Kentucky Wildcats safety A.J. Stamps and kicker Austin MacGinnis have been named to the 2015 Preseason Media Days All-SEC Team, the league office announced Friday.

Stamps was named to the third-team defense as a defensive back, while MacGinnis was a third-team placekicker. Stamps had a solid first season for the Wildcats after transferring to UK from East Mississippi Community College. The senior DB moved from cornerback to safety his first season and started all 12 games while notched 56 tackles, four interceptions and five pass breakups.

MacGinnis set six school records in his collegiate debut season, totaling 21 field goals, the most in Kentucky history. He had the most field goals in the SEC last fall, also leading all NCAA freshmen. MacGinnis finished with a school-record 104 points -- equaling the SEC lead -- and was one of only five kickers in the nation with three field goals of 50+ yards.
