BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Defending national champion Alabama and SEC Western Division runner-up LSU had the most representatives on the 2010 All-Southeastern Conference Coaches' Football Team, the league office announced on Tuesday. Alabama had 12 total members, while LSU had eight.
Nine of the 12 SEC schools had a member on the first-team All-SEC squad. LSU led with five first-teamers, while SEC Champion Auburn tied Alabama with four selections on the first team.
Arkansas, Georgia and South Carolina each had six members on the annual list. Auburn had four, while Florida and Mississippi State each had three. Alabama led with eight selections on the second team.
Every SEC squad had at least one student-athlete represented on the first and second teams. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.
The All-SEC squad had 12 first-team seniors, 12 juniors, two sophomores and one freshman. South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore was the only freshman. LSU junior Patrick Peterson made the first team twice - once as a return specialist and once as a defensive back. Trent Richardson of Alabama and Randall Cobb of Kentucky were also both recognized at two positions.
Nick Bell of Mississippi State was named honorary captain of the 2010 All-SEC squad.
The SEC individual award winners will be released on Wednesday and the SEC All-Freshman Team will be announced on Thursday.
