Jones, Gurley & Theus Named To Sporting News All American Teams


Junior outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, true freshman tailback Todd Gurley and true freshman right tackle John Theus have all been named to Sporting News All-American teams.

Jones was named to the All-American Team while Gurley and Theus were included on the Freshman All-American Team.

Jones has already been named a Walter Camp, an Associated Press and an AFCA All-American this season. There are 10 players from the Southeastern Conference on this year’s Sporting News All-American squad.

Gurley and Marshall become the sixth and seventh Dawgs to be named to the publication’s Freshman All-American Team in the last six years. Tailback Knowshon Moreno and left tackle Trinton Sturdivant were the last Georgia pair to receive the honor in the same season in 2007. Nine of the 26 players on this year’s Freshman All-American Team are from the SEC.
