COLUMBIA, SC - Three South Carolina players were named to the AP-All SEC team today.
Tight end Hayden Hurst was named first team All-SEC by the AP. The junior out of Jacksonville led conference tight ends in receptions and receiving yards. He is a Mackey Award and Burlsworth Trophy Semifinalist and set the school record for receptions by a tight end this year.
On the defensive side Skai Moore and Dante Sawyer are 2nd team All-SEC defense picks. Moore leads Carolina in tackles and has tied the career interception record with 14. He is on pace to lead USC in tackles for four years. Only 14 other players in college football have done that.
Lastly, Sawyer, a senior defensive tackle, leads the country in forced fumbles with five this season. He is one way from setting the USC single season record.
The AP All-SEC trio will lead South Carolina into the Outback Bowl to face Michigan on New Year's Day in Tampa, FL.
