    Coaches Preseason All-SEC Football Team Announced

    BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (August 22, 2013) – The defending national and Southeastern Conference Champions Alabama Crimson Tide led the league with 16 student-athletes named to the Coaches’ 2013 Preseason All-SEC squad, the SEC announced Thursday.

    Alabama placed a league-high five on the first team, while earning seven on the second team, and four on the third team. LSU and Georgia both had eight receive recognition, while Florida and Tennessee had seven each.

    This marks the 11th straight year of the SEC Coaches Pre-Season All-SEC Team.  

    Eleven of the 14 SEC schools had a representative on the first-team, while every institution had at least two players named to one of the three units.

    Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.

    LSU junior Odell Beckham Jr. was named to all three teams at three different positions, while Florida junior Ronald Powell was elected to the third team at both linebacker and defensive lineman by the SEC head coaches.
