BATON ROUGE – Eleven members of the LSU football team have been named to the First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll, the league office announced on Thursday.

LSU’s list includes nine true freshmen and a pair of transfers in punter Jay Bramblett and kicker Trey Finison.

Freshman All-America linebacker Harold Perkins, who is majoring in sports administration, along with Freshman All-SEC tight end Mason Taylor, a management manager, headlined the list for the Tigers.

Bramblett, who earned second team Academic All-America honors, made the list after transferring from Notre Dame. Bramblett is pursuing a master’s degree in leadership.

Other LSU players on the list include: offensive lineman Bo Bordelon (management), long snapper Jake Davis (biochemistry), kicker Nathan Dibert (construction management), quarterback George Hamsley (international trade and finance), wide receiver Cowinn Helaire (chemical engineering), wide receiver Landon Ibieta (kinesiology), and offensive lineman Wes Woodward (political science).

The First-Year SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2022-23 academic calendar. In order to be considered for this honor, student-athletes must have maintained at least a 3.0 grade point average during that timeframe.

look, any guy getting good grades is a great thing, but i’m giving the biochem and chemical engineering guys a hell of a lot more credit than the Sports Admin and Kinesiology guys.

This is a great accomplishment. It’s extremely to go through all the football workout, get enough sleep to keep up the workout, go to classes & do other extracurricular activities while maintaining a 3.0 or better GPA. Aligned…BK influence is shown. Personally I for one am impressed and hope the trend continues into the future.

If the kids are disciplined enough to go to class and excel then they will be disciplined and hard working on the field too. You should care about it.

They should care about it if they want to play. Many of them will have futures outside of football. Know some of you don't care about them outside of wearing the uniform.
