LSU Puts Two Players on AP All-America Teams
Two members of the LSU Tigers received a major college football postseason honor on Monday.
Kicker Cade York and cornerback Eli Ricks were named to the 2020 Associated Press All-American Team, which was released on Monday.
York received second-team honors, while Ricks was named to the third-team.
A sophomore from McKinney, Texas, York converted on 18-of-21 field goal attempts, including 3-of-4 from 40-49 yards and 6-of-7 from beyond 50 yards, with a long of 57 yards.
A freshman from Rancho Cucamongo, California, Ricks compiled 20 tackles in 2020, while interception four passes.
Alabama led the way, putting six players on this year's AP All-America Teams, including five on the offensive side of the football.
The Crimson Tide became the first team since 1980, when the AP All-America team began, to feature two wide receivers and two running backs, to place a quarterback, running back, and receiver on the first team.
