Media Voting Features More of the Same Eagles
SPARTANBURG, S.C. - A day after the Southern Conference's Coaches Selections were released the conference office announced the SoCon's Sports Media Association's All-Conference Teams on Wednesday. The teams featured more of the same but with a few differences from the coaches' picks.
Similar to the coaches' votes, Brent Russell (Cormer, Ga.) and Head Coach Jeff Monken were picked as the Defensive Player of the Year and the Head Coach of the Year, respectively. Wofford's Eric Breitenstein became the consensus Offensive Player of the Year by winning the media's Roy M. "Legs" Hawley award. Chattanooga's Terrell Robinson, who shared the top freshman honor in the coaches' voting, was named the League's Freshman of the Year by the media association.
Their was only one difference for the Eagles on the All-Southern Conference First Team. William Maxwell (Quitman, Ga.), a Second Team selection by the coaches, joined Brett Moore (Warner Robins, Ga.) as one of the top offensive linemen. Maxwell led the team with 96 knockdowns and posted four games of over 10 knockdowns, including a season-high 17 at Wofford.
The media's All-Conference Second Team added Robert Brown (Macon, Ga.) to the coaches' list of honorees. Brown joined Jaybo Shaw (Flowery Branch, Ga.) on the All-Conference Second Team Offense after leading the team with 834 yards rushing on 130 carries.
Consensus selections between the two All-Conference Teams include, First Team Specialists Adrian Mora (Dalton, Ga.) and Laron Scott (Warner Robins, Ga.), First Team Defense members Russell and Scott, and Second Team Defense selection John Douglas (Augusta, Ga.).
