Who knew we had 1st Team All-SEC linebacker on the roster?

For the first time since 2006 and only the third time this century, Arkansas has an All-SEC 1st Team linebacker. Martrell Spaight earned the honor after leading the entire league in tackles with 123, and including 8.5 tackles for loss, a sack, two forced fumbles with one recovery and one interception.

Spaight's the only Razorback to earn 1st Team honors. Jonathan Williams and Darius Philon made 2nd Team. Williams ran for 1,085 yards and 11 touchdowns, while catching 11 passes for 65 yards and two more touchdowns. Philon recorded 45 tackles including 10.5 for loss, 3.5 sacks, and recovered three fumbles.

And further congratulations to Trey Flowers, Hunter Henry, Denver Kirkland and Dan Skipper for picking up honorable mention awards. A little surprised Alex Collins didn't at least get an honorable mention as his stats are very similar to Williams'.

Here's the full list.
