Four Tigers in Mobile for Senior Bowl

BATON ROUGE – Four members of LSU’s national championship football team are in Mobile, Ala., this week as they will take part in the Senior Bowl, which is the premier college football all-star game.
 
LSU will be represented in Saturday’s game by center Lloyd Cushenberry, offensive guard Damien Lewis, long snapper Blake Ferguson and wide receiver/tight end Stephen Sullivan.
 
Kickoff for the contest, which is played at Ladd-Peebles Stadium, is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. and will be televised on the NFL Network.
 
Cushenberry, a second team All-America selection and a December graduate from LSU, started 28 straight games over his final two seasons leading the Tigers to a 25-3 mark over that span.
 
Lewis, who spent two years with the Tigers after transferring from the junior college ranks, started all 28 games of his career at right guard alongside Cushenberry. The Cushenberry-Lewis duo helped pave the way for the most successful offensive season in LSU history as the Tigers set numerous school records in leading the nation in scoring (48.4) and total offense (568.4) in 2019.
 
Sullivan caught 12 passes for 130 yards as a senior in 2019, splitting time as a tight end and wide receiver for the Tigers. He capped his career with 46 receptions for 712 yards and three touchdowns. He graduated from LSU in August of 2019, becoming the first person in his immediate family to earn a college degree.
 
Ferguson, one of the most decorated student-athletes in LSU football history, earned two degrees from LSU – a bachelor’s degree in marketing followed by a Master’s in business administration. He was twice named a permanent team captain and was named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll four times during his career.
 
He capped his career by playing in 53 consecutive games.
