Leonard Fournette Named To ESPN’s College Football Preseason All-American Team
The 2016 college football season is set to begin in less than two weeks on September 3rd for the LSU Tigers football team. Preseason predictions and polls are now starting to roll in and we just found another preseason prediction LSU fans will be curious to see.
First, earlier this week we found out that the LSU football team have been ranked #5 in the preseason AP poll. Earlier this month the Coach's poll was released and the Tigers were ranked #6.
Now ESPN has released their preseason All-American College football team and LSU running back Leonard Fournette has been named to the team.
According to ESPN:
As a sophomore, Leonard Fournette strung together one of the best seasons in SEC history, with 1,953 rushing yards, 22 touchdowns and an FBS-high 162.8 rushing ypg. The only way for him to top that would be with a Heisman Trophy as a junior -- and that will be within his reach if LSU remains in the playoff conversation deep into November. -- David Ching
