Jarvis Geathers, Cory Hogue, Bruce Miller, and Jah Reid were named to the All Conference USA First Team in a vote by the league's 12 coaches.

Four players on the first team marks a milestone for the Knights, tying the 2007 winners for the most in school history. The first four team selections also ties second-most in C-USA this year.


In addition to the prestigious first four team picks, Josh Robinson and Torrell Troup were selected for the all-conference second team. Robinson is the first freshman named by coaches on defense since 2005 when UCF alumnus Joe Burnett earned the honors.


Geathers, Miller, and Hogue earned the rights by being essential to C-USA's total rushing and scoring defense while also giving the Knights tops in the league in both sacks and tackles for loss.


Bruce Miller ranked fifth in the nation in sacks this year and first in C-USA while Geathers ranks ninth and second in the stats respectively.


Hogue recorded 11.5 tackles for loss this year, fifth in the conference, and, with 99 tackles this season, is on the verge of becoming the first UCF linebacker since Antoine Poe in 2003 to break the 100 mark.


Jah Reid has improved immensely this year, both in blocking ability and helped more than double offensive yards from 2008 to 2009.
