Six Tigers Selected to PFF All-SEC Teams

COLUMBIA, Mo. – Released on Monday, six members of the University of Missouri football team earned All-Southeastern Conference honors by PFF.

Senior running back Tyler Badie, graduate center Michael Maietti and sophomore kicker Harrison Mevis were listed on the first team. Sophomore cornerback Kris Abrams-Draine, redshirt junior offensive lineman Javon Foster and redshirt senior offensive lineman Hyrin White were named honorable mention.

Maietti, Foster and White anchor the offensive line that blocks for Doak Walker Award finalist Badie who’s rewritten Mizzou’s record book this season. On Missouri’s final drive at Arkansas, Badie rushed nine times for 51 yards and a five-yard touchdown. On the drive, he set a new MU single-season school record with 1,604 yards. Saturday marked his fifth game of the 2021 season with 200+ yards, the only SEC player this century to accomplish the feat.

The New Orleans native now ranks seventh in Mizzou history with 2,740 career rushing yards and ninth on the career rushing touchdowns list with 23. He’s also tied for ninth on the single-season rushing touchdowns (14) list. The score was Badie’s 108th point this season, tying for ninth on the single season scoring list.

Mevis, a two-time SEC Player of the Week in 2021, hit a career-long 56-yard boot to send the game to overtime at Boston College. He is now 3-for-3 on the season and 6-for-7 in his career from beyond 50 yards. On the season, Mevis is 20-of-22 in field goals, including 11-of-13 from 40-49.

Abrams-Draine, a starter on offense for the Tigers in 2020, totals 33 tackles, three interceptions and seven passes broken up in 12 games played in the secondary. His season high of seven tackles came at Vanderbilt. Also handling kick return duties, he scored on a 100-yard return against Tennessee. On the season, he has 18 returns for 430 yards.
