Mississippi State saw three of its players picked as All-SEC members by the league’s coaches on Tuesday.

Senior quarterback Dak Prescott and junior wide receiver Fred Ross were selected to the first team while junior wideout De’Runnya Wilson was placed on the second team.

Prescott is the first signal caller in school history to be named first team All-SEC in back-to-back seasons. The 6-foot-2, 230-pounder from Haughton, La., was the only player in the conference to lead his team in both rushing and passing.

Prescott completed 66.9 percent of his throws for 3,413 yards, 25 touchdowns and four interceptions while adding 541 yards and 10 more

scores on the ground.

Ross is the first Bulldog receiver honored on the first team since Eric Moulds in 1995. The 6-foot-2, 207-pounder from Tyler, Texas caught 81 passes for 933 yards and four touchdowns.

Wilson, a 6-foot-5, 215-pounder from Birmingham, Ala., hauled in 55 passes for 822 yards and nine scores, which ranked second in the SEC.

MSU became the first school since Georgia in 2008 to place a quarterback and two receivers on the All-SEC team.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
