The SEC announced its 2015 SEC Football Legends class on Tuesday and representing the Tigers is former LSU lineman and All-American Alan Faneca.

The 2015 class will be honored at the 2015 SEC Football "Weekend of Champions" on December 4th and 5th in Atlanta, Ga. Per SECSports.com:
quote:

LSU – Alan Faneca, Offensive Guard, 1995-97:
A dominating blocker for LSU from 1995-97, Alan Faneca earned consensus first-team All-America honors as a junior in 1997. He was a finalist for the Outland Trophy in 1997 and was named the winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, given to the best blocker in the SEC, in 1997. Faneca anchored an LSU offensive line that helped the Tigers, which featured All-American back Kevin Faulk, lead the SEC in rushing in 1996 and 1997. He opted to leave LSU after his junior season in 1997 and was the first round draft pick of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He won a Super Bowl with the Steelers in 2005 and retired from the NFL in 2010 after being named to the Pro Bowl nine times and to the All-Pro first team six times.

@blueboy, I cannot agree with you more. It was the only opportunity I've ever seen for an offensive lineman to receive the Superbowl MVP and they blew it!

Can't think of anyone better. Great player and a great person. Easily a future hall of famer as well.

And he did it all while controlling his epilepsy.

He should have been the offensive MVP in the 2005 Super Bowl. Madden kept pointing out that all of Pittsburg's positive offensive plays directly involved him. He was right, but Ward got it because "you don't give MVP trophies to offensive linemen."

"Toughest SOB I've ever seen on LSU's OL"

Damn good OL and I'm not taking anything away from him but, I would have to put him up as a close second to Eric Andolsek on the toughest Tiger OL list.
