Coaches All-SEC Teams
The preseason All-SEC team as selected by the coaches
-- Defending SEC and national champion Florida Gators had a
league-high 16 representatives on the 2009 All-Southeastern
Conference Coaches' Football Team, while LSU had 10 total selections
and defending Western Division Champion Alabama and Georgia had nine
each, the league office announced on Thursday.
Florida led the way with eight players selected on
the first team while Alabama had six and LSU had three.
Nine of the 12 SEC schools had a member on the
first-team All-SEC squad. Each SEC school had at least two
student-athletes on either the first-, second- or third-team.
Ole Miss and Tennessee had seven total members on
the squads, while Kentucky had six, Vanderbilt five, South Carolina
and Arkansas four each, Auburn three and Mississippi State two.
There were only three unanimous selections to this
year's All-SEC pre-season squad – LSU offensive lineman Ciron Black,
Alabama wide receiver Julio Jones and Tennessee defensive back Eric
Berry. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players,
thus a unanimous selection earns 11 of 12 first-team votes.
There are 10 first-team pre-season selections that
were on last year's first-team coaches All-SEC post-season team.
Those include: QB Tim Tebow (Florida), RB Charles Scott (LSU), RS
Brandon James (Florida), DL Terrence Cody (Alabama), LB Rolando
McClain (Alabama), LB Brandon Spikes (Florida), LB Rennie Curran
(Georgia), LB Eric Norwood (South Carolina), DB Eric Berry
(Tennessee) and DB Trevard Lindley (Kentucky).
The All-SEC first-team squad had 15 seniors and 10
underclassmen, including eight juniors and two sophomores. The
second-team had 18 seniors, seven juniors and three sophomores. The
third-team had 16 seniors, eight juniors and five sophomores.
