Ole Miss Football: Engram, Wunderlich, and Kelly Earn All-SEC Honors

Ole Miss seniors Chad Kelly and Evan Engram were both named to All-SEC teams on Tuesday. The Rebels look to replace both stars next season.

Senior quarterback Chad Kelly, senior tight end Evan Engram, and junior Gary Wunderlich were all named to the All-SEC team list on Tuesday. Engram made the 1st team, while Kelly and Wunderlich were relegated to the 2nd team.

Kelly made the 2nd team All-SEC last season as well, a list that featured six Ole Miss football players.

Chad Kelly finished the season 205 out of 328 (62.5% completion rate) for 2758 yards. Kelly also threw for 19 touchdowns and 8 interceptions.

Without his late season injury, Kelly would have competed for the 1st-team position but was defeated by Jalen Hurts from Alabama for the position.

Evan Engram finished the season with 65 catches for 926 yards and 8 touchdowns. Engram accounted for 20.1% of Chad Kelly and Shea Patterson’s targets.

Evan is the first player in Ole Miss history to make All-SEC honors all four seasons.

Gary Wunderlich had a career season, making 95.7% of his field goal attempts. Wunderlich made 22 of his 23 field goal attempts, missing one field goal of 50+ yards this season.

The rest of the All-SEC teams are as followed.
