COLUMBIA, SC (TheBigSpur.com) -- Three South Carolina players made the Associated Press' All-SEC Teams on Monday.

Junior tight end Hayden Hurst was named a first-team selection while senior defenders Skai Moore and Dante Sawyer landed on the second team. 

Hurst played and started all 12 games for the Gamecocks and was the team's second-leading receiver with 41 receptions and 518 yards, becoming the third tight end in program history to record over 1,000 receiving yards. His 89 career receptions at tight end are the most in program history, surpassing Danny Smith's 78. 

Moore, who is tied for the program record for interceptions with 14, is also one game away from leading USC in tackles for all four of his playing years. He has 88 tackles in 2017 with eight tackles for loss, two sacks, three interceptions, and four quarterback hurries. 

Sawyer has 29 tackles this season with three sacks but is tied for the most forced fumbles in the country with five. He has been an integral part of the Gamecocks improved defensive line despite not starting a game since week three.
