FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Darren McFadden can add yet another award to his already impressive resume.

McFadden was one of two Arkansas players to receive first-team all-Southeastern Conference honors in voting by league coaches. Razorbacks linebacker Sam Olajubutu also made the first team, the conference announced Tuesday.

Arkansas freshman Felix Jones was a second-team pick as a return specialist.

McFadden, named first-team all-SEC and SEC freshman of the year by The Associated Press on Monday, ran for 1,113 yards on 176 carries this season. He was the seventh SEC freshman -- and first at Arkansas -- to run for 1,000 yards. McFadden also had 11 touchdowns, an Arkansas freshman record.

Olajubutu, a junior, led the Razorbacks (4-7) with 110 tackles. He also had 4.5 sacks, eight quarterback hurries, three pass breakups and a forced fumble.

Jones leads the nation with 31.9 yards per kickoff return -- his 543 yards on kickoff returns are the second most in a season at Arkansas.

Jones was also a threat from the backfield. He rushed for 56.9 yards per game and caught eight passes for 100 yards.
