LSU Spring Practice Wrap-up

Last year, LSU was one T.J. Yeldon screen pass away from playing in their second consecutive SEC football title game. Now, coach Les Miles and the Tigers look forward to next season.

Things will look much different this year than last year, on both offense and defense. LSU lost seven starters on defense with major voids needing filling. Some of the most notable Tigers leaving are defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery. Look for sophomore Danielle Hunter to replace the duo for LSU. Hunter, standing 6’5” and weighing 24o pounds, recorded a game-high eight tackles and added two sacks for the White team in LSU’s spring game. Miles mentioned a few other players that stood out over the spring.

In the spring game LSU appeared to be more explosive with new offensive coordinator Cam Cameron’s new offense. Quarterback Zach Mettenberger played the first half in the spring game and completed 12 of 20 passes for 236 yards and two touchdowns. Odell Beckham had a big day receiving, gaining over 20o yards during the spring game. With the return of Jeremy Hill and Kenny Hillard, the Tigers will get back their top two rushers from last year. Hill rushed for 755 yards with 12 touchdowns while Hillard rushed for 464 yards and six touchdowns last season. With Hill and Hillard running the ball and Mettenberger continuing to develop, the Tigers look to be even more explosvie on offense and that’s what Les Miles wants out of Cam Cameron’s offense.

Notable opponents for LSU in the 2013 season will be Florida on October 12th, at Alabama on November 9th, and against Texas A&M November 23rd.
