Three UL Football Players Named To PFF SBC Team Of The Year
Three members of the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns have been tabbed at the best at their respective positions in the Sun Belt Conference.
Pro Football Focus College named senior receiver Ja'Marcus Bradley, senior offensive lineman Kevin Dotson, and senior defensive back Michael Jacquet to its 2019 Sun Belt Conference Team of the Year, which was released on Tuesday.
The three helped Louisiana to a 10-2 record this season and a spot in the Sun Belt Conference Championship Game for the second-straight year.
Dotson's name on the list should come as no surprise, as earlier this week PFFC named him a first-team All-American.
A native of Plaquemine, Louisiana, and a 2018 First Team All-Sun Belt selection, Dotson was recently selected to play in the East-West Shrine Bowl in St. Petersburg, Florida on January 18th.
The 6-foot-4, 321-pound Dotson will be with Louisiana this Saturday, when they take on Appalachian St. in the Sun Belt Conference Championship Game in Boone, North Carolina.
Bradley has been invited to play in the 95th edition of the East-West Shrine Bowl, which is scheduled for Saturday, January 18 at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Florida.
The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Bradley has caught 48 passes for 760 yards and seven touchdowns this season.
A native of Ackerman, Mississippi, Bradley has compiled 148 receptions for 2,213 yards and 20 touchdowns during his career at UL.
Jacquet, who began his collegiate career as a receiver, before switching to defensive back last season, has compiled 35 tackles and two interceptions this season.
A native of Beaumont, Texas, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound Jacquet has totaled 82 tackles and four interceptions in his UL career.
Appalachian St. had the most players named to the team, with nine, including four on offense and five on defense, followed by Arkansas St. with four, and then Louisiana and Troy, each with three.
