| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Six Ole Miss Rebels were named to Phil Steele's Midseason All-SEC Teams on Wednesday, including first-team picks Serderius Bryant (linebacker) and Cody Prewitt (defensive back).

Senior Jeff Scott made the second team as a punt returner, while third-teamers were junior Donte Moncrief (wide receiver), freshman Evan Engram (tight end) and senior Andrew Ritter (kicker).

Bryant, a junior from Sanford, Fla., leads the SEC and ranks eighth nationally with 11.0 tackles per game. He has 55 tackles in five games as the starter at stinger linebacker and was recently named to the Bednarik Award Watch List for the nation's top defensive player.

Prewitt, a junior from Bay Springs, Miss., is second on the team with 35 tackles and first with three interceptions and eight passes defended. He is tied for the SEC lead with 1.33 passes defended per game and tied for second in the SEC with 0.5 interceptions per outing.

Scott would lead the SEC with a 19.6-yard punt return average if he had enough to qualify. In addition to being one of the league's top rushers, the Miami, Fla., native returned a punt 73 yards for a touchdown against Texas and was named SEC Special Teams Player of the Week. He is on the Paul Hornung Award Watch List for the nation's most versatile player.

Moncrief was a preseason All-SEC second team pick by Phil Steele and a third-team selection by the media outlet after last season. The Raleigh, Miss., native leads the team in receiving yards (358) and touchdown catches (4). He is on the Biletnikoff Award Watch List for the nation's top receiver.

Engram, who hails from Powder Springs, Ga., has enjoyed a fantastic rookie season with 18 catches, 237 yards and three TDs through the first six games. He is second among SEC freshmen in receiving yards per game (behind teammate Laquon Treadwell) and first in touchdown catches.

In his first season as the team's placekicker, Ritter has made seven of nine field goals with makes from 42, 42, 44 and 52 yards. The strong-legged kicker from Jackson, Miss., also has booted touchbacks on 22 of 35 kickoffs.

    I am not and never have been an Ole Miss fan. I am however a Coach Freeze fan. I like what he represents in today's world of big time sports and what he stands for in leading young men of today into a more responsible role. He is everything that Ole Miss has never had. I am on his band wagon winning or losing.

    Gray pants with red and blue stripes on the legs have served Ole Miss football my entire life time. The blue on blue, red on red and white on white are hideous and UGLY! Leave the pants alone.
