More Pre-Season Honors For Dawgs


Six Georgia players have been named to the First Team All-Southeastern Conference squad to highlight Lindy’s 2011 Southeastern Football magazine preseason all-star teams.

Redshirt sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray (Tampa, Fla.), junior tight end Orson Charles (Tampa, Fla.), senior offensive tackle Cordy Glenn (Riverdale), senior kickoff returner/cornerback Brandon Boykin (Fayetteville), senior place-kicker Blair Walsh (Boca Raton, Fla.) and senior punter Drew Butler (Duluth) were all named First Team All-SEC.

Walsh, ranked as the nation’s top kicker by the publication, was also named a First Team All-American while Butler, who was named the nation’s second-best punter, was named a Second Team All-American.

Junior receiver Tavarres King (Mount Airy) was named Second Team All-SEC on offense by Lindy’s with redshirt sophomore nose guard Kwame Geathers (Georgetown, S.C.) and Boykin being Second Team selections on defense.

At individual positions, Lindy’s calls Boykin the nation’s third-best all-purpose player, Charles the fifth-best tight end, senior Ben Jones (Centreville, Ala.) the seventh-best center and Glenn the 10th-best offensive tackle.

The Dawgs start their 2011 campaign with a matchup versus Boise State in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game at the Georgia Dome on September 3rd.
