Marcus Lattimore has been unanimously voted the 2010 Southeastern Conference Freshman of the Year by the AP.  Lattimore was also named to the All-SEC First Team Offense. 

As a true freshman for the South Carolina Gamecocks, #21 has carried the football 248 times for 1,198 rushing yards and 17 rushing touchdowns.  Lattimore eclipsed the 100 yard mark four times this season, running for a career high 212 yards against Florida in The Swamp, where he helped the Gamecocks to their SEC Eastern Division Championship clinching win.  In addition to his ground game (99.83 ypg), Lattimore has excellent skills as a receiver out of the backfield.  He's caught 26 balls for 364 yards and 2 touchdowns in 12 games (Though, let's not forget he missed a game and a half), displaying tremendous ability in the open field.  Marcus Lattimore has racked up 1,562 all-purpose yards and 19 touchdowns in what has been a very stellar start to his career in Columbia, and is deserving of the accolades and attention he's getting.     

It's a huge honor for Marcus to have received each of these recognitions.  Congratulations, Latti.
