Tuesday brought another slew of postseason honors for LSU’s players and coaches.
Defensive coordinator John Chavis was named the winner of the 2011 Broyles Award, given annually to the nation’s top assistant coach.
LSU has also placed 10 players on the coaches’ All-Southeastern Conference team.
Six Tigers made the first team – offensive linemen Will Blackwell and Alex Hurst, wide receiver Rueben Randle, defensive end Sam Montgomery and cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Tyrann Mathieu.
Four other LSU players made the second team: running back Spencer Ware, linebacker Ryan Baker, place-kicker Drew Alleman and punter Brad Wing. Wing was just one of two freshman to make the All-SEC squad.
