2019 Joe Moore Award: Most Outstanding Offensive Line Unit

COLLEGE FOOTBALL’S MOST OUTSTANDING OFFENSIVE LINE UNIT

The Joe Moore Award for the Most Outstanding Offensive Line Unit in College Football today revealed the selection of three finalists for this year’s national honor, announced The Foundation for Teamwork, which has presented the unique award since 2015.

***

THIS YEAR’S WINNER …

Louisiana State University Offensive Line

LSU Tigers

  • The Tigers lead FBS in total offense (554.3 total ypg).
  • LSU is 3rd in FBS, averaging 7.79 yds/play (only trail Oklahoma and Alabama).
  • 500+ yards of total offense in 9 of 12 games, including wins over four teams ranked in the AP Top 10 at the time (at Alabama and Texas, and vs Auburn and Florida).
  • The Tigers had 481 total yds vs Georgia in SEC CG, 138 more than any other UGA opponent this year.
  • LSU’s O-line led the way to the most productive offensive season in school history, establishing school records for points (621), points per game (47.8), total offense (7,207), passing yards (5,209), 50-point games (6), and games with at least 40 points (10).

The LSU Tigers offensive line has been selected as the 2019 winner of the Joe Moore Award for the Most Outstanding Offensive Line Unit in College Football. The announcement was made by The Foundation for Teamwork which has presented this unique award since 2015. The Tigers’ offensive line unit, coached by James Cregg, are the second team from the Southeastern Conference to win the only award in college football that recognizes a group or a unit.

What Voters Said

“Passing as much as this offense did this year puts a unique strain on the group up front and boy did they respond. Sitting and watching these guys on film, the number of pass protection reps that I wrote down ‘Teach Tape Worthy’ next to in my notes was remarkable. Pass pro is definitely not passive for these guys.”

“They define what the teamwork criteria is about. They really worked well together in their combination blocks and in pass pro. Always a lot of [defenders] on the ground when the play was over. Played to the echo of the whistle on a regular.”

The 2019 Joe Moore Award finalists included:

  • Alabama Crimson Tide
  • Louisiana State University
  • Ohio State University
  • Oregon Ducks

2018 Joe Moore Award winner: Oklahoma Sooners

LOUISIANA STATE UNIVERSITY TIGERS | SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE

Coach: Ed Orgeron

LSU Players to watch:

*Junior OC Lloyd Cushenberry III (6-4/309)

Cushenberry started all 13 games at center for an LSU offense that set the school record for points (621), points per game (47.8) and total offense (7,206). Cushenberry, along with OG Damien Lewis and OG Adrian Magee, who also started every game on the offensive line for the Tigers, helped pave the way for the first team in SEC history to feature a 4,000-yard passer, a 1,000-yard rusher and two 1,000-yard receivers.

Senior OG Damien Lewis (6-3/322)

Lewis wraps up his second year as a starter on the offensive line after joining the Tigers as a junior college transfer for the 2018 season. A powerful offensive lineman with tremendous leg strength, Lewis is the strongest player on the team with a 635 pound squat and a bench press of nearly 500 pounds. Lewis is a punishing blocker who excels in both pass protection and running game. He is one of only two offensive linemen to start every game for the Tigers in 2018 and 2019, joining center Lloyd Cushenberry III. 

Senior OG Adrian Magee (6-4/335)

Magee is another powerful lineman with tremendous strength, with a deadlift of over 600 pounds. A versatile lineman that started at three different positions for the Tigers in 2018. He was one of five Tigers to received the 2019 Butch Duhe Award. The award is given to one whose character and contributions to the LSU Football team most personify the idea of unselfishness, dependability and commitment to the team.

*Junior FS JaCoby Stevens (6-2/225)

Stevens, who was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week three times this year, finished second on the team with 82 tackles to go with 8.5 tackles for loss, 5.0 sacks and three interceptions.

Senior TE Steven Sullivan (6-7/242)

Sullivan is one of the tallest receivers in school history at 6-foot-7. He uses his large frame and outstanding leaping ability to his advantage. Sullivan has shown good hands and the ability to create yards after the catch. Due to his size and speed, NFL scouts are intrigued with his potential. He has been invited to the Senior Bowl. Don’t be surprised when he gets drafted ahead of some more productive college players.

***

Note: LB Michael Divinity Jr. has been away from the program due to a personal matter. He is not eligible to return to the field unless LSU advances to the national championship game. While, running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire suffered a hamstring injury during practice, his status is questionable.

OKLAHOMA SOONERS | BIG 12 CONFERENCE

Coach: Lincoln Riley

Oklahoma Players to watch:

**Sophomore OC Creed Humphrey (6-5/319)

Humphrey, a Rimington Trophy finalist and team captain from Shawnee, Okla., has started 25 of his 27 career games for the Sooners at the center position. He is the anchor of a line that has paved the way for Oklahoma to lead the nation with 8.2 yards per play and 11.4 yards per pass attempt (min. 10 attempts per game) and rank second nationally in yards per game (554.2), third in yards per completion (16.0) and passing efficiency rating (195.9), fifth in third-down conversion percentage (50.7) and eighth in yards per rush (6.1). In 799 plays this season, Humphrey has registered 93 knockdowns without allowing a sack. Humphrey was named Big 12 Co-Offensive Lineman of the Year, a first-team All-Big 12 selection and an Academic All-Big 12 Second Team honoree.

**Sophomore RT Adrian Ealy (6-6/325)

Humphrey and All-Big 12 Second Team selection Adrian Ealy anchor an OU offensive line that was named a Joe Moore Award semifinalist for the second straight year. The unit paves the way for a Sooners offense that ranks first nationally in total offense (564.3 ypg), yards per pass attempt (11.7), yards per play (8.4) and third with its 6.4 yards per rush. With OU possibly down to their fourth string running back, the OL will need to perform, and perform well.

Senior CB Parnell Motley (6-0/182)

Motley has accounted for 34 total tackles (27 solo, one for loss) this season and leads the Sooners with four forced fumbles and 11 pass breakups. The senior from Washington, D.C., paces the Big 12 in fumbles forced, is tied for third in pass breakups and tied for fifth with 12 passes defended (11 breakups, one interception). All four of his forced fumbles came against conference opponents.

***rFreshman PK Gabe Brkic (6-2/195)

Brkic took over kicking duties prior to the Sooners’ game against Texas Tech on Sept. 28 and is 14 for 14 on field goal attempts and 45 for 45 on PATs. The redshirt freshman from Chardon, Ohio, is the only placekicker nationally who has made all of his field goal and extra point tries this season (59 for 59).

*Junior DT LaRon Stokes (6-4/275)

Stokes is the fifth Sooner and first since 2005 to be named Big 12 Defensive Newcomer of the Year. The Tulsa, Okla., native has made a significant impact on the defensive line during his first season at OU. A junior who transferred from Northeastern Oklahoma A&M, Stokes has started nine of 12 games at tackle, recording 13 tackles (six solo, seven assists) and 4.5 tackles for loss.

***

Note: According to Rivals’ Sooner Scoop, WR Trejan Bridges, DL Ronnie Perkins and RB Rhamondre Stevenson will be suspended for the playoff semifinal. RB Trey Sermon is out for the season because of a knee injury. RB Kennedy Brooks is battling a neck injury, and his status is questionable against LSU in the Peach Bowl.
