CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – Virginia senior placekicker Robert Randolph has been named to the 2011 Atlantic Coast Conference All-Academic Football team, announced by league commissioner John Swofford.

The native of Naples, Fla., also was named to the 2010 ACC All-Academic team.

Randolph earned his third letter in 2011 and finished the year 16-of-23 on field goal attempts, including being named the national placekicker of the week in back-to-back weeks after starting the year 8-of-8. His 23-yard field goal as time expired lifted UVa to a 34-31 triumph at Indiana in week two. Randolph concludes his career No. 6 all-time at UVa in scoring with 225 career points.

He is a member of the ACE Program at UVa, which mentors local elementary school students. He also participates with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Randolph currently has a cumulative 3.2 grade point average as he pursues a degree in environmental sciences.

To be eligible for consideration, a player must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career. All 12 ACC schools were represented by at least one selection on the team. The ACC has selected an ACC All-Academic Football team every year since 1954 and Randolph is the 197th Cavalier to earn such honors.
