Joe Burrow, Grant Delpit and Lloyd Cushenberry will represent LSU at SEC Media Days next week, alongside head coach Ed Orgeron. The program made the news official today:

Burrow is also the first player in LSU history to throw for at least 2,500 yards and rush for at least 350 yards in a season. Last year, Burrow threw for 2,894 yards and rushed for 399 yards.

Delpit is coming off an outstanding sophomore season as he became just the ninth unanimous All-America in school history. Delpit led the SEC in interceptions (5) and finished second in the league in passes defended (14) a year ago.

The junior from Houston has already been named to several preseason All-America teams heading into 2019.

Cushenberry enters his second season as LSU’s starting center after serving in that capacity for all 13 games a year ago. Cushenberry was one of only four offensive players to start every game in 2018.

Burrow and Delpit were mortal locks, as the former is the starting quarterback and one of the clear leaders on the team, while the latter is maybe the best overall player in the SEC and a unanimous All-American pick. Cushenberry has already gotten some preseason All-SEC love, so it’s not a big surprise, but it’s still a nice honor for a veteran player who really broke out last year as a stabilizing force in an offensive line that struggled to keep a consistent lineup on the field.

SEC Media Days will begin Monday, and LSU will join Florida in the first session.
