Wednesday May 12, 2010Gators Picked Preseason No. 5 by Lindy's; Henry and Pouncey Tabbed Preseason All-Americans

Gainesville, Fla.

Gator football seniors Chas Henry (Dallas, Ga.) and Mike Pouncey (Lakeland, Fla.) were tabbed as preseason All-America picks by the 2010 Lindy’s Football Preview, released Tuesday, while Lindy’s also tabbed the Gators as its No. 5 preseason Top 25 team.

 

Pouncey was tabbed an Outland Trophy Watch List candidate in 2009 and finished the season with AP Second Team All-America honors. The offensive lineman has started 28 straight games for the Orange and Blue, 31 total, and has seen action in 39 games as a Gator.

 

Henry, a 2008 semifinalist and 2009 finalist for the Ray Guy Award, presented annually to the nation’s top punter by The Greater Augusta (GA) Sports Council, has been a standout special teams player for the Gators during his three-year tenure in Gainesville. Only three of Henry’s punts in 2009 were returned for positive yards (21 yards total), while 15 landed inside the 20-yard line. Henry booted eight 50-plus yards and the Gators allowed zero punt return yards in 12 of 14 games. Additionally, Henry set an SEC Championship Game record with an average of 48.8 yards on four punts vs. Alabama in 2009, hitting two for over 50 yards.
