Trio of Vols named All SEC, UT Picked 5th in East

A trio of Tennessee football players have been named Preseason All SEC by the Media assembled at SEC Media Days.

Senior offensive lineman Cade Mays earned first-team honors. Senior punter Paxton Brooks was a second-team selection, while senior defensive back Alontae Taylor was named to the third team.

Mays started seven games a season ago, after transferring from Georgia. Six of Mays’ starts came at right guard with the other start coming at right tackle.

Brooks has averaged 42.9 yards per punt and 61.2 yards per kickoff for his career. In 2020, Brooks averaged 43.6 yards per punt, which ranked fourth in the conference. A total of 19 of his career punts have gone over 50 yards.

Taylor, who attended SEC Media Day last week, enters his fourth season with the Vols having played in 33 games with 19 starts. He has collected 102 tackles for his career, including 29 a season ago to go along with five passes defended.

The media also picked UT to finish 5th in the SEC East.

The Vols open the 2021 season, the first under Head Coach Josh Heupel, on Thursday September 2nd vs Bowling Green at 7 p.m. You can hear Tennessee Football all season long on the Rooster 101.5!
