BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - LSU running back Terrence Magee has been awarded the coveted No. 18 for the 2014 season.

The 5'9, 214 pound senior from Franklinton, LA was LSU's number two back last year behind Jeremy Hill. 

In 2013, Magee ran the ball 86 times for 626 yards and eight touchdowns.

The No. 18 tradition started when quarterback Matt Mauck led the Tigers to a national championship in 2003. In 2007, Jacob Hester sported No. 18 and helped lead LSU to another championship.

The jersey is awarded to a player not only successful on the field but off the field as well. 

LSU welcomed 103 players to campus Sunday as the Tigers are set to open their 10th training camp under head coach Les Miles on Monday morning.  

LSU opens the 2014 season on Aug. 30 at 8 p.m. against 14th-ranked Wisconsin at NRG Stadium in the Advocare Kickoff in Houston, Texas.
