchored the left side of Tech’s offensive line and was part of a blocking unit that helped propel the squad to six 250-yard rushing games. The Hokies registered 27 rushing touchdowns, the squad’s best total in a decade. The offensive line paved the way for running back Khalil Herbert, who posted six 100-yard rushing games in 2020.
Darrisaw was named the ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week following Tech’s 38-31 victory at Duke (10/5). He becomes the first Tech player to garner a spot on an AP All-America squad since linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, who earned third-team status following the 2017 season.
