Kerbyson Named First-Team All-SEC by ESPN

    Kyler Kerbyson-1

    After not making an appearance on either the first or second All-SEC team as voted by the league’s coaches, Tennessee left tackle Kyler Kerbyson made the first team of ESPN.com’s 2015 All-SEC team.

    Kerbyson, a Knoxville native, was twice named the SEC’s Offensive Lineman of the Week in 2015 as the Vols reached new highs in the running game and significantly reduce the number of sacks given from the 2014 season. Tennessee gave up 3.31 sacks per game in 2014 and cut that to 1.75 per contest so far in 2015. Kerbyson’s played virtually every position along the offensive line over the past five years in Knoxville, but has settled in at left tackle and played his best football in 2015 – becoming a stabilizing factor on the offensive line for the Vols.

    Evan Berry was also selected to ESPN’s All-SEC team as a return specialist, just as was in the coaches’ selections. Berry led the SEC, and the nation, with an average of 38.3 yards per kickoff return and also led the conference with three kickoff return touchdowns.
