The Southeastern Conference announced its 2010 Freshmen Academic Honor Roll today and the Crimson Tide football squad simply dominated. A full dozen of the Alabama players were honored for their first year academic achievements -- no other school's football team produced more than six.

In fact, the Alabama football team was first among all men's sports from every school across the conference. The UA athletics department also points out that the team led the nation last year with 13 graduates on its roster, "a number that increased to 21 for the National Championship Game following December ceremonies." It's part of a trend we've noticed since Coach Saban's arrival at the Capstone.

The players include:

Player Major
Kenny Bell Health Sciences
Chris Bonds Kinesiology
D.J. Fluker Health Sciences
Nico Johnson Criminal Justice
Kendall Kelly Undeclared
Eddie Lacy Undeclared
A.J. McCarron Public Relations
William Ming Pre-Business

A total of 547 freshmen student-athletes were named to the 2010 SEC Freshmen Academic Honor Roll, including a combined 43 Alabama student-athletes representing 13 teams. The University of South Carolina topped the list with a total of 67 student athletes.

To be included on the conference's freshman academic honor roll each student-athlete must have a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or above while completing at least 24 semester hours of non-remedial credit. In terms of athletics they must be on scholarship or a letter winner as a member of the varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.

A list of the rest of Alabama's Freshman Honor Roll honorees follows the jump.
