Gators land just three players on Coaches All-SEC team
Considering its 7-5 record and struggling offense all season, it should come as no surprise that the Florida football team had just three players named to the All-SEC Coaches Team, released today.
Senior punter Chas Henry and senior CB Ahmad Black were both first-team selections. Henry is also a finalist for the Ray Guy Award, which will be presented Thursday night at the Home Depot College Football Awards.
Junior CB Janoris Jenkins was a second-team selection on defense.
Florida had no first-team selections on offense.
Nine of the 12 SEC schools had a member on the first-team All-SEC squad. LSU led with five first-teamers, while SEC Champion Auburn tied Alabama with four selections on the first team. Arkansas, Georgia and South Carolina each had six members on the annual list. Auburn had four, while Florida and Mississippi State each had three. Alabama led with eight selections on the second team.
Every SEC squad had at least one student-athlete represented on the first and second teams. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.
Nick Bell, the Mississippi State sophomore DE who died in November of cancer, was named honorary captain of the 2010 All-SEC squad.
