Florida Gators named to Coaches All-SEC Teams

The Florida Gators had five players named to All-SEC teams as voted on by the league’s coaches. Juniors Vernon Hargreaves (DB), sophomore Jalen Tabor (DB) and senior Jon Bullard were all named to the first team. Senior Antonio Morrison (LB) and redshirt sophomore Johnny Townsend (P) were named to the second team.

This is the third year that Hargreaves has been named to the First Team All-SEC list — the only player in the conference who can boast that — and Mississippi State quarterback Dak Prescott joins him as a repeat First Team selection, as does South Carolina athlete/receiver Pharoh Cooper.

Tennessee defensive lineman Derek Barnett and Morrison both earned second-team honors for the second-straight season.

The University of Alabama led all teams with 10 represented on the two teams after winning their second consecutive SEC Championship. Kentucky was the only school that did not have a player named to either team and Florida is one of 12 schools to have two or more players named.

Coaches could not vote for their own players when compiling their lists.

A South Florida native, Nick developed a passion for all things sports at a very young age. His love for baseball was solidified when he saw Al Leiter’s no-hitter for the Marlins live in May of 1996. He was able to play baseball in college but quickly realized there isn’t much of a market for short, slow outfielders that hit around the Mendoza line. Wanting to continue with sports in some capacity he studied journalism at the University of Central Florida. Nick got his first start in the business as an intern for a website covering all things related to the NFL draft before spending two seasons covering the Florida football team at Bleacher Report. That job led him to GatorCountry. When he isn’t covering Gator sports, Nick enjoys hitting way too many shots on the golf course, attempting to keep up with his favorite t.v. shows and watching the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins.
