TR TV: LSU HOF - Mawae, Albergamo
Kevin Mawae, a 1993 graduate of LSU, was a third-team All-American, first-team All-SEC selection and four-year starter on the offensive line for the Tigers from 1990-93. Mawae excelled as one of top centers in the nation during a period when LSU experienced four straight losing seasons and garnered minimal national recognition as a team. He earned Freshman All-SEC honors in 1990, and then was named All-SEC each of his remaining three years with the Tigers.
A second-round NFL draft choice by Seattle, he played four years for the Seahawks and eight years for the New York Jets, during which time he was named All-Pro six times. He now plays for the Tennessee Titans. He is a member of the NFL Players Association Executive Committee, serving on the Diversity and Competition committees of that organization. An active community member, he has raised over $300,000 for autism research.
Dr. Joseph "Nacho" Albergamo:
Dr. Joseph "Nacho" Albergamo, a 1988 graduate of LSU, was one of the most decorated student-athletes in LSU history, excelling both on the field and in the classroom. He was a consensus All-American at center in 1987, anchoring an offensive line that paved the way for a then-school record total offense mark of over 4,800 yards. A four-year letterman from 1984-87, he was also named All-Southeastern Conference in 1987.
Albergamo was also a two-time Academic All-American in 1986 and 1987 and a three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll. He was named the Toyota Leader of the Year in 1987 and was also named one of just 11 National Football Foundation Scholar Athletes, while also being named an NCAA Top Six Finalist. He also earned both an NCAA and SEC Postgraduate Scholarship. A 1993 graduate of the LSU Medical School, Albergamo is now a practicing physician at The Baton Rouge Clinic.
