Football: Offensive Line Named to Joe Moore Award Midseason Honor Roll

Louisiana has now been recognized on the honor roll in back-to-back seasons

Offensive Line

LAFAYETTE – No. 23 Louisiana Football’s offensive line has been recognized as one of the top units in the country after earning a spot on the 2020 Joe Moore Award Midseason honor roll, The Foundation for Teamwork announced on Monday.

The Ragin’ Cajuns are one of two Sun Belt Conference program’s recognized on the midseason list, joining Coastal Carolina.

Under the guidance of offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Rob Sale, the line currently ranks 10th nationally and first in the Sun Belt in sacks allowed (1.00) and eighth nationally and first in the Sun Belt in tackles-for-loss allowed (3.62).

The interior of the line has been solid all year, with Ken Marks (LG), Shane Vallot (C) and O’Cyrus Torrence (RG) not missing a game in 2020. Max Mitchell has started in every game in which he appeared, sharing time at both tackle positions, while Zach Robertson and Carlos Rubio shared time on the outside.

All 22 units gained the attention of the Joe Moore Award voting committee as it moves closer to announcing the selection of semifinalists on Dec. 7 and finalists on Dec. 21. Selection of the 2020 Joe Moore Award winner will be made public in late December or early January after a surprise announcement on the winning unit’s campus, as mutually agreed upon and circumstances allow.

Louisiana returns to action on Saturday, Nov. 28, when it makes the short drive North to take on in-state rival ULM. Kickoff from Malone Stadium is slated for 2 p.m. and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN3.
