Britt Makes Honor Squad

Wesley Britt was the only Alabama football player selected to the first team in the inaugural Pre-Season All-Southeastern Conference Team as selected by SEC coaches and announced Thursday. Britt, an upcoming senior, is an offensive tackle from Cullman. He will be coming back from a season-ending injury, a broken leg suffered in the Tennessee game that caused him to miss spring practice.

The SEC included first, second, and third team selections. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.

A total of nine Bama players were named to the squad. In addition to Wesley Britt, other Alabama players selected were tight end David Cavan on second team and guard Evan Mathis on third team on offense. On defense tackle Anthony Bryant, linebacker Freddie Roach, and defensive back Charlie Peprah were second team selections, while linebacker DeMeco Ryans and defensive back Roman Harper were on third team. Punter Bo Freelend was third team. Peprah, Ryans and Freelend all tied for their spots on the squad.

Each SEC squad had at least two student-athletes on the combined squads. LSU led all schools with 13 players selected, including nine on the first-team. Georgia, Tennessee and Ole Miss each had 10 players selected, with Georgia having six players on the first-team.

Auburn running back Carnell Williams, Georgia defensive end David Pollack, Georgia defensive back Thomas Davis, and Tennessee punter Dustin Colquitt were the only unanimous choices.
