Georgia Bulldogs' outside linebacker Jarvis Jones was voted first team All-SEC by the conference's coaches, according to DogBytes Online. In 11 games this season, the junior amassed 77 tackles, a nation-leading 22.5 tackles for loss, 12.5 sacks, an interception, seven forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries. Remarkably, those numbers could have been higher, if not for the fact that Jones missed two games due to injury.
Jones joins C.J. Mosley of Alabama and Kevin Minter of LSU as the All-SEC linebackers. Five of Jones' teammates were named to the second team. Offensive guard Chris Burnette, freshman tailback Todd Gurley, nose guard John Jenkins, linebacker Alec Ogletree and safety Bacarri Rambo all made the list.
Last week, Jones was named an American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) FBS All-American for the second consecutive year. Jones was also awarded SEC Defensive Player of the Week honors twice this season, for his efforts against Missouri and Florida. On Monday, the Associated Press named him SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
