    Wildcats Make All SEC Team And Brooks Finalist


    * Five Wildcats – tight end Jacob Tamme, linebacker Wesley Woodyard, quarterback AndrĂ© Woodson, defensive end Jeremy Jarmon, and offensive tackle Garry Williams – were named to the All-Southeastern Conference squad selected by league coaches. Tamme (Danville, Ky.) and Woodyard (LaGrange, Ga.) are first-team selections, with Woodyard being one of only five unanimous choices on this year’s team. Woodson (Radcliff, Ky.), Jarmon (Collierville, Tenn.), and Williams (Louisville, Ky.) are second-team picks.

    * Kentucky head coach Rich Brooks has been named one of 10 finalists for the Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award, a national honor that recognizes accomplishments on and off the field of play and is presented with the support of the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame. After inheriting a program on a severe NCAA probation in 2003, Brooks has steadily rebuilt the program. Kentucky has posted a 7-5 record in 2007, and along with last year’s 8-5mark, represent the first consecutive seven-win seasons for UK football in 30 years.
