LSU senior La'el Collins, recently tabbed a consensus first-team All-SEC player, was named on Wednesday as the 2014 Jacobs Blocking Trophy winner. The award is annually handed out to the Southeastern Conference's most outstanding blocker.
Collins, a left tackle from Baton Rouge, is the sixth Tiger to win the prestigious award, joining Ciron Black (2009), Alan Faneca (1997), Robert Dugas (1978), J.W. Brodnax (1958) and Bill May (1936).
The league's head coaches voted on the winner.
Collins just completed his third regular season as a starter at LSU. In 2014 he led all Tiger linemen in offensive snaps played (792) and knockdowns (84.5).
