Brothers, Harris earn SEC honors
The release of the coaches' All-SEC team on Tuesday saw the inclusion of two Missouri players.
Linebacker Kentrell Brothers was named to the first team, and defensive end Charles Harris was a second-teamer, again according to league coaches. Brothers' inclusion gives Missouri a first-team defensive inclusion in each of the last three years. Prior to Brothers, Michael Sam made the first team in 2013; Shane Ray did so in 2014.
Brothers finished the regular season as the nation's leading tackler with 152 stops. He had 12 tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, two interceptions and three blocked kicks.
Harris had 18.5 tackles for loss, which tied for first in the SEC, and also had seven sacks to tie for the team lead with redshirt freshman Walter Brady. According to a release from Missouri, it's the tenth consecutive year in which a Missouri defensive lineman has been named to either the first or second all-conference teams by league coaches, dating back to 2006.
The conference will announce the individual awards on Dec. 9, followed by the All-Freshman team on Dec. 10.
