Football's York Named FWAA All-American

BATON ROUGE – Cade York, LSU’s record-setting placekicker, has been named second team All-America by the Football Writers Association of America, the organization announced on Wednesday.

The All-America honor is the second for York this year as he was also selected to the Associated Press’ second team last week.

York, a sophomore from McKinney, Texas, finished his second year with the Tigers by leading the nation in field goals of 50 yards or longer with six. York set the LSU record with a 57-yard field goal with 23 seconds remaining that lifted the Tigers to a 37-34 win over No. 6 Florida on Dec. 12.  York’s 18 field goals in 2020 tied for the most in the Southeastern Conference and ranked No. 3 nationally.

York finished the year connecting on 18-of-21 field goals and was perfect on all 36 of his PATs. He capped the season making his final eight field goal attempts, including all four in LSU’s 53-48 win over Ole Miss in the season-finale.

York currently ranks No. 5 in LSU history in career field goals with 39 and his career field goal percentage of .813 ties (39-of-48) with David Browndyke for third-best in school history
