SEC 2018 Season Awards and All-Conference Team

Athlon hands out its awards from the 2018 season

Alabama and Georgia were a step ahead from the rest of the SEC this year, so it’s no surprise these two teams take 26 overall selections on Athlon’s 2018 All-SEC squad. The Crimson Tide and Bulldogs are both tied with 13 selections apiece, with coach Nick Saban’s team placing five players on the first team, including quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, left tackle Jonah Williams and lineman Quinnen Williams. Kentucky is a big winner in the postseason awards, as Mark Stoops earned Athlon’s SEC Coach of the Year award, with linebacker Josh Allen taking home the top defensive player honor for the conference.
