ACC Ballers Awards

As most if not all of you already know, Carolina turned in a final four weekend to remember in Detroit this past April as they swept past the competition to win the prestigious National Championship.

Of course, the focus has now been moved to the next part of the season, the part that most coaches hate, the NBA waiting game. There are several players still on the fence about coming back tor another year of ACC ball or playing in the league.

We won't know who is staying or leaving for another month so for now lets take a look back at which players and teams stood out this year.

My name is Stephanie Girard and I am working to set up the Raycom Sports’ ACC blog network ( The network will be launching this fall and we would love for you to be a part of it from the beginning. It is a great chance to introduce your opinions, writing style, and links to your site to the Raycom audience.
I would love a chance to discuss this opportunity with you personally. Please let me know your availability and the best way to in touch with you. Then, we can go over the particulars of the network. I have also included a little more information below. Thank you, in advance, and I look forward to talking with you!

Raycom Sports is launching a blog network this fall. This network of blogs will feature all the teams of the ACC. We are looking for passionate sports bloggers to provide content for our new team blogs. This is a chance to work with your fellow fans and connect to your school’s fan base.
This is not a paying gig but it will give you exposure to the entire audience, a chance to hone your skills, and the ability to connect with other passionate ACC fans. The best content will be featured on video team page, our twitter feed, weekly email, etc.
Please note: The platform here is Wordpress. Familiarity with it is useful, but not essential.
What we are looking for in a blogger:
• Original content. We would prefer not to have reposts from your blog. Posts don’t have to be too long. Just passionate and well-thought out.
• Commitment: We are looking for at least one post a week. Again, the posts do not have to be war and peace. They can be short, they can be long…..
• Passion for your team in particular and the ACC in general.
• Linking back to your site is okay, as long as it’s relevant.
