The Associated Press released their post-season All-SEC Team on Monday, and three Texas A&M Aggies made the first team. The three names shouldn’t surprise you. Punter Braden Mann, Tight End Jace Sternberger and Running Back Trayveon Williams all made the cut.

Notable stats from A&M’s All-SEC players:

  • Braden Mann had the top punting average in the country this season, set an NCAA record for most 60+ yard punts in a single season, and leads all other SEC punters in yards per punt by more than 5.5 yards.
  • Jace Sternberger leads all SEC tight ends in yards per reception as well as total receiving by more than 100 yards, and has three more touchdown catches than any other SEC tight end (his 10 TDs lead all TEs nationally). Even among SEC receivers, only Deebo Samuel (South Carolina) and Jerry Jeudy (Alabama) have more touchdown receptions.
  • Trayveon Williams finished the season with 1,524 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns, both career highs. He leads the SEC in rushing (by more than 200 yards over second-place Benny Snell) as well as rushing touchdowns. In addition, he led all non-kickers in total scoring. Over his three-year career, Williams has 3,379 rushing yards and 31 rushing touchdowns, good for third all time and eighth all time for a Texas A&M player, respectively.
