Four Football Players Awarded Scholarships

BATON ROUGE – Four members of the LSU football team have been awarded scholarships, head coach Ed Orgeron announced on Tuesday afternoon.

Wide receiver Tiger Scheyd, fullback Trey Gallman, punter Zach Von Rosenberg and offensive lineman Turner Simmers are now scholarship players for LSU.

“We are very proud of all of our walk-ons,” Orgeron said. “The work that they do every day is very important to our program. I wish I could give a scholarship to every walk on that is a part of our team. It is a very proud moment for our team when we get to reward their teammates for the hard work that they put in to play for the Tigers.”

Scheyd, Gallman, and Simmers are all seniors, while Von Rosenberg is a sophomore. Simmers graduated last spring with a degree in kinesiology, while Gallman graduated earlier this month in sports administration. Scheyd is on pace to graduate in December.

Heading into the season-opener against Miami, Von Rosenberg is listed as LSU’s starting punter, Gallman is the No. 2 fullback, while Simmers is third on the depth chart at right guard.
