Four Boston College football players - WR Alex Amidon, PR Spiffy Evans, LB Kevin Pierre-Louis and OL Ian White - have earned Athlon Sports preseason All-Atlantic Coast Conference honors.

Amidon earned first-team honors while Pierre-Louis captured second-team recognition. Evans and White each earned third-team recognition.

Amidon, a senior from Greenfield, Mass., earned All-ACC first-team honors after he recorded 78 receptions for 1,210 yards (15.5 yards per game) and seven touchdowns in 2012, establishing the school record for receiving yards and receptions in a season.

Amidon finished the season ranked 11th in the NCAA and second in the ACC in receiving yards per game (100.8) and finished the year second among ACC receivers in receptions per game (6.5). A 5-foot-11, 186-pound receiver, Amidon totaled 100 or more receiving yards in each of six games as a junior last year.

Pierre-Louis, a native of Norwalk, Conn., earned All-ACC honorable mention honors as a junior last fall. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound linebacker played in and started nine games and finished the season with 85 tackles, including 51 solo tackles.

Evans, a rising junior from Hollywood, Fla., played in 11 games - and returned 11 punts for 278 yards - as a sophomore in 2012. A 6-foot, 184-pound receiver, Evans averaged 25.3 return yards per punts.

White, a 6-foot-5, 303-pound product of Conway, N.H., started nine games at right guard last fall and has recorded 20 starts at the position over the last season seasons.

Boston College is in its first season under the direction of head coach Steve Addazio. The Eagles' season kicks off against Villanova on Saturday, Aug. 31 at noon on ESPN3.
