Tide has three players on AP All-SEC First Team

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama had eight players selected to the Associated Press's 2010 Postseason All-SEC Team, including three on the first team and five more on the second team it was announced on Monday. Wide receiver Julio Jones and right guard Barrett Jones were named to the first-team offense while safety Mark Barron garnered first-team defensive honors. 

Julio Jones produced the best season for a wide receiver in school history with 75 receptions for 1,084 yards and seven receiving touchdowns. He also rushed for 99 yards on six carries and one touchdown. Barrett Jones was the anchor of the Crimson Tide offensive front. The sophomore helped the Tide average 435.6 yards per game on offense and 6.86 yards per play, which was the second-best mark in school history. 

Barron was Alabama's unquestioned leader in the secondary with a team-high 75 tackles. He did a little of everything for the Tide defense with three tackles for loss, two sacks while intercepting three passes, breaking up six passes and forcing a fumble. Running back Mark Ingram headlined the second team along with left tackle James Carpenter, defensive tackle Marcell Dareus, linebacker Dont'a Hightower and free safety Robert Lester. Earning honorable mention were quarterback Greg McElroy and center William Vlachos.
