Rivals.com 2009 All-SEC freshman team

The Rivals.com SEC all-freshman team is highlighted by two players from East Division schools.

Vanderbilt running back Warren Norman and South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore - both true freshmen - are the offensive and defensive freshmen of the year, respectively. Norman also was a scintillating kick returner, while Gilmore - who had success in the regular-season finale running the Gamecocks' version of the "Wildcat" formation - was a solid punt returner.

South Carolina had five selections on the team, with Gilmore being chosen twice: at corner and as a punt returner. Vandy had four selections; Norman was picked twice, at running back and as the kick returner. Alabama, Florida and Tennessee each had three selections.
