Steven Scheu is Vanderbilt's Only AP All-SEC Performer

New, 11 comments

The Associated Press announced their All-SEC teams, and it's no surprise that few Commodores made the cut. Steven Scheu, a junior tight end, was Vanderbilt's only representative. He was named to the second team after catching 39 passes for 525 yards.

The Associated Press released their All-SEC teams on Monday. Vanderbilt, the only team in the league to win fewer than five games, was not well represented.

Junior Steven Scheu was named to the second team at tight end, but he was the only Commodore to make the list. Vandy didn't even have an honorable mention on the AP's slate. Emerging stars like Stephen Weatherly (12.5 tackles for loss), Oren Burks (14 passes broken up or defensed in eight games), and Darrius Sims (two kickoff return touchdowns) did not meet the press's standards in 2014.

That's not terribly surprising given Vanderbilt's young roster and a disappointing 3-9 campaign. The Commodores didn't have any standouts on the offensive side of the ball aside from Scheu. A handful of underclassmen made waves on the defensive side, but the 'Dores allowed five of their eight SEC opponents to score 34 points or more in matchups this season. That didn't give the AP a lot of ammunition with which to work.

Here is the full roster, via the AP:
