3 Dawgs Make All Freshman Team


University of Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray, strong safety Alec Ogletree and nose tackle Kwame Geathers made the Southeastern Conference Coaches’ All-Freshman Team, the league announced Thursday.

Murray has the second highest passing efficiency rating for a freshman in the nation and ninth overall at 162.7. He holds the Dawg freshman record and ranks second in the SEC for total offense by a freshman (3,014) and passing yards (2,851). Murray is tied with former Dawg standout D.J. Shockley for the Georgia record for touchdown responsibility in a season with 28.

Ogletree has appeared in 11 games with four starts. He has tallied 29 tackles including a career-high 10 against second-ranked Auburn.

Geathers has played in eight games with seven tackles and one tackle for a loss.

Georgia, LSU and Vanderbilt each had three representatives on the team. Florida led the way with five selections, while Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee had four each. South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore earned a spot on the team after he was named SEC Freshman of the Year and first team All-SEC earlier this week.
