HAMMOND – The two-time Southland Conference champion Southeastern Louisiana football team placed seven student-athletes on the 2014 Louisiana Sports Writers Association All-Louisiana Collegiate Football Teams, which were released by the LSWA on Christmas.

 

Representing SLU on the first team were senior quarterback Bryan Bennett, senior offensive lineman Jonathan Braddock, senior linebacker Isiah Corbett and senior place-kicker Ryan Adams. Senior wide receiver Devante Scott, junior defensive back Harlan Miller and junior kick returner Xavier Roberson were all honorable mention selections.

 

Bennett, a Granada Hills, California native, was named first team All-Louisiana for the second straight year. A finalist for the Walter Payton Award, the Southland Conference Offensive Player of the Year threw for 2,357 yards and 18 touchdowns, while rushing for a team-high 669 yards and 15 scores. The school’s career leader in rushing touchdowns and touchdowns responsible for, Bennett led FCS in yards per completion and finished his two-year career with a 14-0 record as a starter in Southland Conference games.

 

Helping clear the way for Bennett and company to rack up 467 yards and 40.2 points per game was Braddock, who started every game at right tackle for the Lions. The Ripley, Mississippi native added an all-state nod to his previous first team All-Southland selection.

 

Braddock was not the only Lion to add to previous postseason honors, as Corbett was named first team All-Louisiana after previously earning first team All-Southland honors as well as All-America accolades from both the Sports Network and Associated Press. The Belle Glade, Florida product was the leader of a SLU defense that led the league in scoring (17.7 points per game allowed) and total (293.2 yards per game allowed) defense. He also led the Lions with 12.0 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks and four interceptions to go with 72 tackles.

 

Rounding out the first team Lion honorees was Adams, who also was the first team All-Southland choice. In his first season as SLU’s starting kicker, the Dayton, Ohio native connected on 16-of-18 field goals on the year. He set a school record with a 55-yard field goal in a 30-22 win over Northwestern State and was one of four FCS kickers to net multiple 50-yard field goals.

 

Bennett’s top target in 2014 was Scott, who adds to his previous second team All-Southland notice. The Ferriday, Louisiana native finished the season with 50 catches for 1,064 yards and six touchdowns. Scott is the second player in school history to top 1,000 yards receiving in a season, joining Southeastern Athletics Hall of Famer Felton Huggins.

 

Along with Corbett, one of the other standouts on a talented Southeastern defense was Miller, a first team All-Southland and third team AP All-America pick. The Kentwood, Louisiana native was the top cover man on a SLU unit that led FCS in pass defense efficiency. Miller finished with three interceptions on the way to being named first team All-Louisiana for the second straight season.

 

Roberson was also named to the All-Louisiana team for the second straight season. The Atlanta, Georgia product was also a second team All-Southland pick at both kick returner and all-purpose player, while earning third team All-America honors from the Sports Network. He was third in FCS with 30.8 yards per kickoff return and finished the season as the school’s career leader in kickoff return average, yardage and touchdowns.

 

Louisiana-Lafayette took home two of the state’s top honors, as sophomore running back Elijah McGuire was named Offensive Player of the Year and senior defensive lineman Christian Ringo was selected Defensive Player of the Year. LSU running back Leonard Fournette was tabbed the state’s top freshman, while senior quarterback Cody Sokol of Louisiana Tech was named the Louisiana Newcomer of the Year. Grambling’s Broderick Fobbs earned Coach of the Year honors.

 

The 2014 All-Louisiana teams were selected by the state’s sports information directors and members of the state media.

 

Miller and Roberson will be two of the top returners for the Lions, who will open spring practice on Feb. 24. The Spring Game is set for March 28.
