Missouri landed two players on the preseason All-SEC team, which was voted on by media members during SEC Media Days this week in Hoover, Ala.

Senior center Evan Boehm and senior linebacker Kentrell Brothers were both selected to the third team, which was announced Friday. No Tigers were chosen for the first or second teams.

That continues a trend since Missouri entered the league.

In four seasons, the Tigers have never had a preseason first-team selection and, despite winning back-to-back SEC East titles in 2013 and 2014, have only ever had one second-team representative (defensive lineman Markus Golden in 2014).

Boehm, a 6-foot-3 and 320-pound Lee’s Summit West graduate, has started 40 consecutive games for Missouri since arriving on campus in 2012.

He was named to the Rimington Trophy watch list for 2015 and also was picked for the Rimington and Outland Trophy watch lists as a junior last year.

Brothers, a 6-1 and 235-pound weak-side linebacker from Guthrie, Okla., led the Tigers with 122 tackles last season and was a second-team All-SEC pick by The Associated Press.

Alabama led the way with 12 total All-SEC selections, including six first-team picks.

LSU and Auburn each had 10 All-SEC picks, which tied for second in the conference.

Three Crimson Tide defenders were chosen for the first team, while Mississippi had three first-team offensive players.

Missouri tied with Kentucky for the fewest selections aside from Vanderbilt, which is not represented on the All-SEC team.
