Auburn freshman Reese Dismukes earned All-American and All-SEC honors on Thursday.

Auburn - Auburn freshman center Reese Dismukes picked up a pair of post-season awards Thursday as he was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team and the CBS Sports Freshman All-America Team. A starter all season for the Tigers, Dismukes was the only Auburn freshman named to either team for 2011.

Rated as one of the nation’s number one center prospects coming out of Spanish Fort, Dismukes started and played in all 12 games for the Tigers this season at one of the toughest positions to play for a young player. Playing all but a handful of snaps this season he helped the Tigers rush for 2,097 yards and top the 200-yard mark on the ground six times this year. Auburn rushed for at least 100 yards in eight of 12 games this season.

Auburn’s rushing attack ranked fourth in the Southeastern Conference this season and had a season-high 291 yards on the ground in a loss to Arkansas. He helped Michael Dyer earn All-SEC honors as the sophomore rushed for 1,242 yards on the year. The total was 10th all-time in rushing yards in a season in Auburn history and the second highest total in the SEC this year.

Dismukes and the Tigers will take on Virginia on New Year’s Eve in Atlanta in the Chick-fil-A Bowl. Kickoff for the game is scheduled for 6:30 Central time.
