Henry captures another award: SEC offensive player of year
ATLANTA - The honors keep rolling in for Derrick Henry.
Alabama's star running back is a unanimous choice for offensive player of the year on The Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference team announced Monday. That was no surprise, considering he already claimed the Heisman Trophy as the nation's top player and a spot on the AP's All-America team.
Henry's teammate, linebacker Reggie Ragland, is the SEC's defensive player of the year. Henry and Ragland are among a league-leading seven Alabama players to make the first team. No other school has more than three.
Florida's Jim McElwain is the choice as coach of the year after leading the Gators to the SEC championship game, where they were beaten by the Crimson Tide.
Texas A&M receiver Christian Kirk is the newcomer of the year.
