ATHENS-----University of Georgia freshmen Todd Gurley and John Theus were voted to the SEC Coaches’ All-Freshman Team, it was announced Thursday by the league office.

A 6-1, 218-pound tailback from Tarboro, N.C., has rushed for 1,260 yards and 16 touchdowns this season. He became the 12th Georgia player to rush for 1,000 yards in a season and joined Herschel Walker as the only Bulldogs to tally 1,000 yards in their true freshman campaign. Currently, Gurley is second in the SEC in rushing yards per game (96.9), tied for second in scoring (102 pts.) and third in all-purpose yards per game (124.3). 

A 6-6, 309-pound native of Jacksonville, Fla., Theus has started all 13 games at right tackle, becoming the first UGA true freshman to start at tackle since Trinton Sturdivant in 2007. He has helped pave the way for 184.2 rushing yards per game for the Bulldogs and the SEC’s second-leading rusher in Gurley. Theus also helped quarterback Aaron Murray rank in the top-five in the SEC in both total offense and passing yards per game.
