Duke's Laken Tomlinson named ACC male athlete of the year

Add one more trophy to Laken Tomlinson's already vast collection of hardware: The former Duke guard is the 2014-15 winner of the Anthony J. McKevlin Award.

The award, in its 62nd year, goes to the top male athlete in the ACC, as voted on by the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association.

Tomlinson was a consensus All-American this past fall after helping lead the Blue Devils to their third straight bowl game. He made the first team All-ACC squad for a second straight season, the academic All-ACC team for a fourth straight season and was honored with the FWAA/Discover Orange Bowl Courage Award.

The Chicago native is the 13th Duke athlete to receive the McKevlin Award. In May, Tomlinson became the Blue Devils' highest NFL draft pick (No. 28, Detroit Lions) since 1987.

Tomlinson received 10 votes for the McKevlin Award, beating out Notre Dame basketball player Jerian Grant (eight votes), Florida State football and track & field star Jalen Ramsey (seven) and NC State wrestler Nick Gwiazdowski (five). Virginia women's soccer player Morgan Brian captured the Mary Garber Award as the ACC's top female athlete.
