BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - Two LSU football players have landed on the AP Preseason All-America team.
Junior wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase and sophomore cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. are both of first-team selections.
Chase is a 6-foot-0, 208-pounder, who is the reigning Biletnikoff Award winner after a monster season in 2019. He led the nation in receiving yards (1,780) and touchdowns (20) on 84 receptions. He is LSU’s most decorated receiver in school history. Chase is the SEC record-holder for touchdown receptions and receiving yards in a season. He also became the school’s first receiver to become a Unanimous All-American and eleventh in school history.
Stingley is a 6-foot-1, 195-pounder, who was a consensus All-American in 2019. He started all 15 games and finished his freshman year leading the SEC in both interceptions (6) and passes defended (21). He also tied an SEC Championship Game record with two interceptions in LSU’s 37-10 win over Georgia.
A total of 23 players named All-American are on teams that aren’t playing football in the fall.
