BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

LSU running back Leonard Fournette has been named to the ESPN preseason All-American team.

As a sophomore, Leonard Fournette strung together one of the best seasons in SEC history, with 1,953 rushing yards, 22 touchdowns and an FBS-high 162.8 rushing ypg. The only way for him to top that would be with a Heisman Trophy as a junior -- and that will be within his reach if LSU remains in the playoff conversation deep into November. -- David Ching

The SEC had seven players named to the All-America team, led by Alabama's four selections.
