When it rains it pours…but in a good way for the Aggies. Five Ag’s made the Coaches All SEC team. Of course Johnny Football made it, as well as Damontre Moore, and a couple of th Maroon Goons (a.k.a. O Line) Luke Jockel and Jake Mathewes…Sr. Wide out Ryan Swoop was named to the second team.
Ten SEC schools had a member on the first team. Alabama led with six, while Florida had five and Texas A&M with four. LSU, South Carolina and Texas A&M had five apiece among the two first- and second-teams, while Mississippi State was next with four.
