BATON ROUGE (Press Release) – LSU standouts Foster Moreau and Cole Tracy will make their final collegiate appearance on Saturday when they compete for the South squad in the Reese’s Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama.

Kickoff for the most prestigious of the college football all-star games is set for 1:30 p.m. CT at Ladd-Peebles Stadium. The game will be televised on the NFL Network.

Moreau goes into the Saturday’s game coming off an excellent week of practice as he was named the outstanding tight end for the week by Senior Bowl Executive Director Jim Nagy.

“Foster is a do it all tight end,” Nagy said. “He’s going to play on the end of the line of scrimmage, move people and block people. He also showed good hands, got open, tough kid and great guy to have around.”

Moreau capped his LSU career as one of the most productive tight ends in school history with 52 receptions for 629 yards and six touchdowns. The New Orleans native ranks No.7 in LSU history in receptions by a tight end and No. 4 in school history for TDs at that position.

Moreau, who graduated in December of 2018 with a degree in sports management, will wear No. 18 for the South.

Tracy, who spent one spectacular season at LSU after transferring from Division II Assumption College, completed his collegiate career as the most prolific kicker in NCAA history with 97 career field goals and 502 career points. Tracy is the NCAA record holder (no matter the division) in both of those categories.

In his one year at LSU, Tracy set the school record for field goals in a season with 29, tied the school’s single-game record with five field goals in the win over Georgia and kicked the first walk-off game-winner in regulation in school history with his 42-yard field goal to beat Auburn in week 3.

Tracy, who will wear No. 36 for the South, earned second team All-America honors in 2018 and was also a first team All-SEC selection in what was the most productive season for a kicker in LSU history. He was also a finalist for the Lou Groza Award.
