Country's Greatest Hits

The Southeastern Conference will celebrate having nine players on the 2012 ESPN All-America team. The rest of the nation will celebrate, as well -- that's three fewer than the SEC placed on the 2011 team.

Eight other conferences are represented among the 25 players. All four classes are here. You may have heard of the one freshman (he won the Heisman). Alabama and Texas A&M lead all schools with three players each.

Crimson Tide center Barrett Jones is one of two repeaters, although not at the same position as a year ago. The other is Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones. They are not related, except in talent. -- Ivan Maisel
