Eight Dawgs honored

Two Georgia football players were named First Team selections to highlight eight Bulldogs named to the 2012 Southeastern Conference Coaches Preseason All-SEC Team, according to a league announcement on Thursday.

Junior outside linebacker Jarvis Jones (Columbus) and senior safety Bacarri Rambo (Donalsonville), who were both 2011 All-Americans, were two of 12 players named to the First-Team defense.

The Bulldogs had one player on offense and a player on defense named to the preseason Second Team. Junior quarterback {db]Aaron Murray[/db] (Tampa, Fla.), who finished last season on the All-SEC Second-Team, was again named to the squad while senior nose tackle John Jenkins was named to the defense's Second-Team as the Meriden, Conn., native readies for his second UGA season.

Georgia had another four players named to the Third Team. Sophomore receiver Malcolm Mitchell (Valdosta), who will also be lining up in the defensive backfield in 2012, was the Bulldogs' representative on the Third-Team offense.

On defense, senior defensive end Abry Jones (Macon), junior inside linebacker Alec Ogletree (Newnan) and senior cornerback Sanders Commings (Augusta) were voted as Third-Team selections. These mark the first preseason or postseason selections on the Coaches All-SEC Team for this trio.

Georgia starts the season with a home matchup against Buffalo on Sept. 1 in Sanford Stadium. The Bulldogs' first SEC opponent will be Missouri on Sept. 8 in Columbia, Mo.
