Burden, Bryant, Pascal, Ford in ACC Legends class

Former players Willie Burden of N.C. State, Kelvin Bryant of North Carolina and Bob Pascal of Duke will be honored as ACC legends during the conference's annual celebration of its football championship game in December in Tampa.

Heisman Trophy winners Vinny Testaverde of Miami and Chris Weinke of Florida State are the headliners in the Legends class along with Danny Ford, who coached Clemson to the 1981 national championship.

Others in the class include Bill Barnes of Wake Forest, Mike Mayock of Boston College, Eddie Lee Ivery of Georgia Tech, Kevin Glover of Maryland, Jim Bakhtiar of Virginia and Bob Schweickert of Virginia Tech.

The Legends will participate in the Coaches and Awards Luncheon and the Night of Legends gala on Dec. 4. The following evening, they will be honored prior to the ACC championship game at Raymond James Stadium.
