Four Florida Gators student-athletes were named to the 2011 Preseason All-SEC Teams on Thursday, as voted on by 167 members of the media currently in attendance at the 2011 SEC Media Days in Birmingham, AL.

Florida, whose players were some of the league’s highest vote getters one year ago, only placed redshirt junior kicker Caleb Sturgis on the second team. Junior linebacker Jon Bostic and sophomores defensive tackle Dominique Easley and all-purpose player Trey Burton received third team nominations.

The Gators were also chosen to finish third in the Southeastern Conference‘s East Division (with 12 first-place votes – South Carolina received 114).

Last week, the conference’s coaches picked six Florida players for their Preseason All-SEC Teams. Senior running back Jeff Demps (second team), redshirt sophomore LB Jelani Jenkins (third team) and redshirt sophomore specialist Andre Debose joined Sturgis, Bostic and Burton, who were voted into identical spots.

    I hope that Demps uses this as motivation to get into the Heisman discussion. I doubt he will be able to win it with all the running backs we have but it would be nice to see him make some noise.

    So weird that Easley makes the list but Floyd doesn’t, when Easley didn’t hardly see the field last year and Floyd was tearing up backfields in a few games.
