Greenville’s own Marlon Davidson was named to the coaches All-SEC Freshman team on Thursday. Davidson began his college football career as the first true freshman to start on Auburn’s defensive line since 1985.
Marlon started each of the Tigers’ 12 games.
Davidson ended his first year with 35 tackles, six tackles for loss, 2.5 sacks, six quarterback hurries, three pass breakups, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery. There is still one more game for the Tigers’ so those statistics will surely go up.
