Florida Gators' Chris Rainey, Caleb Sturgis are first-team selections on Coaches All-SEC Team

The SEC coaches apparently think a little more highly of some Gator players than the SEC's writers do.

A day after no Florida player on offense or defense was selected to the AP All-SEC Team, the Gators landed one on the All-SEC Coaches Football Team on offense.

Senior RB Chris Rainey shared First=Team All purpose honors with Joe Adams of Arkansas. Gators K Caleb Sturgis was also a First-Team selection.

Rainey led the Gators with 1,318 all-purpose yards, including 790 rushing and 350 receiving. Sturgis was 21-of-25 in field goals with a long of 55 yards this season.

Alabama had a total of 11 players named to the Coaches First and Second Teams, while undefeated league champion LSU had 10.

Florida, which finished the season 6-6, had just two players represented on the coaches first and second teams.
