ATHENS - Georgia sophomore tailback Todd Gurley and senior tight end Arthur Lynch have been named to the Sporting News 2013 Preseason All-SEC Team.

Todd Gurley, a native of Tarboro, N.C., was a 2012 Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Freshman All-American after becoming the 12th Bulldog to rush for 1,000 yards in a season and the first since Knowshon Moreno in 2008. Gurley went for 1,385 yards, which ranks sixth in school history for a single season, and 17 touchdowns (a UGA freshman record) on 222 carries (6.2 average).

Only Gurley and Bulldog legend Herschel Walker have tallied 1,000-yard seasons in their true freshman seasons. Gurley finished 2012 with nine games where he went for at least 100 yards rushing, which ranks third in school history for a season.

Arthur Lynch, a native of Dartmouth, Mass., started 13 of 14 games last year and finished with 24 catches for 431 yards and three touchdowns. Named the team’s Most Improved Player, the 6-5, 254-pound Lynch posted career highs in receptions, yards and touchdowns in 2012. He had three catches for 50 yards and completed a pass on a fake punt that led to a touchdown versus Alabama in the Southeastern Conference Championship Game.

Lynch has also been named a Phil Steele Preseason Second Team All-American this summer after earning All-SEC Third Team honors in 2012.

The Bulldogs start the season with a non-conference matchup at Clemson on Aug. 31 at 8 p.m. ABC will televise the game from Memorial Stadium.
