Dawgs Place 9 On Coaches All-SEC Team


Nine members of the Georgia football team have been voted to the 2011 Southeastern Conference Coaches' Preseason All-SEC team, it was announced Thursday by the league office.

The Dawgs are tied with South Carolina with the third-most players selected to the team behind Arkansas with 14 and Alabama with 13. Georgia had six players who were named to the first team, second only to Alabama's seven first team selections.

The Dawgs voted to the first team offense include sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray, junior tight end Orson Charles and senior lineman Cordy Glenn. Senior place kicker Blair Walsh, senior punter Drew Butler and senior return specialist Brandon Boykin also grabbed first team honors on special teams.

Senior center Ben Jones was voted to the second team, while senior lineman DeAngelo Tyson and Boykin were named to the second team defense.

This marks the eighth straight year of the SEC Coaches Preseason All-SEC Team. The team is announced each year in advance of the SEC Football Media Days. This year, the event will be held next Wednesday through Friday at the Wynfrey Hotel in Hoover, Alabama.
