For Immediate Release - September 17, 2020


BATON ROUGE – Reigning national champion LSU placed eight players on the 2020 Preseason Coaches All-Southeastern Conference Football Team, the league office announced on Thursday.

Headlining the list of LSU players on the All-SEC team include cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. and safety JaCoby Stevens, who were both named to the first team. Stingley Jr. is coming off a freshman season that saw him earn consensus All-America honors. He led the SEC in both interceptions (6) and passes defended (21). Stingley also earned a spot on the second team as an all-purpose player.

Stevens, a senior, was named SEC Defensive Player of the Week three times in 2019 and he finished second on the team in tackles (92), sacks (5.0) and was third in tackles for loss (9.0). Stevens also intercepted three passes a year ago.

Second team selections include offensive linemen Ed Ingram and Austin Deculus along with wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr., and placekicker Cade York.

Third-team selections for the Tigers include freshman tight end Arik Gilbert and defensive tackle Glen Logan.

This marks the 18th consecutive year of the SEC Coaches Preseason All-SEC Team. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players.

LSU opens the 2020 season on Saturday, Sept. 26 against Mississippi State in Tiger Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. and will be televised on CBS.

Odds true FR Gilbert ends season on First Team list? Generational talent Stingley made First Team ALL AMERICAN as a true FR, that is beyond insane (in a GREAT way). And Gilbert is reported as the highest ranked TE recruit EVER.

Yes... I FULLY understand he has yet to plan an SEC down. But should be interesting and just hanging fun asking the question.

3 time FCS All American and potential 1st round draft pick Jabril Cox didn't make any of the all SEC teams?

When I was trying to count them before looking, Cox was certainly on my list.

Wait, hold up for one minute! You mean Alabama doesn’t have a PK rank on any of those lists? I call BS...as in Bank Shot which is usually what we get with the goal posts if we’re luck enough to be that close.

I count 9. Bama has 11. But they are a shoo-in to go to the championship and we’re supposed to maybe win 8. Utter crap.
Reply1 month
You count 9 because Stingley is listed twice (2 different positions).

Linebacker transferred in might be best D player in league and didn’t get a vote

Waddle over Marshall is fricking laughable

Nah, Waddle scares the shite out of me. Dumb that Bama has 2 first team OL though and LSU has 0, they get the benefit of the doubt there every year.

Kellen Mond LOL

I know, stop trying to make him a thing! it's just not gonna happen.

Yeah, I’ll suck a dick if Mond ends up making 2nd team or higher all SEC

He's not a bad QB, but after the way he regressed last year, he'll never be anything more than average at best.
