Three Gamecocks Named To SEC All-Freshman Team

COLUMBIA, S.C. (USC SID) – Three South Carolina Gamecocks were named to the 2013 SEC All-Freshman Team as voted on by the SEC’s 14 head coaches.

Pharoh Cooper was twice recognized as an all-purpose player and return specialist with Skai Moore picking up honors at linebacker and Elliott Fry at placekicker.

Cooper ranked third on the team with 603 all-purpose yards including 193 rushing, 54 receiving, 40 on punt returns and 316 on kick returns.  He also completed 2-of-3 passes for 29 yard and a touchdown.

Fry led the Gamecocks with 95 points as a freshman placekicker, the fifth-highest single-season total in school history.  Fry connected on 15-of-18 field goal attempts and 50-of-51 extra points.  His 50 PAT’s in a season is one shy of Spencer Lanning’s record set in 2010.  Fry was named SEC Freshman of the Week after kicking a career-high four field goals in the 19-14 win over Florida.

Moore led the Gamecocks in tackles with 51 on the year.  He played in all 12 games with four starts.  He also had two interceptions and a fumble recovery.  One of the interceptions and the fumble recovery came in the 31-17 win over Clemson.
