O’Cyrus Torrence Earns Lone Florida All-SEC Team Honor

The 2022 All-SEC Football Teams were announced Tuesday as Florida guard O’Cyrus Torrence earned first-team honors. The junior Louisiana transfer — who officially declared for the 2023 NFL Draft Sunday — was the only the Gator to make either the first or second team.

Torrence for the Gators

Torrence was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week following his performance in Florida’s 41-24 road win against Texas A&M. A week later, he won Co-SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week after Florida cruised to a 32-point victory over South Carolina.

Though his status for the Las Vegas Bowl on Dec. 17 remains unclear, Torrence accepted his invitation to play in the 2023 Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.

SEC Standouts

Florida, Kentucky and Vanderbilt were the only teams with fewer than two representatives on either all-conference team. Alabama and Georgia led the conference with five All-SEC First Team selections each followed by Tennessee (4).

Remaining Awards

The SEC will announce its individual award winners Wednesday before the conference reveals its All-Freshman Team Thursday. After recovering from a bicep tear that sidelined him for most of the 2021 season, Florida linebacker Ventrell Miller is a semifinalist for 2022 Comeback Player of the Year.
