South Carolina junior wide receiver Pharoh Cooper provided most of the bright spots for the Gamecocks this season.
That was recognized on Tuesday when Cooper was named to the Coaches All-SEC Team as both a wide receiver and an all-purpose player on offense for 2015.
Cooper led the Gamecocks with 66 receptions for 973 reception and eight touchdowns this past season. He also threw for a touchdown and rushed for another.
Cooper, a team captain, caught 35 percent of the team’s passes. His reception total was more than the rest of the Gamecocks’ wide receivers combined. It also marked the seventh-highest total in school history
Cooper’s 973 receiving yards was the sixth-best in a single season at South Carolina.
South Carolina linebacker Skai Moore was named to the Second Team. Moore led the Gamecocks in both tackles and interceptions for the second time in as many years. The junior has led the team in tackles each of his three seasons in Columbia, S.C.
