SOSU's Wortham Highlights SE All-GAC Honors

Three Southeastern players have earned All-Great American Conference honors following the 2013 season, highlighted by running back Devlon Wortham earning the league's Freshman of the Year honor.

Wortham and punter Jared Heim were each tabbed as first team honorees, while Anthony Foster earned second team honors for the Savage Storm.

Wortham, a freshman from Wolfe City, Texas, is the first SE player to earn a specialty award in the GAC and does so after posting the eighth 1,000 yard rushing season in school history and the fourth in the history of the conference.

He finished tied for third in program history with 1,119 yards on the season, which led the conference in total rushing yards and his 101.7 was third in yards per game. His total is the second-highest in GAC history.

Wortham carried the ball 185 times and averaged 6.0 yards per carry with 12 touchdowns, including an 87 yard run that is the fifth longest in SE history.

Heim, a junior from Tomball, Texas, led the GAC in punting with an average of 41.9 yards per punt, falling one-tenth of a yard shy of matching the school record for punting average. His mark is good for the second-best punting season in conference history.

He punted 55 times on the season for 2,303 total yards with a long of 65 yards and 12 kicks inside the opponent's 20 yard line.

Anthony Foster, a junior from Tulsa, Okla., finished fourth in the conference in receiving yards per game with 94.2 ypg, but was one of just two receivers to post 1,000-yard seasons, finishing with 1,036 yards. His yardage mark is good for third all-time in the GAC and Southeastern record books.

Foster finishes with 75 catches on the season, which would have set a new school record for receptions were it not for the 77 catches by Kaymon Farmer, and averaged 13.8 yards per catch with a season long reception of 50 yards.

Wortham earns the first GAC specialty award for Southeastern, and brings the total of All-GAC honorees to 11, including three first team selections.
