Mississippi State senior quarterback Dak Prescott earned a spot on The Associated Press All-Southeastern Conference first team while junior wide receiver Fred Ross was placed on the second team on Monday.

Prescott and Ross were both first team selections to the All-SEC team selected by the coaches last week.

Prescott completed 66.9 percent of his passes for 3,413 yards, 25 touchdowns and four interceptions while adding 541 yards and 10 more scores on the ground.

It is the second straight year the 6-foot-2, 230-pounder from Haughton, La., to be named a first team All-SEC selection. Billy Stacy (1956-57) is the only other MSU signal caller to accomplish that feat.

Ross, a 6-foot-2, 207-pounder from Tyler, Texas, led the league with 81 catches for 933 yards and four touchdowns.

Alabama placed seven players on the first team including offensive player of the year Derrick Henry and defensive player of the year Reggie Ragland. Florida’s Jim McElwain won coach of the year and Texas A&M receiver Christian Kirk was named newcomer of the year.
