Georgia running back Todd Gurley earned All-SEC honors in his freshman season.

Georgia running back Todd Gurley has had an impressive freshman season, and he was rewarded by the Associated Press Monday, as the media outlet named him first team All-SEC.

Gurley leads the SEC in rushing yards this season, gaining 1,260 on 199 carries. Despite carrying just 15.3 times per game, he averages 96.9 yards per contest and has scored 16 touchdowns on the ground. Gurley's 6.3 yards per carry ranks fourth among SEC players with at least 100 rushes.

Joining Gurley on the first team was Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones, who the AP tabbed as SEC Defensive Player of the Year. Defensive tackle John Jenkins, linebacker Alec Ogletree and safety Bacarri Rambo garnered second team honors, and quarterback Aaron Murray was listed as honorable mention.

The Bulldogs are coming off a heartbreaking 32-28 defeat at the hands of Alabama in the SEC Championship Game. Next up for Georgia is the Capital One Bowl against Nebraska. The Bulldogs and Cornhuskers will kick off New Year's Day 2013 from Orlando's Citrus Bowl at 1 p.m. ET, and the game will be televised on ESPN.
