2014 Preseason Coaches All-SEC Teams

OXFORD, Miss. – Eight Ole Miss Rebels were selected to the preseason All-Southeastern Conference teams as voted on by the league’s 14 head coaches, it was announced Thursday evening during a live telecast on the SEC Network.

Three Rebels made the All-SEC first team – sophomore offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, sophomore defensive tackle Robert Nkemdiche and senior free safety Cody Prewitt.

Second-team honorees included sophomore wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, senior quarterback Bo Wallace and sophomore defensive back Tony Conner. Third-team honors went to senior linebacker Serderius Bryant and junior linebacker Denzel Nkemdiche.

Several of these have already garnered preseason All-America status from various media outlets, including Prewitt, Robert Nkemdiche, Tunsil and Treadwell. All eight of them were also voted preseason All-SEC by the league media last month.

All 14 SEC schools were represented by at least one member on the All-SEC teams, including seven schools with seven or more selections each. Ten SEC schools had at least one first team All-SEC selection, including a conference-best eight from Alabama.

Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.

Ole Miss faces Boise State in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game on Aug. 28 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. For more information on the game and all the festivities surrounding the game, go to the Rebels’ Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game webpage.
