Billy Cannon of LSU was SEC Player of the Year for both the 1958 and 1959 seasons.

Coaches and media of the Southeastern Conference (SEC) bestow the following individual awards at the end of each college football season.

Player of the Year

Beattie Feathers of Tennessee was the first recipient of the award, for the 1933 season.

A single award was issued for the 1933–2001 seasons, except for 1943 when no award was given due to World War II. Starting in 2002, an offensive and defense award is issued each season; a special teams award was added in 2004. In a few instances, different selectors have chosen different recipients, or two players have shared the award. Several players have won the award twice; Herschel Walker was a three-time recipient (1980–1982).
