Coaches tab Dupree 2nd Team Preseason All-SEC

Kentucky senior defensive end Alvin "Bud" Dupree was named a second-team preseason All-SEC selection by the league's coaches on Thursday.

The Wildcats' defensive stalwart was the lone representative among three teams chosen in voting by the SEC's head coaches.

Dupree (6-4, 264) is coming off a junior season which saw him finish second on the team with 61 tackles. That figure ranked No. 1 among SEC defensive linemen. The Irwinton, Ga., native also posted 9.5 tackles for loss and seven sacks.

Alabama and LSU each placed a league-leading 11 representatives on the three units. All 14 member schools were represented by at least one player.

Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.
