Auburn was one of three teams to land six players on the coaches All-SEC team.

Alabama led all schools with 11 representatives, seven on the first team, followed by LSU’s nine selections. Florida and Texas A&M each had six players along with Auburn.

Kicker Daniel Carlson made the All-SEC First Team for a second straight year. Carlson was joined running back Kamryn Pettway and defensive lineman Carl Lawson.

Carlson made 26 of 30 field goals this season and had the second best touchback percentage (79.4 percent) in the country. The kicker is a Lou Groza Award finalist for a second straight season.

Pettway made the All-SEC First Team despite not carrying the ball in a third of Auburn’s games (three due to injury). The third-year sophomore had 1,123 yards with seven touchdowns.

The running back became only the second player (Bo Jackson) in program history to rush for more than 150 yards in four straight games.

An injured quad cost him a chance at the league rushing title.

Lawson played a full season for the first time since his true freshman year in 2013. The healthy defensive end led Auburn with nine sacks and 24 quarterback hurries.

Defensive lineman Montravius Adams, offensive lineman Braden Smith and linemate Alex Kozan made the All-SEC Second Team.

Coaches weren’t allowed to vote for their own players.

The SEC will announce individual award winners Wednesday and the All-Freshman Team Thursday.
