COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Texas A&M Football’s Jalen Wydermyer, Kenyon Green, Isaiah Spiller and Demani Richardson were voted to the SEC All-Freshman Team by the league’s coaches, announced Thursday morning by the Southeastern Conference.

Wydermyer led all freshman tight ends in the country with six touchdowns while his 31 receptions were tied for the third most among tight ends in the SEC. The Dickinson, Texas native posted a first down or touchdown on 23 of his 31 catches this season.

Green started all 12 games for the Aggies at right guard and helped lead the A&M rushing attack to 22 touchdowns on the ground. The Houston, Texas native was a part of the offensive line that helped the Aggies to 4,785 total yards this season and 30.0 points per game.

Spiller recorded the most rushing yards and touchdowns by a freshman running back in the SEC. The Spring, Texas native’s nine rushing touchdowns are the most by a power-5 freshman running back in the country.
