The three Georgia football players named first-team All-SEC by the media on Monday got the same honor from the league’s coaches on Tuesday.
Wide receiver A.J. Green, linebacker Rennie Curran and punter Drew Butler added first-team spots in the coaches’ All-SEC balloting to their berths on the Associated Press’ first team.
Butler leads the nation in punting, while Curran leads the SEC in tackles and Green is second in the league in receiving yards per game.
The coaches also named four Georgia players second-team All-SEC: placekicker Blair Walsh, defensive tackle Geno Atkins, defensive end Justin Houston and center Ben Jones.
Walsh, Atkins, Houston and offensive lineman Clint Boling made the AP’s second team on Monday.
Alabama had eight players named first-team All-SEC by the coaches, while Florida had seven.
