Berry honored by Sporting News

Tennessee safety Eric Berry was named to Sporting News Today's inaugural Midseason All-American Team, released Friday.

"No wonder the Vols are considering using Berry on offense and special teams," Sporting News Today's Dave Curtis said. "His coverage and ball skills, and knack for scoring touchdowns, are second-to-none among defenders."
