ATHENS-----Six Georgia football players including Justin Anderson,
Cordy Glenn, Ben Jones, A.J. Green, DeAngelo Tyson and Blair Walsh
were named to the 2008 SEC Coaches' All-Freshman Team, the conference
office announced Thursday. Georgia had more selections than any
other league school.
Anderson, a redshirt freshman from Ocilla, Ga., appeared in 11 games
making seven starts for the Bulldogs at right guard and right tackle
while Glenn, a true freshman from Riverdale, Ga., appeared in 12
games including nine starts at right guard and left guard. Jones, a
true freshman offensive lineman from Centreville, Ala., made nine
starts and appeared in 12 games, mostly at center. All three helped
pave the way for 1,338 rushing yards by tailback Knowshon Moreno,
tops in the conference.
Green, a true freshman from Summerville, S.C., leads the SEC with 951
yards receiving for an average of 79.2 yards per game. He has hauled
in 55 passes including eight touchdowns and is looking to become the
first Bulldog to lead the SEC in receiving since Brice Hunter in
1994. He would be the first freshman to lead the league in receiving
yards per game since 1999. He was voted SEC Freshman of the Year by
the league’s coaches.
Tyson, a true freshman defensive tackle from Statesboro, Ga., has
registered nine tackles in 12 games with five quarterback hurries.
Walsh, a true freshman placekicker from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has
connected on 14-of-22 field goal attempts this season including a 52-
yarder against Georgia Southern. He has been perfect on all 47 PATs.
