Sunday night, LSU hosted their annual football awards banquet. The biggest award given away on the night was the Charles McClendon Award, given to the team’s most valuable player. Wide receiver Jarvis Landry was honored with the award due to his incredible junior season.
Landry led the team in receptions, receiving yards, and touchdown receptions with 75 receptions, 1,172 yards and 10 touchdowns. He was a big threat on third down catching six of his ten touchdowns. Landry constantly made remarkable receptions, often times stealing the ball from the defender.
Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and running back Jeremy Hill shared the Percy E. Roberts Outstanding Offensive Award.
The Percy E. Roberts Outstanding Defensive Player Award was given to junior defensive tackle Ego Ferguson.
For their performance, leadership, and commitment Craig Loston and Lamin Barrow earned the George Wallace Memorial Award.
Senior linebacker Seth Fruge was the recipient of the Dr. Charles E. Coates Scholar-Athlete of the Year Award.
The Special Teams Coaches Award went to Alfred Blue, James Hairston, and Colby Delahoussaye.
It was a fun night for the LSU players who received recognition for their hard work all season. Now the banquet is over and the focus shifts completely to beating Iowa in the bowl game.
