Five Florida Gators football players were voted onto 2014 All-SEC teams this week, as chosen by the league’s coaches and Associated Press voters.
Sophomore cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III was a consensus All-SEC First Team pick from the coaches and AP for his stellar play once again this season. He has taken home the honor in consecutive seasons and is Florida’s only unanimous first-team selection in each of the last two years.
Junior defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. also earned a first-team nod from the coaches but was picked only as an honorable mention by AP voters. Joining Fowler as an AP honorable mention was redshirt senior wide receiver Andre Debose, who received the honor as an all-purpose player for the Gators.
Florida redshirt senior center Max Garcia and junior linebacker Antonio Morrison were both voted onto the coaches’ All-SEC Second Team for their stellar play this season, though neither was honored by the AP voters.
Individual honors will be announced by the SEC on Wednesday with the All-Freshman team being revealed on Thursday. It is not expected that any Gators will be up for individual awards this season.
Florida was one of eight SEC schools to boast four or more All-SEC selections by the coaches with Alabama and Missouri each seeing seven of its players recognized.
