Honors keep rolling in for the Tigers

On Tuesday, the conference's coaches released their first and second team All-SEC selections.

The honors and awards keep rolling in for LSU.

One day after the Associated Press released its All-Southeastern Conference teams, which featured 10 Tigers, the conference’s coaches released their All-SEC selections on Tuesday afternoon - and 10 LSU players were named to the first or second team.

The mark ties the school record set by the 2007 team.

First-team LSU players were wide receiver Rueben Randle, offensive guard Will Blackwell, offensive tackle Alex Hurst, defensive end Sam Montgomery, cornerback Tyrann Mathieu and cornerback Morris Claiborne.

Second-team selections included linebacker Ryan Baker, running back Spencer Ware, kicker Drew Alleman and punter Brad Wing.

Since the university hired Les Miles in 2005, LSU has placed 26 players on the Coaches' All-SEC first team and 46 total players on the first or second team.

 

Quick hitters…

- Blackwell and Hurst were mainstays on an offensive line that led the SEC with only 14 sacks allowed.

- Randle’s 18.1 yards a reception ranked second among the conference’s top 10 receivers.

- Montgomery’s nine sacks led the team and was good for third-best in the SEC.

- Mathieu led LSU in tackles (70).

- Baker finished the season with 58 tackles.

- Claiborne’s six interceptions ranked second in the SEC.

- Alleman’s last missed field goal came on Sept. 24 against West Virginia.

- Ware is tied with freshman Kenny Hilliard for a team-high eight rushing touchdowns.

- 23 of Wing’s 50 punts were downed inside the 20-yard line.
