LSU’s special teams unit has gained a reputation in recent years for having playmakers who are capable of taking it to the house on any given play. With a Heisman Trophy candidate in Leonard Fournette returning kicks, this notion certainly rings true again in 2015.

In addition to Fournette, the Tigers return Tre’Davious White returning punts. This gives LSU the same pair of return specialists that ranked among the best in the country last season.

Freshman Donte Jackson is another player who is expected to become one of the most dynamic return men in college football. His blinding speed is second-to-none, and his big-play potential has drawn comparisons to Tyrann Mathieu.

Jamie Keehn is an experienced punter who was recently named third team All-SEC by a preseason poll conducted at SEC Media Days. Meanwhile, junior Colby Delahoussaye returns for his third season as the Tigers’ place kicker.

Trent Domingue and Cameron Gamble are expected to battle for the kickoff specialist role, and both could potentially see action at place kicker if Delahoussaye struggles.
