LSU offensive tackle Will Campbell and linebacker Harold Perkins have been selected to the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) Freshman All-America team.
Campbell and Perkins were instrumental in LSU winning 10 games, reaching the SEC Championship Game and beating Purdue in the Cheez-It Citrus Bowl.
Campbell started 13 games at left tackle and helped pave the way for a Tigers’ offense that set the school record for rushing touchdowns with 39. The Monroe native played a total of 973 offensive snaps, allowed only three sacks and was whistled for just one penalty as he became the first true freshmen in school history to start at left tackle for the duration of a season.
In addition to his FWAA honor, Campbell earned second team All-SEC honors as well as Freshman All-SEC recognition. He was named SEC Offensive Lineman of the Week for his performance in LSU’s 45-35 win over Florida.
Perkins meanwhile led the Tigers in sacks (7.5), tackles for loss (13.0) and quarterback pressures (14). He finished third on the team in total tackles with 72.
Perkins earned first team All-SEC honors and was named to the Freshman All-SEC team.
LSU has had 15 players earn FWAA Freshman All-America honors since it was established in 2001.
