Dawgs Put 7 On Coaches All SEC Team



The Dawgs had nine team members named to the Coaches All-Southeastern  Conference football teams, according to a league announcement on Tuesday.

Junior tight end Orson Charles, redshirt sophomore outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, junior free safety Bacarri Rambo and senior right tackle Cordy Glenn were all named to the First Team.

The Second Team selections included senior cornerback Brandon Boykin, senior center Ben Jones and redshirt sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray.

Georgia also had two members named to the Freshman All-SEC Team. Split end Malcolm Mitchell and running back Isaiah Crowell rounded out the list of Dawgs.

Charles, Jarvis Jones, Rambo, Glenn, Ben Jones and Murray were all also recently named to the same respective AP All-SEC teams while Crowell was named the AP SEC Freshman of the Year.

A member of the 2011 AFCA All-America Team, Charles, a 6-3, 241-pound native of Tampa, Florida, leads Georgia with a team-high 44 catches for 572 yards and five touchdowns and has started the last 23 games in a row. He is the school’s all-time leader at tight end with 1,368 yards receiving, is tied with former Dawg Leonard Pope with 10 career touchdowns and is third in UGA history with 93 receptions.

A 6-3, 241-pound native of Columbus, Jarvis Jones is the Dawgs’ leading tackler this season with 69 stops, including an SEC-leading 19.5 tackles for loss of 103 yards and 13.5 sacks. Also a 2011 AFCA All-American, Jones surged to No. 2 on the school’s all-time single season sack list behind David Pollack, who had 14 in 2002. Jones is currently third on the national sack list.

A 6-0, 218-pound native of Donalsonville, Rambo is third in the nation with seven interceptions this season and is fourth on Georgia’s defense with 52 tackles. He is the team’s active leader with 12 picks over the last three seasons. Rambo is also No. 2 on the NCAA’s list for active player interception return yardage with 241 yards, which ranks third in school history.

Earning a spot on Pro Football Weekly’s 2010 All-America Team, Glenn, a 6-5, 348-pound native of Riverdale, leads the team with 49 career starts (third all-time in UGA history for non-kickers), including the last 46 contests. He was named the SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week following the Dawgs’ 24-20 win over Florida and has helped sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray stand at the No. 2 spot in the conference in both total offense (229.6 ypg.) and passing yards per game (220.1) this season.

Boykin, a 5-10, 183-pound native of Fayetteville, has proven to be a threat both on defense and on special teams for the Dawgs. Starting at cornerback 37 times in his career, Boykin is fifth on this year’s team with 48 tackles, including nine tackles for loss. He is also tied for second on the team with three interceptions, giving him nine in his career.

As a kickoff returner, Boykin is the active SEC career leader with 2,593 yards, including four touchdowns, and is third on the SEC all-time list. Also, Boykin has returned 13 punts for 88 yards (6.8 avg.), caught four balls for 58 yards and run the ball five times for 95 yards. He has scored a receiving and a rushing touchdown this season.

Ben Jones, a 6-3, 316-pound native of Centreville, Alabama, has proven to be one of the most dominant linemen in the nation and joined his teammates in representing the Eastern Division at the 2011 SEC Championship Game versus top-ranked LSU on December 3. Jones graded out at 82 percent average through the regular season with an average of five intimidator blocks a game. He was named to UGA’s Victor’s Club 10 times during the 2011 season for his outstanding play on the offensive line and of Georgia’s 29 sacks allowed, Jones did not give up any of them.

A 2010 Freshman All-American, Murray, a 6-1, 211-pound native of Tampa, Florida, put together the necessary numbers in 2011 to help him become the SEC’s leading active player in total offensive yards (6,193), completions (427), touchdown responsibility (63), touchdown passes (57) and passing yards (5,910). Murray also set a new school record in touchdown passes in a season for UGA (33) in 2011 and touchdown responsibility by a quarterback in a season (35).

Mitchell, a 6-1, 184-pound native of Valdosta, leads the Dawgs with 614 receiving yards after hauling in 38 catches. Recording four of Georgia’s 35 receiving touchdowns this year, Mitchell has led the Dawgs in receiving three times this season. He missed three games with a hamstring injury midway through the season, but had four catches for 32 yards in his team’s last action versus No. 1 LSU in the SEC Championship Game.

Crowell (5-11, 215) is fifth in the SEC averaging 77.0 yards per game after tallying a team-high 847 yards and five touchdowns on 182 carries in 11 games played. The Columbus, native has four 100-yard games this season and was named the SEC Freshman of the Week four different times
