Eight Tigers on SEC Media Preseason All-SEC Teams

BATON ROUGE – Leonard Fournette, Vadal Alexander and Jalen Mills led a group of eight LSU football players who earned 10 mentions on the 2015 Southeastern Conference media’s preseason All-SEC Teams, the league office announced Friday.

A sophomore running back, Fournette led the way with three total selections, including a spot as an All-SEC First Team running back. He was also on the second team as an all-purpose player and a third-teamer as a return specialist.

Alexander was chosen as a first-team offensive lineman, and Mills was placed on the first-team defense at defensive back.

All-SEC Second Team members include linebacker Kendell Beckwith and cornerback Tre’Davious White, as well as Fournette at all-purpose.

Defensive tackle Davon Godchaux, safety Jamal Adams and punter Jamie Keehn were all All-SEC Third Team selections, along with Fournette at return specialist.

LSU’s 10 All-SEC selections were tied with Auburn for second-most in the conference behind Alabama’s 12. No other teams received more than seven mentions.

Fournette and South Carolina’s Pharoh Cooper were the only players to earn three selections to the All-SEC Teams.

LSU announced Friday the team will hold its annual Fan Day on Sunday, Aug. 16 on campus. More details will come later.

The Tigers open the season on Sept. 5 against McNeese State in Tiger Stadium. The game will kick off at 6:30 p.m. CT. Tickets to the game are available for purchase at www.LSUtix.net with group tickets starting at $20.
