UL’s Kevin Dotson/Two LSU Players Named First-Team All-Americans
One of the 2019 All-American teams in the world of college football has quite a bit of Louisiana flavor to it, especially on the offensive side of the ball.
Louisiana offensive guard Kevin Dotson was named a First-Team All-American by Pro Football Focus College, after a standout season campaign, in which he helped lead the Cajuns to a 10-2 record, the first 10-win season in program history.
In addition, LSU quarterback Joe Burrow and receiver Ja'Marr Chase were also both named to the first-team, as was Clemson running back Travis Etienne, a native of Jennings.
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.
Burrow is the Heisman Trophy favorite, after throwing for 4,366 yards, which ranks second in the country, to go along with 44 touchdowns, which also ranks second in the land.
Chase led the nation in touchdowns catches during the regular season, with 17, while compiling 1,457 receiving yards, which ranked second.
Burrow, Chase, and the rest of the Tigers will battle Georgia this Saturday in the SEC Championship Game in Atlanta, Georgia.
Etienne rushed for 1,386 yards and 16 touchdowns during the regular season for Clemson, who, like LSU, is still unbeaten.
