Seven Florida Gators football players were voted onto 2014 Preseason All-SEC teams on Thursday as chosen by the league’s 14 coaches.
Sophomore cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III and junior defensive end Dante Fowler, Jr. led the way for Florida with All-SEC First Team nods on defense.
Hargreaves ended the 2013 campaign as an All-SEC First Team member, while Fowler found a spot on the second team.
Redshirt senior right tackle Chaz Green earned a spot on the Preseason All-SEC Second Team, while juniors running back Matt Jones, left tackle D.J. Humphries and linebacker Antonio Morrison were named to the third team.
Redshirt senior wide receiver Andre Debose also picked up a third-team nod as a return specialist.
Alabama and LSU led the way with 11 representatives each on the three teams. Seven schools had seven or more selections.
At the 2014 SEC Media Days in July, four Gators were voted onto the media’s Preseason All-SEC teams. Fowler and Hargreaves were placed on the first team, while Debose was a second-team return specialist and Green got a nod for the third team.
