Commodores Shut Out On All-SEC Team Selection

Greg Arias

It came as little surprise to most fans of college football and the SEC that the Vanderbilt Commodores failed to have a single player selected to the Associated Press All-SEC team that was announced earlier Monday.

Following a disappointing 3-8 season, the Commodores had just one player who most would have considered a possible candidate for inclusion in this group, running back Ke'Shawn Vaughn. 

In wrapping up his senior season, Vaughn rushed for 1,029 yards and nine touchdowns, figures good enough for 43rd and tied for 62cd nationally in those two categories.   

Vaughn finished seventh in the conference in rushing behind Mississippi State's Kylin Hill (1,347) LSU's Clyde Edwards-Helaire (1,290) Kentucky's Lynn Bowden (1,235) Georgia's D'Andre Swift (1,216) Arkansas' Rakeem Boyd (1,133) and Alabama's Najee Harris (1,088) for the season. 

Of those finishing ahead of Vaughn in rushing yards, only Boyd failed to make either first or second team.  

 Vaughn also finished seventh in touchdowns with 10 on the season, nine rushing and one receiving. Only one player ranked ahead of him in scoring failed to make the team, Ole Miss quarterback John Ryhs-Plumlee.
