Auburn juniors Antonio Coleman and Sen'Derrick Marks were named Tuesday to the 2008 All-Southeastern Conference Coaches' Football Team, the league office announced. Coleman, a defensive end, was selected to the first team, while Marks, a defensive tackle, was a second-team selection.
Coleman, who was also named to the All-SEC first team by the Associated Press on Monday, led Auburn with six sacks and 10.5 tackles for loss this season – numbers that rank tied for fifth and sixth in the SEC, respectively. He finished the season with 46 tackles (29 solo, 17 assists) and had a team-high 13 quarterback hurries, as well as a forced fumble and a pass break-up.
