Coaches tab Stocker, Walker

Tennessee landed a pair of seniors on the 2010 SEC Coaches' Pre-Season All-SEC Football Team, announced Tuesday in advance of the start of SEC Media Days.

Luke Stocker was selected as the second team tight end, while Chris Walker earned a second team nod on the defensive line. Those two individuals, along with linebacker Nick Reveiz and head coach Derek Dooley, are representing Tennessee during the team's Friday appearance at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala.

Stocker had a breakout season in 2009. The Berea, Ky., native caught 29 passes for 389 yards and was second on the squad with five receiving touchdowns. He ended the regular season with a flurry, catching a combined 10 passes against Vanderbilt and Kentucky for 125 yards and two touchdowns.

Walker battled injuries throughout 2009 but still paced the Vols in sacks and tied for the team lead in interceptions. None was bigger than his pick-six against Ohio, and the Memphis native also had an interception against Georgia. Walker finished the season with 42 tackles from his end position, including a season-high seven at Florida.
