BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - LSU’s record-setting placekicker Cade York and cornerback Derek Stingley Jr. have been named first-team All-SEC by the league’s coaches, the SEC announced Tuesday, Dec. 22.

York set a new LSU record with his game-winning 57-yard field goal that beat Florida, 37-34. He is tied for the SEC lead in total field goals with 18 in 2020. He connected on 18-of-21 field goals and six of those kicks were from 50 yards or longer. York finished the season by making his last eight field goal attempts, including all four in LSU’s 53-48 win over Ole Miss in the season finale.

Stingley, a first-team All-American in 2019, recorded 27 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, and five pass breakups this year. Last year as a true freshman, Stingley earned first-team honors from the Associated Press and was named to the second team by coaches.
