Dawgs have Two Consensus All-Americans

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - Senior offensive lineman Max Jean-Gilles and senior defensive back Greg Blue were named Consensus All-Americans this week. With two selections to the distinguished squad, Georgia makes up half of the Southeastern Conference's players to be given this accolade.

Players earn this distinction by being named to a consensus of the following All-America teams, recognized by the NCAA office: Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association, Football Writers Association of America, Walter Camp and The Sporting News.

Max Jean-Gilles and Greg Blue become Georgia's 22nd and 23rd players to reach Consensus All-American status. The Bulldogs have now earned the distinction a total of 28 times, as Frank Sinkwich, Terry Hoage and David Pollack were repeat-winners, while Herschel Walker was a three-time honoree. Georgia's 23 different Consensus All-Americans ranks fourth in the SEC while the Bulldogs have had more repeat-winners than anyone else. Georgia's 28 total selections ranks third all-time in the SEC.

The other two SEC players to earn Consensus All-America were Auburn offensive lineman Marcus McNeill and Alabama linebacker DeMeco Ryans.
