The SIDs Cast Their Ballots

Three Rebels was chosen preseason All-SEC today in the 64th Annual Birmingham News SEC Football Preview. The awards and rankings come from a poll of the league's 12 sports information directors, so I was very interested to see how my votes played out. I won't divulge details, but I was hoping to see another Rebel or two on the all-conference teams. It was nice to see the underrated Jesse Grandy named runner-up for the league's Best Kick Returner. However, another rising sophomore that is not receiving his proper due this preseason is punter Tyler Campbell. The Little Rock Rebel quietly finished No. 2 in the SEC and No. 12 in the NCAA (43.95 ypp) in punting average last year and earned SEC All-Freshman accolades.
