Texas A&M lands five players on the SEC postseason award list

The awards keep coming for our SEC champions.

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports

The SEC postseason awards were released Tuesday, and Texas A&M was very well represented. We landed one player on the first team, two on the second team, two on the all-freshman team, and one on the all-defensive team.

Y'all, I believe Mel Brooks said it best:

It's good to be the king.

Jalen Jones; First Team All-SEC

Danuel House; Second Team All-SEC

Alex Caruso; Second Team All-SEC, All-Defensive Team

Tyler Davis and DJ Hogg; All-Freshman Team

For what it's worth I think Admon Gilder had a strong shout for All-Freshman team, and Caruso should have been the defensive player of the year.
