Amite's Schwebel, 4 more Lions earn Preseason honors

SLU Places Five on Preseason All-Southland Teams

HAMMOND, La. – Five members of the Southeastern Louisiana football team earned placement on the 2019 Preseason All-Southland Conference Teams, the league office announced on Thursday.

Southeastern placed three student-athletes on the first team in tight end Bransen Schwebel, punt returner/running back Devonte Williams, as well as Juwan Petit-Frere, who was a first team selection at both wide receiver and kick returner. Defensive end Isaac Adeyemi-Berglund and punt returner/wide receiver Austin Mitchell were named to the second team.

Petit-Frere has been named to the All-America team each of his first two seasons at Southeastern and heads into his final season with high hopes. The Orlando, Florida native caught a team-high 49 passes for 796 yards and five touchdowns, while also averaging 26.2 yards per kickoff return.

Another key cog in the Southeastern passing game this coming fall will be Schwebel. The Amite, Louisiana native grabbed 30 passes for 484 yards and three touchdowns as a junior on the way to earning first team All-Southland honors.

Williams and Mitchell were named the first and second team punt returners, respectively, after helping the Lions lead the conference with 14.2 yards per punt return in 2019. Both are poised to be big parts of the SLU offense this season, as Williams and Marcus Cooper lead the Lion rushing attack, while Mitchell will team with Petit-Frere, Schwebel, CJ Turner and Lorenzo Nunez, among others, to provide ample weapons in the passing game.

One of the veteran leaders of a young Southeastern defense will be Adeyemi-Berglund. The Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada native makes the full switch to defensive end and figures to be a key weapon for new defensive coordinator Lance Guidry. Adeyemi-Berglund heads into his final campaign hoping to build on last year’s team-high numbers of 10.0 tackles for loss and six sacks.

Adeyemi-Berglund, quarterback Chason Virgil and head coach Frank Scelfo will represent SLU at next week’s Southland Conference Football Media Day set for Thursday at the Hilton Houston Post Oak by the Galleria. The event will air on ESPN+ from 9 a.m. – 4:10 p.m. The Lion contingent will kick off the afternoon session at 1:15 p.m.

Southeastern reports to campus on July 30 and opens practice July 31. The Lions open the 2019 campaign, hosting Jacksonville State on Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. in Strawberry Stadium.
