Florida LSU Football

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow (9) warms up before Saturday's game against Florida in Tiger Stadium on Oct. 12, 2019.

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow, safety Grant Delpit and cornerback Derek Stingley were each named first-team AP Midseason All-America Tuesday afternoon, the association announced.

The 6-foot-4, 216-pound Burrow is a Heisman favorite and is leading a Tigers offense that leads the nation with 52.5 points per game.

Through six games, Burrow ranks fourth nationally in completions (148), second in passing yards (2,157) and passing touchdowns (25), and his 79.6 completion percentage ranks first in the nation.

Delpit, a 6-foot-3, 203-pound junior, ranks fourth on LSU with 27 total tackles, and has recorded 1½ tackles for loss and an interception.

Stingley, a Dunham School graduate and Baton Rouge native, is the only true freshman named to the Midseason All-America Team. Memphis redshirt freshman running back Kenneth Gainwell was named to the second-team.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Stingley ranks seventh nationally with three interceptions and third nationally with 12 passes defended.
