BATON ROUGE - LSU football tied for the most selections on the 2016 Preseason Coaches All-SEC Football Team with 13 players making the cut, according to the league office on Thursday morning.

Voting by SEC coaches took place during the first two weeks of August. Alabama was tied with LSU after they also received 13 preseason all-conference selections. Tennessee was the only other university that received double digit numbers of selections.

Running back Leonard Fournette was a natural selection for the first team. Center Ethan Pocic was also selected on the first team offensive side of the ball. On defense, linebacker Kendell Beckwith and defensive back Tre’Davious White made appearances.

For the second team, offensive lineman William Clapp was selected, and Malachi Dupre appeared in one of the two wide receivers. Defensive lineman Davon Godchaux, linebacker Arden Key and defensive back Jamal Adams were also second team selections.

LSU Quarterback Brandon Harris is at the helm of the third-team offense. Derrius Guice and Travin Dural also appeared there with Lewis Neal on the defensive line.

The Tigers roar into historic Lambeau Field on Sept. 3 to take on Wisconsin in their 2:30 p.m. season opener. It will air right here on WBRZ.
